Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan will turn 40 on Friday, 5 February, and the actor will reportedly head to Maldives to celebrate his birthday. Meanwhile, there were reports that wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has planned a surprise for Abhishek.

Miss Malini reported that Abhishek will leave for Maldives with his family that includes Aishwarya, Aaradhya, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. The Bachchan clan has planned to have a relaxing birthday this weekend.

Abhishek is currently busy shooting for his upcoming film "Housefull 3". The comedy flick will star Akshay Kumar, Abhishek, Riteish Deshmukh, Nargis Fakhri, Lisa Haydon and Jacqueline Fernandez in pivotal roles.

Abhishek will be playing the character of a budding rapper in the sequel of "Housefull". Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, a major portion of the film has been shot in London and the film is slated to be released this year.

Also, wife Aishwarya and father Amitabh are busy with their respective film projects. After delivering a phenomenal performance in "Jazbaa," Aishwarya will now appear in two big banner projects. One is Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" and the other is Omung Kumar's "Sarbjit."

Meanwhile, there were reports that Aaradhya is unwell and hence the former Miss World is trying every way possible to keep her little one close to her. Aaradhya is accompanying her mother to the sets of "Sarbjit" and staying in the vanity van of the actress.

However, it seems Aaradhya is fine now as the Bachchan family is expected to head to Maldives to celebrate the "Guru" actor's birthday. Whether he gets any surprise present from Aishwarya or not, only time will tell.
