Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who celebrated her 41st birthday on November 1 at her house Janak, said she has had a sleepless birthday.

The actress, who has won a million hearts with her inimitable charm, said spending time with family and friends on birthdays have always been a constant for her for years. Calling her birthday a busy one, the former beauty queen said since daughter Aaradhya was up early, she had to be on her toes.

But, when she stepped out looking stunning in a fitted formal suit, it didn't look like she had to give up on a night's sleep. Red lips and perfectly coiffed hair added to the charm. "Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. If you are asking me if I am feeling good, then yes, I am feeling good. Life has become better and better with each passing day," IANS quoted her as saying.

When asked if there would be a double celebration on her birthday now that husband Abhishek Bachchan's film "Happy New Year" has seen immense success, the "Guzarish" actress said that it's been a fruitful year for the family. "It's been a great year. I think it's really sweet of Shah Rukh and Gauri that they are holding a success party tonight (Saturday)."

Praised for flawless beauty, the actress revealed that she has said yes to a few more scripts but cannot make an official announcement yet. "Unlike last two years, this year I have something to talk about. I have loved the script of 'Jazbaa' and we will start shooting for it from January. I am excited about this film."

Aishwarya will be next seen in Sanjay Gupta's thriller "Jazbaa". Going on the floor this December, the film also features Irrfan Khan and Anupam Kher in key roles. The trailer of the film, according to the makers, will be release at the Cannes Film Festival 2015.
