Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan Celebrating their 42nd Wedding Anniversary
Currently enjoying the success of his recent blockbuster ‘Piku’, our all-time favorite superstar Amitabh Bachchan celebrates 42 years of togetherness with wife Jaya Bachchan. The power couple have been together strong and happy for a long time now. They are also known as the cutest couple of bollywood majorly because of their massive height difference. The couple got married on 3rd June, 1973, after co-starring in Prakash Mehra’s ‘Zanjeer’. Their wedding was a quiet affair which was witnessed by only a handful of close people from the industry and family. Big B posted his nostalgic thoughts on his blog today in which he recalled their journey which began when they decided to be together and eventually their love affair resulted in getting married in a traditional Bengali ceremony. He also recalls details of his drive from his rented apartment to Jaya’s friend’s house, being driven by his driver Nagesh who refused to let his brother do the honors. After the quick and an intimate ceremony, the couple soon left to go to UK for their honeymoon. The star couple has two children – Abhishek and Shweta.
Today, after 42 years of marriage, the 72-year old actor still feels as close to his wife like the day when they got married. Although Jaya Bachchan is on a trip abroad for work reasons today, that doesn’t stop the star couple from reminiscing their wedding day. Big B even tweeted his heartfelt gratitude to all his fans who wished him today by writing – ‘To them that give me their wishes for the Anniversary, my sincere gratitude and love… 42 years of marriage’. His fans, whom he fondly refers to as ‘extended family’ (EF), created a hashtag trend of #HappyAnniversaryABJB on twitter to make his day special. During their younger days Amitabh Bachchan as well as Jaya Bachchan has been super hit stars. They both have had impeccable acting skills to big huge hearts. No wonder, they stand as the power couple in the entire bollywood today. Hailing from a successful background of only hits, the couple have always kept their personal lives under the wraps. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan have been seen together in many more successful movies such as ‘Abhimaan’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, ‘Mili’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Chupke Chupke’ and ‘Bansi Birju’. Whether on-screen or off-screen, the duo makes a lovely couple and compliments each other perfectly.
It is not that the couple’s journey through these 42 years has been all roses. They too went through a rocky road at some point of their lives. There have been several shocking and heartbreaking controversies and rumors revolving around them too. However, surpassing all of those problems, they have evolved from it to be stronger, closer and even more in love with each other than ever. Their togetherness is an epitome of the kind of love and faith in marriage that the younger generation lacks today. We extend our most heartfelt wishes to the loving couple on their special day. #HappyAnniversaryABJB
