Today is a big day! Not because IIFA 2010 commences today but also because it"s been 37 years since the day, Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan got married. The most admired couple of Bollywood got married on June 3 back in 1973.
The legendary couple has been seen together in many movies like Ek Nazar, Chupke Chupke, Zanjeer, Abhiman and more recently K3G. Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan have been as successful a couple in reel life as they are in real life.
A year back, on a TV show, Jaya Bachchan had said that she had first seen Amit-ji at an institute and liked his personality. She had also argued with her friends who disagreed with her then.
After Zanjeer was released in May 1973 and became an instant hit, Jaya and Amit-ji (not married then) decided to go for a vacation to London. However, Amit-ji"s parents objected to it as they were not married and the couple decided to tie the knot. Amitabh asked her parents for her hand, and the couple got married according to Bengali rites in June, 1973. The couple has been happily married since then.
Abhishek Bachchan was the first to announce it to the world via his tweet that his parents would celebrate their 37th wedding anniversary today. Since then wishes are pouring in for the couple on Amit-ji"s Twitter account.
Amidst receiving the best wishes, Amit-ji is busy spending his wedding anniversary in the wild – at Gir.
We at Oneindia wish the evergreen couple many more years of marital bliss!
