"The 'jamai' has traditionally enjoyed respect and care and welcome from the city of the wife, and I have no idea why it does so, but thank the Lord that they do ... its a wonderful feeling to get the kind of welcome each time I visit Bhopal and Kolkata !" Amitabh wrote on his official blog.  

"I brought along Abhishek and Aishwarya and little Aaradhya too with me in the plane, so they could meet their Nani, Jaya's Mother, who lives here, as also Jaya's youngest sister and her family," he added.

The Bachchan family first visited Jaya's mother Indira Bhaduri's place so that one-year-old Aaradhya could meet Jaya's mother, younger sister and the rest of the family.

Bachchan's will stay in "Noor-us-Sabah" hotel in Bhopal with other cast members including Kareena Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpayee and Arjun Rampal, PTI reported quoting a source.
