Sharing the photo, Kirron wrote on Instagram, “Wonderful to meet Jaya after so long in Parliament.” Kirron is seen in a white kurta and specs, while Jaya is seen in a yellow cotton saree with a bindi on her forehead.
Actor Nafisa Ali Sodhi reacted, “My elegant friends.” A fan commented to the post, “Picture Perfect.” Another said, “How cute. You both are my favourite.” A comment also read, “Two elegant ladies in one frame.” Pointing at how the two hail from different political parties, a fan also asked, “Jhagra nahi kiye? (didn’t you fight)?”
During the Parliament session, Jaya raised the issue of continuing manual scavenging in parts of the country saying lack of proper rehabilitation is driving scavengers to again take up manual scavenging as a profession.
Jaya will also be making her comeback to acting with Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The film also stars Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi.
Kirron is currently a judge on reality show India’s Got Talent as well. She is among the four judges on the show and is often seen scolding her co-judge Badshah. Shilpa Shetty and Manoj Muntashir are the other two judges. Kirron had returned to work after undergoing treatment for multiple myeloma.
Kirron’s son Sikandar Kher and Jaya’s son Abhishek Bachchan are close friends. Sikandar calls Jaya ‘mother from another brother’.
