Are movie stars really that different from us, the aam aadmi?
Apparently not. They share similar feelings and views on most things as the rest of society does. People don’t want to watch their precious daughter-in-law getting too close to a man who is not her husband. Bollywood stars have similar feelings! This must be why Jaya Bachchan spoke negatively about steamy scenes in Bollywood. She said, “Everything is thrown at our face. People have forgotten subtlety. Open display of affection is considered smart… sharam naam ki toh cheese hee nahi hai (people are no longer ashamed). Now, it’s about big collections at the box office, Rs 100 crore films, first weekend collection…It’s all Greek to me.”
The fat that this comment comes about the same time when Aishwarya’s new film has released says a lot about their difference of opinion on certain things. It is worth mentioning that years ago when Ash and Hrithik shared fiery onscreen chemistry in films like Dhoom 2 and Jodha Akbar, the Bachchan khaandaan wasn’t very happy about it even then!
