Jaya Bachchan Pushes A Man In A Rally, Was It Right Or Was It Rude?

The incident took place recently during a roadshow Jaya Bachchan did in support of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Howrah, West Bengal. Jaya Bachchan is widely famous for losing her cool with reporters and cameras around her. She is known for absolutely rejecting those who click her pictures, especially take a selfie without her permission. She has reprimanded many journalists, photographers, and fans in the past for the same reason.

Many are not aware that, during their appearance on Karan Johar's chat show 'Koffee With Karan', her kids Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan had revealed that she resents being photographed because she comes from an old school of thought where people are not supposed to click other people's photos without their consent.

Okay we are ready to understand this to some extend, however, during this rally, the man was pushed from the head by Bachchan as he tried to get a selfie on his phone during the roadshow. The video of the same is now going viral on social media with most Twitter users calling it ‘rude’ and ‘insulting’. Many also pointed out that if a male politician had done this to a woman in the rally, there would have been a greater hue and cry over the incident. Does her actions have any justifications?
