Something so mundane and routine, but when it is done by A-List celebs of the film frat, it IS a big deal. Jaya Bachchan was first seen wearing this breathtaking magenta saree in 2010 at the Screen Awards, which was seen draped by Aishwarya at Durga Puja celebrations the following year. 3 years later, Jaya Bachchan wore the same dress again, at the Screen Awards 2014! This just makes them so relatable, and as normal as us all–when it comes to family matters and relationships! How many times do we see celebs who are related to each other sharing their 'drobe staples, after all?

2. This adorable moment when Aishwarya was caught on camera resting her head on her mother-in-law's shoulder, during an award show.

Awww! It happened during the Stardust awards last year. But even more worth mentioning, is the story behind this uber-precious moment caught on camera. The former Miss World was to receive an award for her comeback film, Sarbjit .Since Abhishek ws hosting the award ceremony, Aishwarya was anticipating him to announce her name, but when the same didn't happen, a dejected and morose Aishwarya rested her head on mom-in-law Jayaji's shoulder saying—"Aww he didn't announce it..." Now isn't that just adorably cute?

3. That time when Jaya Bachchan reprimanded a journo for being impolite while addressing Aishwarya.

There have been countless cases where the "hot-headed" celebrity has felt harassed by the journos, either by inappropriate and out-of-context questions, or due to invasion of her private space. Remember that time during filmmaker Subhash Ghai's party, when she had snapped back at a reporter for calling her daughter-in-law Aishwarya, by the name "Ash" instead of her full name, calling it utterly disrespectful.

"Aishwarya kya hota hai? Is she your school friend?" Talk about a protective mother-in-law!

4. When Jaya Bachchan was all-praises for Aishwarya on her parenting skills.

Shortly after Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's daughter, Aaradhya was born, Jaya Bachchan publicly complimented her beloved daughter-in-law's skills as a mother and called her a "hands-on mom". Jaya Bachchan went all out in praising Aishwarya's exceptional care and concern as a mother who would be wary of leaving her child with the maids even for a bit. She shared an anecdote when she jokingly teased Aishwarya saying, "Sometimes I tease Aishwarya and I say Aaradhya is a very lucky girl because can you imagine having a nurse like Miss World Aishwarya?!" That just shows how much the otherwise stern-looking Jaya Bachchan respects and loves her daughter-in-law.

Well, we wouldn't disagree with her for even a bit!

5. Jaya Bachchan had a very high opinion of Aishwarya as a person, even before she was married to Abhishek.

The intimate and close relationship shared between Jaya Bachchan and Aishwarya is pretty evident by now. But, turns out that mother-in-law Jaya, had a high opinion of her future daughter-in-law Aishwarya even before she actually became a part of the family! Yes, as per her revelations on Karan Johar's popular chat show Koffee With Karan, Jaya Bachchan was ready to welcome Aishwarya with anything but open arms—

"She is lovely. I love her. I have always loved her. I have never ever seen her push herself whenever we are all together. I like that quality of hers to stand behind. She is quiet. She listens and she is taking it all in. And another beautiful thing is that she has fitted in so well in the family. She knows who are our good friends."
