It’s a known fact that Jaya Bachchan has been a strict mother to her children; here’s how obedient Abhishek Bachchan has been
It isn't a hidden fact that Jaya Bachchan takes the final and binding decision for the family. According to several media reports, this has been one of the reasons why Jaya is also referred to as a strict mother-in-law to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
But was she the reason behind Abhishek and Rani Mukerji’s breakup? After the release of the movie Yuva, Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji's pair was considered one of the sizzling onscreen pairs in the industry.
Their next movie together Bunty Aur Babli was a commercial hit and Laga Chunari Mein Daag brought a twist in their personal as well as their professional lives.
The movie didn't work well commercially. Nor did Abhishek and Rani go forward as a couple in their lives.
According to sources, Jaya Bachchan had initially given a nod to Rani Mukerji and Abhishek's relationship because Rani is a Bengali. But a fight on the sets of Laga Chunari Mein Daag between Jaya and Rani estranged the couple.
When Rani's family later went onto discuss their marriage with the Bachchans, it is said that Jaya said certain things about Rani, which was unacceptable to the actress.
As per reports, Rani Mukerji was not being invited to Abhishek Bachchan and Aish's wedding. Rani reportedly stated that only Abhishek should answer that question. She even went on to say that it only proved what her importance in their lives is and that what she thought was 'friendship' was actually restricted to being only co-stars on the sets.
Moreover, Rani stated that inviting someone to a wedding is a personal choice so when tomorrow she decides to get married, she will choose only the people whom she wants to invite. A lot has been blown out of proportion, Mukerji had then said.
