Says a source close to the Bachchans, "Firstly she wouldn't have celebrated even if things were normal. But this time with the family mourning her mother-in-law's death there's no question of any celebration. When you tell her turning 60 is an event she shrugs and says it's just another day."

Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan and their bahu Aishwarya Rai have in fact, left for Miami where Abhishek Bachchan is shooting for Karan Johar's Dostana.
