Jaya Bachchan scolds Panditji at Esha Deol’s baby shower


Veteran actor cum politician Jaya Bachchan is a strict lady. She is outspoken and never hesitates to speak her mind out. Jaya Bachchan was invited for Esha Deol’s baby shower ceremony and at the function also she doesn't mind mincing words. Jaya’s strictness left the guests in splits.

A guest from the ceremony told Mid-Day that the senior actress asked an associate of the Pandit to concentrate on the rituals rather than clicking selfies with Esha. This apparently left the guests in splits. "The moment Jayaji noticed someone from Panditji's team clicking a selfie, she reprimanded him saying, 'aap puja mein dhyan dijiye'. Everyone burst into laughter!," the guest told Mid Day.

Meanwhile, Esha was overjoyed that Jaya Bachchan and Dimple Kapadia graced the function. "They are like family. Jaya aunty and I have a very special connection — our family functions are incomplete without her," she said.

Talking about the function, the actress said: "It was a wonderful ceremony with just Bharat's and my families in attendance. Everyone present performed the 'tel kumkum'. As part of the rituals, Bharat and I took three pheras around the fire. I joked with Bharat that he was stuck with me again."

Esha Deol's baby shower ceremony was an intimate but lavish affair. She also took wedding vows at her 'Godh Bharai' according to Sindhi rituals. Instead of saat pheras, Esha and Bharat took three pheras.

The moomy-to-be looked gorgeous in a red lehenga designed by Neeta Lulla. Married in 2012, Esha and Bharat are expecting their first child.
