Jaya Bachchan is portraying a negative role for the first time in her career. She plays Ranveer Singh’s devious, manipulative grandma in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.

It’s an outright negative character, according to a person close to the project. “Jaya has never played a negative role in her entire career. Not even a slightly grey character. When she was offered this really evil character her first reaction was, ‘Why me?’ Karan had to work really hard on convincing Jaya to take up the offer. In the beginning she had some difficulties in understanding how her character’s devilish mind worked. Being the seasoned actress that she is, she soon got a hang of it. She’s having a blast playing this evil woman,” says a source in the know.

Interestingly, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jaya’s daughter-in-law, will play a negative character in Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan.

KJo announced the film, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani last month. Sharing a video, he wrote in the caption, “Thrilled to get behind the lens with my favourite people in front of it! Presenting Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, headlined by none other than Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt and written by Ishita Moitra, Shashank Khaitan & Sumit Roy.
