In Karan Johar’s upcoming romantic comedy “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani,” Jaya Bachchan portrays a strict matriarch, alongside co-stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
Jaya Bachchan‘s character in Karan Johar‘s upcoming romantic comedy Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani has gotten everyone’s attention and curiosity ever since the teaser of the film dropped last month. Her character Dhanlakshmi, a stern matriarch, seems to be an anomaly in the bright, cheerful universe of the Dharma Productions movie.
Jaya’s character has come into the spotlight yet again, in the latest song of the film, called Dhindhora Baje Re. The energetic dance number featuring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh comes in the film on the occasion of Durga Puja. In a sea of red dresses and background, Jaya stands as a lone figure in a dark blue sari.
Netizen’s reaction to Jaya’s expression
Twitter can’t get over Jaya’s stern expressions throughout Dhindhora Baje Re. Many of the users took to the microblogging site to share funny reactions and memes on the same.
One user shared a screenshot of Jaya’s expression from the song and captioned it, “Jaya Bachchan’s reaction after watching Kajra Re,” referring to the popular dance song from Shaad Ali’s 2005 romantic comedy Bunty Aur Babli, featuring Jaya’s family — husband Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai. However, at that point of time, Aishwarya wasn’t married to Abhishek.
About Dhindhora Baje Re
The new song shows Alia Bhatt in an over-the-ankle red saree and Ranveer Singh in a red anarkali and churidaar, dancing in front of a Durga Puja idol. The two get strange looks from their respective family members as they dance their hearts out. While Rani’s family members finally come around, Jaya Bachchan, who plays Rocky’s grandmother, walks out in rage.
The song shows Alia and Ranveer twinning in traditional red attires, dancing with full enthusiasm. The song is set inside a Durga Puja celebration, and has several background dancers, also dressed in red. It has been sung by Darshan Raval and Bhoomi Trivedi and penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The music has been composed by Pritam and the song is choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.
Alia and Ranveer launched the song in Kolkata.
