People often go overboard and care little about sensibilities, especially at public events. This is what happened during an election rally in Agra which Jaya Bachchan attended along with Dimple Yadav.

In public life, Jaya Bachchan is a Member of Parliament on Samajwadi Party ticket first, then the wife, mother or mother-in-law of popular Bollywood stars. So it is natural that in public life, she wouldn’t like to be introduced as the wife of superstar Amitabh Bachchan first then something else. But then people often go overboard and care little about sensibilities, especially at public events. This is what happened during an election rally in Agra which Jaya attended along with Dimple Yadav, Kannauj MP and wife of Uttar Pradesh chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, on Wednesday.

Before being requested to address the rally, Jaya was introduced as the wife of “Mahanayak Amitabh Bachchan”. The actor-turned-politician didn’t get upset with the introduction but, apparently, didn’t like it as well as she remarked, “it was not necessary”, reports The Indian Express. Jaya rarely addresses election rallies but this year being crucial for Samajwadi Party, she can’t stop herself from giving her contribution to the cause of the party. Interestingly, Jaya also has the company of Akhilesh’s MP wife Dimple, who is becoming the centre of attraction in all her rallies.

Jaya asked supporters to vote for Samajwadi Party, saying, “You have given a lot of respect to your Bahu (herself), now it’s time for Chhoti Bahu. Give her victory. Give all our women candidates victory. Earlier, women were shy. They would never make announcements. But now, look at your Dimple Bhabhi. She is making announcements and will also fulfil them. Vote for your Akhilesh Bhaiyya and Dimple Bhabhi.”

While the Samajwadi Party supporters were thrilled with the speech of Dimple, the latter not only promised to give them free items like smartphones and pressure cookers if voted back to power, also said that the SP government would turn the Taj City into Paris.
