Why does this story matter?
- Bachchan is known to be one of the few celebrities who loathe the media glare.
- A few days ago, too, when she was spotted with her granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda, she got into a tiff with droves of media photographers present there.
- A video of her saying, "I hope you tumble and fall," to a photographer has also been doing rounds on social media.
'I despise the people who interfere in your personal life'
Bachchan recently appeared on Nanda's podcastWhat The Hell Navya's latest episode, titled Limelight and Lemons. During the same, clarifying her stance, she said, "I hate it. I despise it. I despise the people who interfere in your personal life and fill their stomachs by selling those products. I hate it." "I always tell them... 'Aapko sharm nahi aati (Don't you feel ashamed?),'" she added.
The actor-politician doesn't mind pictures, but not sans consent
Bachchan also said that while she doesn't bother about coming under the scanner as long as her work is concerned, she does "mind" the rest. She added that people shouldn't click photos without "consent." Reacting to trolls who criticize her over her "anger" toward the media, she said, "You're intruding...when I'm walking somewhere, you're taking my picture. Why? Am I not a human being?"
Meanwhile, here's what brewing on the acting front for Bachchan
