Recently at Subhash Ghai's wife Rehana's birthday party, yesteryear actress Jaya Bachchan lost her temper when a reporter addressed her daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Aishwarya.

Aishwarya, Jaya, Shah Rukh Khan, Rishi Kapoor and several other members from the film industry attended Rehana's grand birthday bash on Thursday.

The incident took place at around 10.30pm, when Jaya and Aishwarya made their entry at the birthday party. Photographers called out both the actresses' names, asking them to pose for the camera.

The shutterbugs called out Aishwarya, which miffed Jaya to such an extent that she shouted at the photographers, The Times of India reported.

She turned around and asked the photographers: "Kya Aishwarya Aishwarya bula rahe ho, tumhare class mein padhti thi kya? (Why are you calling her Aishwarya? Was she your classmate?)

The photographers were quite shocked by Jaya's comments. However, Aishwarya did not react to the situation and told her mother-in-law to enter the party area.

"What else does one call her? Sometime ago, Abhishek Bachchan too had screamed at us for referring to his wife as Ash telling us that her name is Aishwarya and not Ash. Do they expect us to call her Mrs. Bachchan?" a photographer present at the venue told Mumbai Mirror.

Last month, during at press conference for Prestige, Abhishek had urged a reporter not to refer to his wife as "Aish" and corrected him, saying the name is "Aishwarya".
