Jaya Bachchan who teams up with Karan Johar for the second time after Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham plays a stern unrelenting matriarch in Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani.
“She plays an entrepreneur and is as unrelenting stern and opinionated as Amitabh Bachchan in K3G. So in a way she is almost playing a gender-flipped version of her husband’s role in K3G.”
So did Karan Johar actually model Jaya Bachchan’s role in Rocky Aur Rani….on Amitabh Bachchan in K3G?
“It seems like it. Somewhere when Jayaji’s character in Rocky Aur Rani …was being written Amitji served as role model,” reveals the source.
There are scenes depicting a conflict of issues between Jaya Bachchan and her future daughter-in-law Alia Bhatt which will remind audiences of Mr Bachchan’s scenes with Kajol in K3G.
As a matter of fact, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani is Karan’s most family-driven drama since Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
