Bollywood superstar couple Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan are celebrating forty-two years of wedded bliss.
Amitabh Bachchan got married to Jaya Bachchan on June 3, 1973. They got married after working together in Prakash Mehra’s “Zanjeer”. Their wedding was a private one with only a few close friends and family members in attendance.
Bachchan posted, “Self-wishes are the order of the day… They serve both ways. They convey to you the Ef, of my marriage anniversary… And they inform the wife that she has not been forgotten even though she is not in the country at this moment. After 42 years it all seems so very close and immediate … The decision to be together… The information to the elders… Parents first and then .. Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, my first director and then Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Jaya’s first director, and ours for many films thereafter.“
Bachchan and Jaya worked together in films like Bansi Birju, Abhimaan, Chupke Chupke, Mili, Sholay and Silsila and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
Their union is blessed with two children Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan.
