It’s been 44 years since Big-B, Jaya Bachchan’s ‘Silsila’ has been going strong…
On June 3, 1973, the Shehenshah of Bollywood got his Begum when the ‘angry young man’ Amitabh Bachchan tied the knots with the very talented Jaya Bhaduri. The rest as they say is history.
On the occasion of their 44th marriage anniversary, Big B took to social media to recollect the memory of the Big day and said that he is “filled with love.”
“June 3, 1973 .. 44 years of marriage .. thank you all for the wishes you send .. grateful and filled with love,” he tweeted.
The Piku actor even took to his blog to express, “and as I set out from Mangal a rented house of mine in JVPD scheme, 7th Road .. in my newly acquired second hand Pontiac Sports, 2 door, with Ma and Babuji with me .. my driver Nagesh, now passed away, insisting on driving me to an apartment of Jaya’s family friend at Malabar Hill .. on the 3rd of June 1973, a few drops of rain began to fall .. our neighbour ran out of their house and excitedly screamed to us .. hurry to the wedding, its raining, a good omen. …Its been 44 years since ..”
The first couple of Bollywood starred together in iconic movies like Silsila, Abhiman, Chupke Chupke, Mili and more.
