Jaya Bachchan- The Ideal Bahu, Saas and Everything in Between

A well-known face in the film as well as a political figure, Jaya Bachchan who turns 69 today, has come a long way since her debut in Mahanagar as a 15-year-old. The lady, who has played several roles in her film career and even received a lot of appreciation for it plays several roles in real life too, be it of a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a mother-in-law or a even a politician for that matter. Today, on the occasion of her birthday, let's look at some of the movies she has portrayed these roles in and inspired many.

Stepmother – Kal Ho Naa Ho

The selfless Jenny in Kal Ho Naa Ho never differentiated between her own children and her stepdaughter.

Wife – Abhimaan

When a more popular and talented Uma sacrifices her singing career only for her husband's happiness. Selfless yet again.

Daughter-in-law – Sholay

A widowed Radha, who even after the death of her husband, continued to fulfill the duties of an adarsh bahu and stayed with her father-in-law.


Mother – Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…


We totally love how Nandini Raichand keeps waiting for her son with that pooja ki thali at her doorstep. To say nothing of the loving mother-in-law and grandmother she proves to be to her son's wife and son.

Daughter – Mili


This 1975 movie shows a beautiful relationship of a severely ill Mili with her father. We love how she plays the ideal daughter who is mischevious and full of life in spite of being well aware of her condition.

Here's wishing this fabulous lady a very happy birthday! Which of these roles of Jaya Bachchan tops your list? Let us know in the comments below.
