"It was an idea that came to me very late. Why not put together a three-minute teaser of 'Jazbaa' and present it to her. I made sure she didn't get to know about it as a I slogged for 18 hours a day to get it ready in time," Gupta said.

The teaser of 'Jazbaa' was just one of the many gifts that were lined up for Aishwarya on her birthday.

If a source is to be believed, Abhishek had been birthday shopping for his wife in Dubai where he had gone for the premiere of his new film 'Happy New Year', and their daughter Aaradhya has put together a card specially designed for the occasion.

"This year, Aishwarya has a lot to celebrate during her birthday. Her husband's new film is a superhit. And Aishwarya is ready to make a comeback to acting with Sanjay Gupta's 'Jazbaa'," said a source close to the Bachchan family.

When asked what plans there were for her birthday, a source said "No big bash has been planned as such. Ash will be with Abhishek, her parents, brother and bhabhi (sister-in-law), Abhishek's parents and Aaradhya."

A trip to the temple is also on the anvil. Other than that, Aishwarya was in no mood for a big celebration this birthday.
