'Hope you fall,’ says Jaya Bachchan to paparazzo who stumbled; netizens lash out at her rude behaviour


Jaya Bachchan, on Sunday, attended the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai with her granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda. However, she once again made it to the news for all the wrong reasons. Her encounter with the media is creating a heavy buzz on the internet that has irked many netizens. In a viral video, the veteran actress can be seen walking inside the venue with Navya when a paparazzo stumbled while clicking their pictures. On seeing this, Jaya says, “Serves you right.”

After a while she added and said, “I hope you double up and fall." Her reaction did not end here as she asked the media persons about the organization they belong to. When they answered they were a part of paparazzi teams like Viral Bhayani and Manav Manglani, Jaya feigned confusion. “What? Who? Kaunsa akhbaar hai yeh (Which newspaper is this)?” An uncomfortable Navya, who was walking alongside her nani was seen trying to calm her down but failed as Jaya kept questioning the camerapersons.

This insensitive behaviour did not sit well with the netizens who called out the actress for being extremely rude and sadist. A user wrote on Twitter, "What is she always angry about!" while another wrote, "She shouldn't be give this much priority by media." Another user wrote, "This is what Bollywood Bhaands like Jaya Bachchan think of normal people. What kind of senseless person would wish for people to fall harder and get injured?"

Jaya is a four-time Rajya Sabha MP from Samajwadi Party and has been in the parliament since 2004. Such insensitive conduct from a celeb and political leader is completely unwarranted.
