Break-ups and divorces in B-town have become common of late. However, here’s one couple who has been together for 43 long years of their lives and are giving us major relationship goals. Yes, we are talking about Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, who have been by each other’s side through thick and thin and today they complete 43 years of togetherness. Both were considered as the best actors of their times and it was their love for movies and passion for acting that got them together. However, it is trust that has kept their relationship going so strong till today. Read on to know some interesting tidbits about this IT couple of Bollywood:
Not many know that Amitabh first saw Jaya on the cover of a magazine. Yes, you read that right! Movies happened later. What caught Big B’s attention was Jaya’s beautiful eyes on that magazine cover. He always wanted a woman who was a perfect blend of traditionalism and a modern outlook, and he thought Jaya fit the bill.
Amitabh & Jaya’s romance began at Pune Film Institute in early 1970s where Jaya first saw Amitabh. For Jaya, it was love at first sight. After their little love stint on campus, it was later on the sets of the film ‘Guddi’ where Jaya was formally introduced to Amitabh again.
Trust, trust and trust! Jaya says, “I totally trust my husband and I know this industry. I have never been threatened or felt insecure about anything he did”. Amitabh, too, has never been bothered about rumors or gossips surrounding him. And perhaps, this is why the couple has never come out to clarify themselves.
Did you know? Amitabh and Jaya’s two beautiful children, Abhishek and Shweta are the best part of their relationship. Their kids are the main reason that their relationship has come this far! Recalling the time when Jaya was pregnant with her first child, she reveals, “It was during the making of Sholay. The entire unit took care of me. Harsh weather conditions and hectic shooting schedules used to exhaust me. But I can never forget how Amitabh, Hema, Dharmendra and others stood by me throughout the shooting of the film”.
Jaya Bachchan was a bigger star than Amitabh Bachchan when they met. However, even after they tied the knot, offers were pouring in for the actress. But the prospect of having a family and spending time with kids came across as a way more interesting option. But Big B had nothing to do with this decision of Jaya’s. In an interview, she revealed, “I didn’t even speak once to Amitabh about this while taking the decision. It was totally my decision to quit the film industry”.
