Jaya Bachchan Reveals Grandson Agastya Nanda Watches Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham To ‘Make Fun’ Of Her!

Jaya Bachchan and Navya Naveli Nanda revealed that Agastya Nanda often sees Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and makes fun of Jaya. They were speaking on the What the Hell Navya podcast hosted by Jaya’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda.

When asked by Navya to name their favourite films, Jaya listed Gone With the Wind, On the Waterfront, Paul Newman’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. She added that she likes all Marlon Brando films too.

She said, “In Indian movies, I prefer the old ones, I prefer Dilip Kumar’s Devdas, Mughal-E-Azam. I can watch Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham anytime. I love mushy movies. I can watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black and all of Bimal Roy’s films. Godfather, I can watch Godfather all the time.”

Shweta said, “It (Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham) is a film that doesn’t age. Agastya watches it a lot. Sometimes, he does not understand when he watches nana’s (Amitabh Bachchan) films but Karan Johar’s directorial is something he can watch over and over again.” 

The veteran actress Jaya said that Agastya watches the film to “make fun” of her. “He watches it to make fun of me,” said she. After that Shweta explained that the generation gap can be a reason why he doesn’t understand. Shweta married businessman Nikhil Nanda in February 1997. They welcomed their eldest daughter Navya Naveli in December of the same year. Their son Agastya was born in 2000. Navya is working as an entrepreneur. On the other hand, Agastya is ready to make his acting debut with the Netflix film The Archies next year.
