"I took the little one out to meet the Sunday well wishers...apprehensive and wonder filled her little delicate hands and feet and mind...BUT...they are the sweetest gifts of the Almighty...and we are blessed to have them," a post on his official Facebook read.

Fans gather outside Jalsa, Amitabh's house, almost every Sunday morning. The "Paa" star also shared a photograph of the Sunday ritual on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"But the best moments come with 'little ones' even though a bit apprehensive," he posted.

Star couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai's daughter was born in November 2011.

Meanwhile, the actor is busy in promotional activities for his forthcoming film "Shamitabh", which also stars Dhanush and Akshara Haasan. The film will release February 6.
