Mumbai: The whole of Bollywood is geared up to celebrate megastar Amitabh Bachchan`s 70th birthday, but actress Dia Mirza won`t be a able to join the mega celebrations.

"Sometimes work takes you away from moments that you really wish to be part of...like tonight Mr. Bachchan`s 70th B`DAY celebration," tweeted Dia, who is in Jakarta for some work.

Amitabh turns 70 Thursday, but a special, star-studded celebration is set to witness the Who`s Who of the film industry Wednesday night.

Dia finds the veteran actor "a great inspiration".

"My most memorable film with him is Shoojit Sircar`s film (`Shoebite`). Can`t wait for you to see it. Epic performance. The amount of work he packs in, his dedication, commitment and love for the craft is just unparalleled. RESPECT," she added.
