Jaya Bachchan has no idea about her first salary, recalls paying for her education: ‘Didn’t want my dad to finance me’

Women have always had a complicated relationship with money. But slowly but surely things are changing. Speaking on the subject, Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter and businesswoman Navya Naveli Nanda asked her actor grandmother Jaya Bachchan, and her writer, Mother Shweta, on the subject.

Jaya confessed that she had no relationship with money when she started working as she was only 13 at the time. The actor-politician said she remembered her father buying her a record player and playing Cliff Richard songs on it: “I had no relationship with money. The first paycheck I got was when I was 13. I don’t even know how much I paid.” But later on, Jaya had come to terms with finances in her life and said, “When I went to the institute (to study), I told my father that I didn’t want him to finance me, I paid for my education.”

Meanwhile, Shweta admitted she was very bad with money and revealed that she didn’t want her daughter Navya to get married until she had enough of herself to buy a roof over her head: “It was very bad. In Delhi I had a job as an assistant teacher in a kindergarten. I was getting Rs 3,000 per month. I’ve put it on hold, but I’m not an example you should follow… actually I would never want you (Navya) to become like me. I told Navya you can’t get married until you have enough money in your bank to buy yourself a house.”

jaya went on to shed light on the subject of actors and how they handle money, stating that only a handful of them handle it on their own, while Navya claimed that these days more and more women are entering the financial industry and educating themselves about money in general.

On the work front, Jaya Bachchan will soon be seen in Karan Johar’s film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. She was last featured in the 2016 release of Ki and Ka in a guest appearance.
