Amitabh Bachchan posted a collage on son Abhishek's birthday on Friday.

As he wished his son Abhishek Bachchan on his birthday on Friday, actor Amitabh Bachchan was every bit a proud father. He walked to Instagram and shared with his son a then-and-now collage of throwback photographs.

Sharing it, he wrote: "... I lead him once holding his hand .. he leads me now holding my hand ." The picture on the left was a black and white picture from the childhood of Abhishek that showed Amitabh leading his son, holding his hand. The second one, maybe from a Bollywood feature, was more recent and showed the reverse.

Amitabh's fans were pleased to see the picture; one wrote: "Such beautiful pictures and the memories attached with them." Another said: "Many happy returns of the day. Happy Birthday Mr Abhishek. God bless you." Many others wrote in to say "Happy birthday"

His sister, Navya Naveli Nanda, also wanted Abhishek. "Happy birthday best friend to more NYC nights & Chelsea games. You may just be my favourite family member My partner in all crimes!"Happy birthday best friend to more games in NYC nights & Chelsea. You may just be my favourite member of my family in all crimes!

Actor Ajay Devgn, who works on MayDay with Amitabh and has previously done Bol Bachchan with Abhishek, took to Twitter and wrote: "Happy Birthday dear Abhishek. Hope you have a good one. Wish you the very best today & always." He posted a photo of them together, too.
