‘There was Roger Moore, Sophia Loren, and Amitabh Bachchan’: Jaya Bachchan recalls parent-teacher meetings at Abhishek-Shweta’s school

Jaya Bachchan recalled the look of silent embarrassment that she and her husband shared with celebrities similar to Roger Moore and Sophia Loren, after their kids scored poor marks within the unique faculty that all of them attended. In the newest episode of her granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda’s podcast, What the Hell Navya, Jaya stated that the media’s fascination for star-kids was solely restricted to India. At faculty, ‘nobody cared’ who Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan had been.

Jaya and Shweta joined Navya for the fifth episode of her podcast, through which they spoke about their relationship with the media, and what it’s wish to stay as a public determine.

She stated, “When they were in school — they were in a good school, but not an in-your-face school — there were a lot of celebrity kids. But nobody cared. Nobody gave a damn. And one of my best memories of their school time is once, at the parent-teacher meeting, they put a tag saying ‘Shweta Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan’, one on me, one on nana. All parents had it.”

She added, “And then we finished, and of course, it was not a very encouraging meeting. So, we came out, and it was snowing. Everybody was wearing their thick coats, and standing. There were three celebrities, with three report cards. There was Roger Moore, there was Sophia Loren, and there was Amitabh Bachchan. All three had report cards, and all three looked at each other and shook their heads, saying, ‘What are our kids doing?’ But nobody gave a damn. Nobody cared. Nobody gave you any special treatment. Nobody ill-treated you. Celebrity kids have this problem.”

Abhishek went to the Jamnabai Narsee School as a toddler, however Jaya was most likely referring to his stint on the Aiglon College in Switzerland. He dropped out of school within the US to return residence and assist out along with his father’s troubled ABCL firm. He made his debut as an actor in 2000.
