Amitabh Bachchan, or Big B as he is lovingly referred to, is turning 75 and is all set to hit Maldives with his family for his birthday celebrations.

The family will celebrate the occasion with fireworks, cake and wine.
Abhishek has decided to book a yacht and celebrate his father’s birthday with style. Aishwarya is currently shooting for her upcoming movie Fanney Khan, but will take a break and fly out for the holiday. Big B has also intimidated the team of Kaun Banega Crorepati about his impending holiday.
