"Don't you have any shame?"
Jaya Bachchan was seen getting angry at fans for trying to take pictures with her and her son Abhishek Bachchan.
The incident took place when Jaya and Abhishek visited Bhopal’s Kali Bari temple, which was crowded with people.
Both stars were wearing masks but some recognised Abhishek and began mobbing him for pictures.
However, this did not go down well with Jaya.
A viral video showed the veteran actress losing her temper with the crowd.
While Abhishek was happy to stop and take a few pictures, Jaya is heard yelling:
“What are you doing? We said no, have some decency. The people of Bhopal must have some decency.”
As Abhishek continued to take pictures with fans, some women tried to take selfies with the actor.
Gesturing at the women, Jaya shouted:
“At least you people leave him.”
She then turned around and said:
“What are you guys doing? Don’t you have any shame?”

Her angry display was met with a mixed response on social media.
While some said that it was not right for fans to ask them for pictures inside a temple, others called Jaya Bachchan “arrogant” for refusing to take pictures.
On numerous occasions, Jaya Bachchan has stated that she is not a fan of getting photos of her taken during random public appearances.
Previously, she looked at the paparazzi in anger when they tried to take her pictures as she made her way to her daughter Shweta Bachchan’s birthday party in a car.
In 2014, she lashed out at a media person, saying:
“Is this a place to click a picture?”
Recently, Jaya obliged for pictures as she visited a puja pandal in Juhu, after Kajol scolded her in jest and said:
“You have to remove your mask.”
Jaya obliged for a few pictures before immediately putting her mask back on.
Some fans commented that the actor is being cautious because her husband Amitabh Bachchan contracted Covid-19 for a second time in September 2022.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Jaya Bachchan will next be seen in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
The film will also star Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi and Dharmendra.
Abhishek was last seen in Dasvi alongside Nimrat Kaur and Yami Gautam.
