Mumbai, April 9 : Veteran actress and Rajya Sabha member Jaya Bachchan, who turns 65 Tuesday, says her role as a mother matters more to her than any thing else. She also admits that she takes her duty as a parliamentarian seriously and that she is still game for movie roles, provided they are "challenging".
She gave up superstardom in 1973, when she ruled the box-office, to become wife to Amitabh Bachchan and subsequently mother to Shweta and Abhishek.
New Delhi, Jan 30 : The Bachchans have been accused by former IPS officer YP Singh for putting their money into a project, that has violated many BMC norms.
Singh has asserted in a press conference that though he cannot say that the Bachchan family gave a loan of Rs 9 crores to a real estate firm to build the mall in Mumbai, it is now clear that the mall is being built on illegal ground.
He also said that the Bachchan family must take the loan back and ask the BMC to demolish the partly-constructed mall.

After spending eight years in the Hindi film industry, Big B’s loving son Abhishek Bachchan, who celebrated his 33rd birthday on Thursday, said that the style of his acting is more like that of his mother, Jaya Bachchan.
In an interview, Junior Bachchan said, “Dad is an inspiration to the whole world. His creativity, dedication are legendary. He is a great source of inspiration. However, my acting style is more like my mother. I would like to believe that I have the best of both.”
