Recently at an event Jaya Bachchan lashed out on the film 'Happy New Year' terming it as the most nonsensical film she has seen in recent times. She went on to say that the film's sole purpose was to make business and that it lacks the art of cinema.

Before matters got worse, a humbled Amitabh Bachchan chose to apologize to Shahrukh Khan on his wife's behalf.
