Shah Rukh Khan retorted to Jaya Bachchan’s comment
Gossip mongers got a lot to discuss when Jaya Bachchan recently tagged her son Abhishek Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan starrer blockbuster Happy New Year a nonsensical film. To add to this, a recent article in Asian Age says that Shah Rukh Khan retorted to Jaya Bachchan’s comment saying that even Amitabh Bachchan’s cult film Amar Akbar Anthony was considered a nonsensical film at that time.
Bachchans and Shah Rukh Khan have always shared a great bonding and Jaya considers SRK as her son. Jaya is known to speak her mind and according to the article in Asian Age, Jaya Bachchan had expressed her opinion about Happy New Year personally to Shah Rukh as well. To this, he coolly reminded her that Mr Bachchan’s Amar Akbar Anthony was also considered nonsensical in its time. There is no ill will between them over this comment, the article further states.
But apart from this drama, there were also reports in media saying that Mr Bachchan has sent a text message to King Khan apologizing for Jaya’s comment. However industry insiders who closely know Shah Rukh Khan and the Bachchan family say that nothing of this sort has happened and things are unnecessarily being blown out of proportion.
