Director Ashutosh Gowarikar is getting a lot of backlash for saying that Aishwarya Rai deserved to win the Best Actress trophy more that Priyanka Chopra at IIFA. But it was Jaya Bachchan, Ash’s mother-in-law, who prompted Gowarikar to root for Ash on stage at IIFA. It was shocking to see Gowarikar step on stage at IIFA to receive an award but humiliate Priyanka Chopra by publicly questioning how she managed to win the Best Actress award (for Fashion ) when Ash was also nominated in the same category for her performance in Jodhaa Akbar . Now, Jaya Bachchan has revealed that she suggested Gowarikar to bring up the issue on stage. “The fact is, I suggested he bring up the question on stage at IIFA. We were discussing why Aishwarya has not been given any award for ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ and I suggested Ashutosh bringing up the matter,” Mrs. Bachchan is quoted as saying in a media report. Interestingly, while Jaya Bachchan insists that Ash deserved the award, she hasn’t even seen Priyanka’s performance in ‘Fashion’. So the obvious question is, how can anyone claim who (Ash or Priyanka) deserved the award better without seeing both the performances? It appears that Ash’s saasu ma is being unfair to Priyanka.
