Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, whose wife and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is in the last trimester of pregnancy, will be taking paternity leave in November when she is expected to be delivered of the child.

Abhishek, who is shooting for Rohit Shetty's 'Bol Bachchan,' has requested the director to give him a few days off, reports Filmfare magazine. "Director Rohit Shetty has generously adjusted all the dates and let off Abhishek so that he can be with his wife and kiddos," the magazine said.

Meanwhile, glowing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was spotted hiding her baby bump during the 'Mata Ki Chowki' puja hosted by Sanjay Dutt at his residence recently.
