Beti B rechristened as Bitiya for now!
Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai’s daughter is yet to find a name, the family has however decided that the name will start with the letter ‘A’, same as that of her parents. And for the time being grandpa Amitabh has decided to call the little one ‘Betiya’.
“Hopefully, we’ll zero in on one that everyone unanimously agrees on soon. My father (Harivansh Rai Bachchan) named my two other grandchildren Navya Naveli and Agastya. This time, the task has fallen on us, and until we find an appropriate name for her, she’s ‘bitiya’,” the actor says.
Senior Bachchan divulged that while his own children Shweta and Abhishek were growing up he was so busy with work that he could not spend much time with them. But now he wants to spend time and see his grand daughter grow. Infact, he had taken month and a half off, so he could spend every single day observing the baby grow and change.
“When she was born she looked a lot like Aishwarya, but now you can see a little bit of Abhishek in her too. It’s still too early to say who she will eventually resemble, babies change everyday,” said the loving ‘dadaji’ (granddad), pointing out that initially babies live in a black-and-white world: “I recently read that they start recognizing people and reacting to colours only after the first three months,” he said to a daily.
A proud grand father of three children is having a great time getting a peep into the world children live in. He expressed, the entire family, including Navya and Agastya, are excited about the new addition. “There’s quite an age difference between my other two grandchildren and this one. Navya is 14 and Agastya is 11, and they are very protective of the baby,” he says. “I hear things like, ‘When she’s seven, I will be 21, I’m going to make sure she does this.’ Kids today are so mature, it’s fascinating to get a window into their world.”
