Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who turned 41 today, is in a happy space and looking forward to a busy year ahead.

The actress will return to the big screen with Sanjay Gupta's 'Jazba', for which she will begin shooting in January.

She is also happy that husband Abhishek Bachchan's role is being appreciated in Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Happy New Year'.

"I am in a happy space and with each passing day. You find your calm in the hectic day. 2014 is a good year. Abhishek has got so much of appreciation. As a wife, I feel happy. Shah Rukh's birthday is tomorrow and we have common jokes between us as 1st is my birthday and then on 2nd is SRK's," she told reporters here.

When asked about her thoughts on turning 41, Aishwarya said she takes each day as it comes.

"No thoughts. I just live each day for what it is. And this has been my answer always. I am very very thankful to have such a blessed life. Family, work, friends and growing experiences itself speak volume, " she said.

After celebrating father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan's birthday last month before her birthday, Aishwarya now plans to bring in daughter Aaradhya's big day in a grand style on November 16.

"Last year it was all about her singing and that continues. She has already recognised and she knows because from October to November there are so many birthdays and she also knows that her birthday is coming. There will be lot of fun on her birthday this year and I am planning it on a daily basis."

The former Miss World said she is in talks with other directors besides Gupta for 'Jazba', but will like them to make the announcement.

"I love investing my time and energy on my daughter. Sanjay was planning to begin the film in December but I told him that we will roll by January. I am very much excited about 'Jazba'. It is a very interesting film. There are other directors too. Exciting and busy year ahead and it's going to be multi-tasking for me on a different level," the actress said.
