“Jaya said, “People will find it objectionable coming from me but physical attraction and compatibility are also very important. In our times we couldn`t experiment but today the generation does and why shouldn`t they? Because that also is responsible for a long-lasting relationship. If there isn`t a physical relationship it`s not going to last very long. You can`t be lasting on love and fresh air and adjustment, I feel. It`s very very important.”

“Sometimes it’s a pity but a lot of the younger lot, of course, we never could, we couldn’t even think about it but the younger generation even after me, Shweta’s generation, Navya’s is a different ballgame, but they would feel guilty going through that experience and I think it’s very wrong. It’s okay and then you do things on the sly. If you had a physical relationship and you feel that still, my relationship otherwise not worked out you can be nice about it,” the veteran actor added.

Giving advice to the younger generation, the ‘Silsila’ actor said, “I’m looking at it very clinically. Since there’s a lack of that emotion, the romance today…I think you should marry your best friend. You should have a good friend, you should discuss and say, ‘Maybe I’d like to have a child with you because I like you, I think you’re nice, so let`s get married because that’s what society’s saying’. I have no problem if you have a child without a marriage also, I really don’t have a problem.

“Jaya talked about the topic ‘Modern Love: Romance and Regrets’ on the podcast along with her elder daughter Shweta Bachchan.

Meanwhile, on the film front, Jaya will be next seen in director Karan Johar’s upcoming film ‘Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’ alongside Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Shabana Azmi and Dharmendra in the lead roles.
