Happy Birthday : Abhishek, Shweta Bachchan wishes mum Jaya Bachchan with throwback photo

Former actress and a current politician, Jaya Bachchan, celebrates her 72nd birthday today. Her children -- actor Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Shweta Bachchan -- made sure to wish their mother on social media as soon as the clock struck 12. While Abhishek shared an adorable photo and message for his mum, Shweta dug into the family photo archives and shared a photo from many moons ago. In the photo, a young Jaya can be seen donning a simple saree as she reads a book. 

Shweta's caption for the photo was rather poetic. While quoting poet EE Cummings, Shweta wrote, "I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go ...)-happy birthday Mama; I love U (with a little help from e e Cummings)." Apart from Jaya, Shweta and Abhishek can also be seen sitting next to their mum in the photo. 

In fact, Shweta's daughter Navya Nanda commented, "You are daydreaming here also." To this, Abhishek replied, "at least she's not on the phone."
