Veteran actor turned politician Jaya Bachchan has turned 72 this Thursday. On her birthday fans and family members of the actress have filled social media with happy birthday wishes even amid the ongoing Coronavirus crisis in the country. On the actress's birthday, it is once again a good time to look back into the insight Amitabh Bachchan shared into their marriage. While most fans know about the controversies surrounding Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan concerning Rekha not many know about their initial romance.
Amitabh Bachchan took to this blog in 2019 to share an insight into the same. Mr. Bachchan revealed that the two started dating in 1973. At some point, the couple planned a trip to London but Amitabh's father and poet Harivanshrai Bachchan were against the idea. Harivanshrai Bachchan ordered Amitabh to either get married or scrap the idea of the London trip.
So as if fate were to have it this way the couple got married the very next day. Taking to his blog Amitabh Bachchan wrote, "Seeking or rather informing parents that we were a group of friends going to England .. who all are going came the query from Babuji .. names disclosed .. Jaya is also going with you .. you both are alone .. yes .. if you have to go marry and go."
"I dress up in formal marriage Indian .. get into my car and want to drive to Malabar Hill where her friends lived and where the ceremony was to be done .. my driver Nagesh, pushes me out and insist he would drive me to the wedding .. the substitute for the tradition horse... off I went .. wedding over in a few hours .. done .. Mr and Mrs proclaimed .. over !!,” he added.
