According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Jaya Bachchan recently lashed out at the paparazzi. She allegedly told off photographers at Narsee Monjee's annual festival, Umang.
At the event she sternly told the paps to, "Please stop taking pictures! I hate it because the bulbs flash right in my eyes. These are basic manners, which Indians have to learn. Just because you have a camera and a mobile, you have the freedom of taking anyone's picture any time, without asking for permission! This is basic education that all colleges, schools and parents at home should teach their children."
Reportedly, she then announced that she wouldn't resume the chat till the photos had stopped, putting her microphone aside and turning away from the audience.
She added, "It's very annoying. I am trying to chat here and you are sitting right in front of me clicking right into my eyes. I hate indiscipline."
