Bollywood is always abuzz with gossip, some true and others plain spun. The latest piece of 'News' that caught everyone's attention was the one that said Jaya Bachchan called 'Happy New Year' the most nonsensical film she has seen in recent times.

So whose words would you believe, journalists or Bollywood's megastars? Decide for yourself.
Big B says 'Wrong Reportage'
Amitabh Bachchan, who happens to be very active through social media didn't spare a chance to let his fans know the truth. Here he directs us to an article that more or less decodes the entire incident and gives us a sneak peek into what wife Jaya Bachchan actually said. This article titled 'The twists, turns and half truths that maketh controversy' gives us a gist into the selfish world of media journalism that adjusts situations to grab eyeballs, even if they are demeaning.
SRK calls it 'Crappy News'
An outraged Shahrukh Khan took to Twitter to express his disappointment with this incident. In case you're mistaken, it was not Jaya's words, but this article that angered him. This article contains every part of the incident; twisted of course, some parts that may have never existed in the first place. This article is a part of a leading news firm and reads as a gossip filled tale.
