Jaya Bachchan is well known to be outspoken. She never minces words. Her honesty to the core, she has lost her cool in front of the media and public more than once. Once some excited photographers referred to her bahu as ‘Ash’. And Jaya got pretty miffed with it and replied by saying, “Is she your friend?” A similar incident happened at Esha Deol’s Godh Bharai.
Apart from Jaya Bachchan, Mr. Bachchan, Abhishek, and Aishwarya are portraits of diplomacy. You will never find them losing their cool in public. Mrs. B is different. She cannot tolerate any kind of bad behavior. She will speak out even if the family cringes.
A person who is close to the family reveals that Jaya Bachchan’s behavior sometimes feels embarrassing to the family members. According to the reports, ”A family friend revealed that Mrs. B’s sharp tongue can become a matter of some embarrassment for the Bachchan family.”
As per an entertainment website, the incident happened when Jaya and Aish were met by a group of photographers who called out to Aishwarya to pose for them. But what they got was a tongue-lashing from Jaya.’ Jaya turned around and reportedly said, “Kya Aishwarya Aishwarya bula Rahe ho, tumhare class mein padhti thi kya?”
It happened when some excited photographers referred to her bahu as ‘Ash’. “Is she your friend?” the sharp-tongued Mrs. B snapped. Now, it was the turn of a priest at Esha Deol’s godh-bharai ceremony, who got carried away and started taking selfies with star guests. Not one to take such breach of protocol lying down, the Bachchan matriarch reprimanded the priest for his carelessness and snapped, “Please focus on your prayers.”
A family friend, who was present at the do, laughs indulgently,
“Firstly, she didn’t ‘snap’ at the priest. She very calmly told him to concentrate on his work. People around heard it and they were laughing, too. So, no bad blood at all. Having said that, let me add that Jaya is known to be extremely curt when she sees bad behavior in public. She’d have probably given the priest a dressing-down if he had persisted with his star-struck behavior. Luckily, he saw the sense in her advice and all went well thereafter.”
She is known for not tolerating any kind of nonsense and has often been seen snapping at people.
