Have Shah Rukh Khan and Jaya Bachchan Reconciled?
Or so it seemed at the Kolkata International Film Festival
A lot was speculated when Jaya Bachchan recently referred to King Khan’s movie, Happy New Year as being “nonsensical”. Speaking at the Mumbai Literature Festival, Jaya Bachchan had said "I only watched the film because Abhishek is in it. I told him he's a great actor if he can act stupid in front of the camera like that.” The comments allegedly did not go down too well with Shah Rukh but these reports were later rubbished by the actor who tweeted, “Have not read a more crappy, made up piece of journalism lately.” But nonetheless, everybody waited with bated breath as the two came together to inaugurate the 20th Kolkata International Film Festival. Would there be any uneasy moments? Any more rifts? However, much to everyone’s surprise, all was well between them and Shah Rukh was seen hugging and greeting Jaya and the rest of the Bachchan clan at the ceremony. So all’s well that ends well!
