While narrating the story of King Shahryar, Amitabh Bachchan said that the king was notorious for killing his wives after the wedding night. His last wife was a smart girl Shahrazad who decided to come up with a smart idea to save his life. She started telling the King a story every night before going to bed from late night till dawn. However, the smart girl never completed the story which left the King curious and he wanted to listen to the story the next day. Eventually, Shahryar decided not to kill Shahrazad.
Amitabh Bachchan jokingly said that she was a clever girl hinting that only a smart woman could outdo a cruel man. Although he did not take the names, people widely guessed that he was hinting towards the ladies of his house Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. The audience was in fits of laughter.
