The Golden couple of Bollywood is turning 43 today! Superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan were married in 1973 on this day and their marriage has stood the test of time. Amitabh met Jaya Bhaduri when he acoompanied director K. Abbas to Pune Film Institute! They instantly fell in love when they were introduced on the sets of 1971 movie Guddi!
Jaya Bhaduri was a superstar during this time and Amitabh Bachchan was still struggling as an actor. Jaya said in an interview, “I was introduced to him on the sets of Guddi. I was impressed by him and somewhat in awe as he was Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s son. I fell in love with him very soon.”
The love birds formed a great bond and many reports say that the then Superstar and Jaya’s close friend Rajesh Khanna warned her against this relationship, but love is blind! This did not change her decision!
They got married after Amitabh’s parents refused to let them go to London for the success celebrations of Zanjeer as they were an unmarried couple. Amitabh asked her to marry and she said yes! They left for London soon after!
Just like any other love story, their’s also had many ups and downs, but they stood by each other!
The couple have two children Sweta Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan! The Bachchan family has always been loved by their fans and now their family is picture perfect with the arrival of their grandaughter Aaradhya!
