RARKPK: Jaya Bachchan will be seen as a loud ‘halwai’
Soon after Karan Johar introduced Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt as the lead stars of his upcoming directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, details of the their on-screen family members were revealed through an interesting clip. While Alia shared that veteran actress Shabana Azmi will be her relative in the film, Ranveer revealed that superstar Dharmendra and his Sholay co-star Jaya Bachchan will be his on-screen family. Well, a month ago reports suggested that Jaya will be seen in her first negative role in this family dramedy.
Buzz suggested that the veteran actress will be playing the character of Ranveer’s on-screen grandmother, who is scheming, manipulative and evil! However, the latest report shared by Bollywood Hungama has now stated something else. According to this report, Jaya ji will be seen in a comic role. A source close to the production was quoted saying, “Jayaji plays a halwai (mithai maker). She plays a loud earthy outspoken woman who loves a good laugh, at her own expense or at the expense of others. It is her most fun-filled role to date.”
The source went on to add, “She loves Karan Johar for giving her a role that didn’t require her to be serious all the time. She is enjoying just letting down her hair.” That’s not all! The report further revealed that Jaya keeps joking about how KJo could not get comedian and actor Johnny Lever’s dates, so he signed her.
Well, we can’t wait to see Jaya Bachchan as a halwai when the film hits theatres on 10th February, 2023.
