Jaya Bachchan appeared only in a handful of films after the birth of Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan. In more recent years, Big B and Jaya appeared together in movies like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and the 2016 film Ki And Ka.
Abhishek co-starred with his mother in the 2002 Bengali film Desh. In one of his posts last year, the actor revealed that when he visited Jaya Bachchan on the sets of the film, he ended up doing a cameo appearance in it.
