Jaya Bachchan celebrates 59th b'day

B'WOOD'S CLASSIC: Jaya Bachchan has left an everlasting impression on the minds of movie buffs.
Wife of superstar Amitabh Bachchan and mother of emerging star Abhishek, veteran actress Jaya Bachchan, who turned 59 this Monday, continues to stand on her own stead.

She's left an everlasting impression on the minds of Indian movie buffs with her performances in films like Guddi, Mili, Abhimaan, Koshish, Anamika, Piya Ka Ghar and Silsila.

While staying away from the silver screen, she produced popular television serial Dekh Bhai Dekh. Jaya made a grand comeback to movies after a gap of 18 years in the acclaimed Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa in 1998.

In 2000, she played mother to Karisma Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan in Fiza and received the Filmfare award for best supporting actress.

Several offers came her way but she chose to sign Karan Johar's family saga Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Kal Ho Naa Ho.

Jaya will next be seen in Pradeep Sarkar's Laaga Chunari Mein Daag releasing later this year. She will be seen for the first time with son Abhishek in the film, which also stars Rani Mukerji and Konkona Sen Sharma.
