The makers of Uunchai hosted a special screening of the movie for the film fraternity in Mumbai on Wednesday. The event was filled with A-list Bollywood celebrities greeting the cast of the movie. The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, and Boman Irani in lead roles and will mark the return of Sooraj Barjatya as a director after 2015’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Many celebrities attended the event. While Big B was missing from the event, not only did his wife and son, Jaya Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, attend the screening, but they also had conversations with Barjatya, Irani, and Kher, who were greeting all the guests. Salman Khan, Shehnaaz Gill, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut, and producer Bhushan Kumar were some of the guests who attended the event.

It was a happy occasion to watch the celebrities mingling among themselves. But what caught our attention was that while Abhishek greeted Kangana warmly and had a conversation with her, his mother and actress Jaya completely ignored the Manikarnika actress’ existence.
In one of the videos that are going viral, it can be seen that Jaya walks in front of Kangana, where she was posing for a picture. The 74-year-old actress completely ignores Kangana and goes to have a chat with Anupam, where she also greets Bhagyashree and Boman. Fans were left shocked at her behaviour. In another video that is circulating the internet, Abhishek Bachchan is seen greeting Kangana warmly while she is having a discussion with Anupam Kher. They even get their pictures clicked together.
