In one of segments of the podcast, Jaya Bachchan threw light on the two years of the pandemic and shared how it gave her two new best friends. While talking to Navya and Shweta, the veteran actress revealed that she has found her best friends in them and added that she can share anything to them. Sharing that she would want to grow at this age as well, Jaya said:

“In the last two years, my best friends have been Navya and Shweta. It's a confession and it's the truth because I feel that I can say anything I like to them, and they will tell me off, especially Shweta. Somebody telling you ‘I don’t agree with you’ is important. I would want to grow at this age too.”


Furthermore, Jaya also mentioned how the Bachchans had so much fun together during the lockdown and added that the good times brought them closer together. To which, Navya agreed with her and shared that she prefers to tell a few things about her life to her mother, Shweta and grandmother, Jaya, before anyone else. She can be heard saying:

“Even today there are things I would share with you guys and probably not tell my friends.”

“In the last two years, I have not lost anything, I have gained two friends.”
