Jaya Bachchan celebrates her birthday today. One of the brilliant actresses Indian Cinema has ever seen, Mrs Bachchan is an all-time favourite. It hurts that she doesn't do more movies these days. That scene where Shah Rukh Khan and Jaya Bachchan meet after several years in a mall in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham is perhaps the most underrated movie moment ever. Not a single word was spoken and yet we were in tears. We fell in love with her when we saw her in Guddi which played on Doordarshan. Nobody could tell that it was her debut performance. She was naive, innocent, chirpy and so us as the star-struck girl. You relate to that character more due to the sincere portrayal by the actress than anything else.
