Veteran actress Jaya Bachchan recently gace a cold shoulder to Kangana Ranaut at the screening of the film ‘Uunchai’ in Mumbai.
A video of the incident has now gone viral on the internet in which Kangana can be seen already standing on the dias when Jaya walked in. While Anupam Kher received the senior actress, Kangana uttered a faint “Hello Jaya ji”, smiling at her.
However, not one to conceal her emotions or mood in public, Jaya turned to look at Kangana, only to walk ahead without responding to her greeting. She was seen interacting with Anupam a few steps away from the ‘Queen’ actress and she even hugged and spoke to all the other guests present at the spot.

Kangana looked visibly awkward over the snub but she decided to maintain her smile and interacted with the others.
For those who don’t know, Jaya and Kangana had engaged in a cold war psot the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput after the former had taken a dig at the latter for attacking Bollywood time and again. “People who have made their name in the industry are calling it a gutter. Jis thali mein khate hai usme chhed karte hai. Galat baat hai,” Jaya had said.
To that, Kangana had responded, “Which plate are you talking about Jaya ji? A thaali was served in which there was a two-minute role, item numbers and romantic scene, that too after sleeping with the hero. I taught feminism to the film industry and decorated this thaali with patriotic films. This is my own thaali Jaya ji, not yours.”
Meanwhile, Abhishek Bachchan was also present at the screening of ‘Uunchai’ and he gave a courteous hug to Kangana before proceeding.
‘Uunchai’ stars Amitabh Bachchan, Boman Irani, Anupam Kher, Neena Gupta, Sarika and Parineeti Chopra in lead roles. The film is all set to hit the silver screens on November 11.
