Talking about her childhood, Shweta Bachchan recalled how Jaya Bachchan was very particular about her joining extra-curricular activities. Shweta further added that she had to do Bharatnatyam, Hindi classical music, swimming, sitar and piano but she continued that Jaya was very free with her slaps. “I got slapped a lot. The ruler got broken on me once. She used to beat me a lot,” quipped Shweta. Jaya on the other hand in her defense said that Abhishek Bachchan hardly got slapped. “I believe always the first child gets thrashed. I got thrashed a lot as a child. My sisters didn’t,” said Jaya.

Jaya also revealed that while she got angry and impatient and raised her hands on Shweta, Amitabh Bachchan was against it. Shweta revealed, “the maximum punishment he gave was to stand in the corner. I liked that punishment as I used to make stories, and talk to myself there in the corner,” she said.
