Amitabh Bachchan reminisces his wedding with Jaya on their 42nd anniversary


The most adorable couple of Bollywood - Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary on June 3, 2015. On the occasion, the megastar mentioned their special day on his daily blog.

Reminiscing the day of his wedding, Big B wrote, “The hurried simple preparations .. the ceremony in Bengali tradition .. the drive from my rented place to the apartment of a dear friend of Jaya's family .. my driver Nagesh insisting on driving me , sehra bound, to the site, not permitting my brother to do the honours .. the gentle drops of rain that began to fall just before .. the neighbours rushing to our place on seeing this and telling us to depart for the wedding, as the rain was a wonderful omen of auspiciousness .. and finally after it was all over, the entrance of the bride into our home and the departure soon after to London with some dear friends for a honeymoon .. our very first visit to the UK .."

However, his wife and parliamentarian Jaya was not beside him on the day as she was abroad. The actor said they still feel very close to each other. “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,” the ‘Piku’ actor wrote in his blog.

The star couple Amitabh and Jaya have worked together in several films including ‘Sholay’, Chupke Chupke’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Mili’, ‘Abhimaan’ and more as young actors, and Karan Johar’s ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ saw them play parents to Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan.

After working for Prakash Mehra’s ‘Zanjeer’ both decided to tie the knot. Without much pompousness, Amitabh and Jaya got married on June 3, 1973, in presence of close friends and family members. They have two children – daughter Shweta, who is married to a Delhi-based entrepreneur Nikhil Nanda, and son Abhishek who is married to former Miss World and actress Aishwarya Rai.

The senior Bachchan also thanked his Twitter followers on the occasion, who have been pouring him with their wishes. He shared an old picture of him and Jaya and posted, “To them that give me their wishes for the Anniversary, my sincere gratitude and love .. 42 years of marriage.”

We also wish the couple a happy wedding anniversary and many more years of togetherness!
