The One You Said Will Rule The Film World One Day; Jaya Got Angry When Bachchan Was Insulted

Actor Amitabh Bachchan is an outstanding actor who earned the nickname Angry Young Man in Indian cinema. Amitabh, who rose to superstardom in the 70s and 80s, remains one of the faces of Indian cinema even today as Big B. Amitabh's wife is Jaya Bachchan, a former actress, and MP. Dubbed a model family, Big B's family comes together at many public events. Jaya Bachchan has given great support to Bachchan's career. Many similar incidents have happened in the past. Rajesh Khanna, a superstar from the 1970s, was yelled at by Jaya Bachchan. His ridicule of Bachchan infuriated Jaya. Bachchan and Jaya were close friends at the time. Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Bachchan were acting in the 1972 film Bavaria.

 
It was a crisis period for Bachchan in the film industry. Bachchan, a newcomer, was looking forward to a career break. Bachchan used to see Jaya while the movie was being shot. Rajesh Khanna never likes this. He believed that Bachchan's career in film is over. Therefore, Jaya is advised by Rajesh Khanna to ignore him. When Jaya Bachchan heard this, she became furious. He was told by Jaya Bachchan that the person you just mentioned will someday rule the film industry.
 
As Jaya Bachchan predicted, it happened later. Bachchan received a break in his career with the 1975 release of the movie Deewar. Originally, Rajesh Khanna was going to play the lead in that movie. Later, however, the filmmakers chose to make Amitabh Bachchan the protagonist. After Deewar, Bachchan did not have to look back on his career. The actor received a string of successful films. The movie Deewar was directed by Yash Chopra and written by Salim Javed. Bachchan and Jaya got married in 1973. Both of them, who have been married for 49 years, are known as the model couple of Bollywood.
