Amid swirling rumors of Abhishek’s impending divorce, Jaya Bachchan surprised many by declaring her daughter, Shweta Bachchan, as her source of strength. This revelation, shared during an episode of Navya Naveli Nanda’s podcast, raised eyebrows, particularly given the ongoing speculation about Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s marital status.
Jaya Bachchan, often known for her stern demeanor and strained relationship with the media, showcased a softer side when discussing her family.
Despite previous instances of expressing a bias towards her son Abhishek, this recent statement highlighted a shift in her perspective.
In the podcast episode, when Shweta was asked about her reserved opinions, Jaya extended her hand towards her daughter, emphasizing, “She is my strength.” This admission surprised Shweta, who responded with gratitude. Jaya went further to assert that Shweta is her strength more than her son Abhishek, attributing it to Shweta being a woman.
“She is, more than my son, she’s my strength. I don’t know whether that’s because she’s a woman. But she’s my strength.”
The revelation sparked reactions on Reddit, where netizens expressed their astonishment at Jaya’s newfound support for Shweta.

Despite these revelations, Jaya defended her actions, citing Shweta’s challenging behavior as a reason for her past disciplinary actions.
