Speaking on his appearance on Koffee with Karan with sister Shweta, Abhishek talked at length about his mother and why she always seems so angry at the paparazzi. Jaya Bachchan is often caught on camera, getting angry at photographers for clicking her pictures.
“She gets very claustrophobic when there are too many people around her. She also doesn’t like it when people take her pictures without asking her. She comes from that school of thought,” said Shweta. Also, the duo joked how photographers maintain distance when they see Jaya Ji at the airport.
On the show, Shweta further revealed that Abhishek was her mother’s favorite and that her eyes light up every time Abhishek enter the room, similar to her reaction on seeing Shah Rukh Khan in their film Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.
