A promo for the new episode of Koffee with Karan Time Machine looks back at the appearances of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his family ahead of his 77th birthday on October 11. It will take audiences through some of the film family’s most memorable moments featuring Amitabh, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan-Nanda. What grabbed eyeballs instantly was Jaya’s confession of love for her daughter-in-law. In the clip, Jaya is overheard saying, “She is lovely, I love her.” She then continues to sing praises for the former Miss World, also weighing in on how well she has fit into the Bachchan clan.
Jaya continues, “She is such a big star herself but has fitted in so well!” Supporting her mother, Shweta adds, “Whenever there is a new person in a family, roles do shuffle”. This is not the first time Jaya can be seen gushing over Aishwarya, whom she refers to as a hands-on-mom. She previously said, “Sometimes I tease Aishwarya and I say Aaradhya is a very lucky girl because can you imagine having a nurse like Miss World Aishwarya! I have never seen her push herself whenever we all are together. I like that quality of hers to stand behind.”
Jaya is also extremely possessive about Aishwarya. At Subhash Ghai's party last year, Jaya shouted at a journalist who called Aishwarya, Ash instead of her full name. She said, “Ash kya hota hai? (What do you mean by Ash?) Is she your school friend?” The Jazbaa star will also discuss her life after her wedding to Abhishek and more. The Koffee with Karan video begins as the show host and film-maker Karan Johar asks Amitabh to list advantages of being Amitabh Bachchan. The Piku star says, “I am son of Harivansh Rai Bachchan.”
