Veteran actress, Jaya Bachchan often hits the headlines for her encounters with the media on several occasions. Jaya's hatred towards the paparazzi culture is not hidden from anyone, as we have often witnessed her lashing out at the shutterbugs for clicking her pictures. She hates getting clicked as she feels that the shutterbugs are trying to intrude in her personal life.
Jaya Bachchan was one of the many celebrities who attended the special screening of Sooraj Barjatya’s upcoming film, Uunchai in Mumbai. The film features Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Danny Denzongpa, Neena Gupta, Sarika and Parineeti Chopra in pivotal roles. Pictures and videos from the screening are doing rounds on the internet, and a video featuring Jaya Bachchan and Kangana Ranaut has grabbed all the attention.
In one of the videos from the event, we can see Jaya Bachchan getting a warm welcome from actor, Anupam Kher on the red carpet while Kangana Ranaut was standing behind her in a peach-hued saree. Kangana approached the veteran actress, and said with a big smile, ‘Hello Jaya ji’, as the latter was busy greeting someone else. However, Jaya looked uninterested in having a conversation with Kangana as she acknowledged her greetings and went on to click pictures with Anupam Kher. Meanwhile, Kangana's restlessness was clearly visible while getting ignored in the video.

As soon as the video surfaced online, netizens were not pleased with Jaya's behaviour towards Kangana. They flooded the post's comment section and started trolling the veteran actress. A user wrote, "Kangana ko dekh ke darr gayi chidchidi cranky Jaya." Another netizen wrote, "She ignored Kangana… Too much of ghamand this old lady has… Rekha kitni achchi hai… yeah haddi ban gye." Meanwhile, the third user added, "Ash ka kya hal hota hoga... aisi saas mili hai." Check out the comments below:
Earlier, Jaya Bachchan's children, Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda had graced the popular celebrity chat show, Koffee With Karan 6. During one of the segments of the show, Abhishek revealed that whenever the Bachchan family steps out with Jaya Bachchan for any public event, he, his father, Amitabh Bachchan, and his wifey, Aishwarya do a silent prayer and collect themselves before walking the red carpet. In his words:
"If it's like the four of us, Dad, Aishwarya and I just hold hands, say a silent prayer before the red carpet. And then we collect ourselves and walk on. If Shweta Di is with us, we just send her with Maa."
Meanwhile, the much-awaited film, Uunchai will hit the theatres on November 11, 2022.
