The 72-year-old adds, “The amount of subtext the normally snooty sections of Indians are reading into Karan’s film is nothing short of astonishing.” ALSO READ: WHAT!?

The actress, who essays the role of Jamini, Alia Bhatt’s grandmother, also opened up about her husband Javed Akhtar’s reaction to her on-screen kiss. She told the media publication that while he wasn’t bothered seeing his wife kiss on-screen, her “rowdy behaviour” is what bothered him. “I was applauding, whistling, cheering and shouting. He was like, ‘I don’t know this woman sitting next to me.’ I went insane with excitement,” she said.
Talking about the romantic-drama, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani follows the journey of Rocky Randhawa and Rani Chatterjee, who hail from contrasting family backgrounds. In order to get married they come up with a plan to stay with each others’ families so that they can get to know each other better. The movie marks the directorial comeback of Karan Johar and stars Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi and many more in pivotal roles.
