June 25 : Veteran star Jaya Bachchan, who keeps herself away from the limelight of stardom, will soon debut in the digital space. Her husband, megastar Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek Bachchan have already made their OTT debuts. While Amitabh Bachchan debuted in the digital space with his film Gulabo Sitabo in 2020, Abhishek Bachchan was seen in the web series Breathe: Into The Shadows.
The actor-politician Jaya Bachchan will reportedly make her OTT debut with Endemol Shine India's forthcoming venture titled Sadabahar. Reportedly, the veteran actress had started shooting for Sadabahar in February this year. However, with the second wave of Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdown in Maharashtra, shooting of the project was halted in April.
Now with the relaxation of the lockdown in the state, Jaya Bachchan has reportedly resumed shooting for the web series. This week, shootings will take place at two locations--one at Sony Mony and another at Apna Bazaar in Andheri. The team has resumed shoot in a strict bio-bubble format, and the makers have ensured that only 50 members are present in the unit.
Jaya Bachchan was last seen in a special guest appearance on the big screens in Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s film Ki & Ka in 2016. After five years, the veteran actress will return to the screen. The veteran actress’ first film as an adult was Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s film Guddi in 1971, thereby marking 2021 as her 50th year in the film industry.
