Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the former Miss World, will turn 41 on 1 November.

With the birthday approaching, speculations have been doing the rounds as to what special plans the actress and her family have to mark her birthday this year.

During a recent interaction with the media, husband Abhishek Bachchan and the "Happy New Year" actor when asked about Aishwarya Rai's birthday plans, he mentioned that it will be a triple celebration this year, reported Business of Cinema.

First the celebration of his wife's birthday, then his "HNY" co-star Shah Rukh Khan who will celebrate his birthday on 2 November and then there's the success of "Happy New Year".

Speaking about the guest list for the birthday party, the actor mentioned that the celebration will be a small affair as "HNY" is enough to mark the special day.

While no concrete plans have been made on Aishwarya's birthday, the celebration will surely be special for the actress with her daughter Aaradhya, who will turn three on 16 November.

Moreover, with Abhishek's plan of triple celebration, it would be interesting to find if the Bollywood diva celebrates her birthday along with King Khan and the "Happy New Year" team.

Meanwhile, Abhishek is receiving positive responses for his role in Shah Rukh starrer "Happy New Year". The film, also starring Deepika Padukone, was released on 24 October and is minting huge money at the box office.

On the other hand, Aishwarya Rai will be making her comeback in Sanjay Gupta's "Jazbaa". The shooting of the film will reportedly begin in December and apart from the Bachchan bahu, the film also stars Irrfan Khan.
