Two of Hindi cinema’s finest actresses Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi play formidable adversaries in Karan Johar’s underproduction directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
But off screen they get along like a house on fire on the sets, so much so that the others on the sets are taken aback by the backslapping sisterhood.
“Aren’t they supposed to be two very serious actresses? Where did all the masti come from?” asks veteran Dharmendra with a chuckle
Says Shabana, “I never knew Jayaji is so much fun on the sets. I have always been a fan and she knows it. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen her in Abhimaan and Mili.I wanted to work with her for the longest time. One of the reasons I accepted Karan’s offer is to work with Jayaji.”
The 5-time National award winning actress says the fun never stops on the sets. “Jayaji’s spirit is still that of a young person and she has the craziest sense of humour.”
Jaya Bachchan too has only good things to say about her co-star Shabana. “She is delightful to work with .And she is very sweet to me. She gave me a gift with a very nice note. I am very moved.”
