The great actress Jaya Bachchan wanted to be away from the Bollywood limelight after her marriage to Amitabh Bachchan in 1973, apart from being in Silsila here and Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa. She also made an exemption for Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Kal Ho Na Ho. Jaya’s last project was for the late Rituparno Ghosh’s Sunglass in 2012 where she was paired with Naseeruddin Shah for the first time. But sadly the film never got released.
Now after a long time, she is back in front of the camera and what’s surprising is that it’s the first time she will be performing in Marathi cinema. This film is being directed by the creative Marathi director Gajendra Ahire who has directed 50 films in Marathi some of the famous ones are Shevri, Anumati and The Silence being critical and commercial successes.
Ahire will be directing Jaya Ji in March in a Marathi film that is claimed to be completed in 20 days.
