The Bachchans have always remained in the limelight. Be their contribution to the film industry or the style statement, they know how to rule it. But do you know sometimes Aishwarya and Jaya Bachchan gang up against Abhishek Bachchan? In an interview, talking about his bond with mom and wife, the actor revealed that Aish and Jaya gang up against him and keep rattling on in Bengali, which Abhishek doesn't understand much.
Talking to DNA, Abhishek was asked 'who Jaya Bachchan sides with during an argument'. To which he replied, "Ma and Ash gang up against me and they keep rattling on in Bengali. Mom knows the language because she is Bengali and Aishwarya had worked with Rituda in Chokher Bali, so she also can speak the language quite well. So whenever they have to team up against me, they start talking in Bengali."
"I understand it (Bengali) a bit. But I cannot speak much. My naani keeps complaining that I’m the only person in the family who does not know the language theek se. Even Pa can speak it well because he spent a lot of his formative years in Kolkata. I’m the only odd one out in the picture," he added.
