The pairing of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan is considered to be one of the most unique couples of Bollywood. The love between Amitabh-Jaya remains intact even after so many years of marriage and on many occasions both keep sharing pictures with each other. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan tied the knot on June 3, 1973.
Today is the 48th wedding anniversary of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan and like every year, the megastar shared a beautiful picture with wife Jaya. The picture shared by megastar Amitabh Bachchan with his Instagram handle was done during the wedding rounds. Jaya is wearing a red wedding dress and Big B is wearing an off-white sherwani.
Sharing the photo, Big B wrote, ‘Thank you for your prayers and congratulations on the wedding anniversary, June 3, 1973.’ Big B is commenting on this post from celebs to fans, congratulating him. As much as the personal life of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan is good, the films together were also a hit. Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh worked together for the first time in the film ‘Bansi Birju’.
After this, both of them worked together in films like ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Abhimaan’, ‘Chupke Chupke’, ‘Mili’, ‘Sholay’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’. The love story of Amitabh-Jaya is also quite interesting. Actually, Big B saw Jaya for the first time on the cover page of a magazine. Amitabh was very impressed after seeing Jaya on the magazine. Amitabh told that he always wanted a girl who is traditional from inside and modern from outside. Jaya was just like that. Because of this, Amitabh started liking Jaya in his heart.
It is said that Jaya Bachchan started liking Amitabh since college days. Amitabh had gone to Pune for his film Saat Hindustani and Jaya was studying there at that time. He liked Amitabh at first sight. The two first met on the sets of Guddi. Big B was earlier signed in this film, but later he was replaced.
Amitabh-Jaya may not have been able to pair in the film Guddi, but in reality the process of meeting of both of them had started. There were discussions about the love of Amitabh and Jaya in the newspapers. In the year 1973, Jaya’s father got a call from Amitabh and he said that you come to Mumbai and meet your daughter. Then Jaya told her heart to her father.
So on the other hand, Amitabh Bachchan wanted to go abroad with Jaya to spend a holiday, but father Harivansh Rai Bachchan had clearly said that he would have to marry Jaya first, only then both would be able to go together. After this, both of them took seven rounds with utmost simplicity and took each other’s hand.
The pairing of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan is a super hit and they have two children, Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan. Big B has also tweeted on Twitter on the special occasion of the anniversary. He wrote, ‘June 3, 1973… We express our gratitude to those who have congratulated Jaya and me on their marriage anniversary.’
