Earlier in an interview, Jaya Bachchan had opened up on her love story with hubby Amitabh and said, "I was introduced to him on the sets of Guddi. I was impressed by him and somewhat in awe as he was Harivanshrai Bachchan's son. I felt he was different, though people laughed at me when I said that. I expressed my feelings and said he's going to make it big, even though I was aware he wasn't the usual stereotype hero. I fell in love with him very soon."
Amitabh had also talked about his bond with wife Jaya in a throwback interview with Filmfare magazine and said, "As busy as we get, we need to be reminded that we - my wife Jaya and I - are still sweethearts. In that sense, it makes me stop and realise how wonderful she makes me feel."
Further on being asked if his love for Jaya has changed over the years, the megastar had replied, "Ah, love! It hasn't changed over the 41 plus years I have spent with Jaya. No! Nothing's changed. Because it manifests itself into family, children, grandchildren."
