When Karan Johar claimed Jaya Bachchan is misunderstood about being rude to the paparazzi

Recently, while speaking at Mid-Day’s show, Sit With Hitlist, Karan Johar revealed an unheard insight into Jaya Bachchan's personality. Talking about Jaya’s lack of interest towards getting clicked by the paparazzi, the filmmaker revealed that many people assume this gesture as a reflection of her rude personality and arrogant behaviour. However, Karan claimed that the veteran actress was severely misunderstood, as she is very relaxed and calm in real life. He said:

“She is the warmest, kindest, most giving human being. She is so calm and composed. She would sit there on set chat, with all the ADs and she would play pranks. She is great fun. And she is nothing like this. It is just that if you put cameras in her face, she is going to get annoyed. I wish everyone would get an experience of the large heart that Jaya Aunty has. She is not like this at all.”
