"Blessings from elders, from family and the extended family makes the day delightful and comfortable, even though the wife is out of the country... 41 years! It has been a while has it not in the life of an individual,” Bachchan posted on his blog.

"I insisted we (Abhishek and I) chill at home.. So, we chatted and exchanged notes and saw two movies back to back.. Yaa, you guessed right.. Action movies..! And when that was over back to our pastime - Football and watching the run up to the World Cup," he added.

71-year-old Bachchan married Jaya on June 3, 1973. The couple has two children - Abhishek and daughter Shweta.

Amitabh feels that their children are the biggest strength of their lives.

 "Our report card does not deal with numbers and comment... it merely emphasises the reports of our progeny - Shweta and Abhishek. They are our numbers, standings, rankings, marks... whatever! They be right we all are right!," he added.
