This power couple has always been well respected by the film fraternity and us fans as well. Both are exceptional actors and when they got married the country went crazy! Celebrating 46 years of their wedding, Amitabh said on Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 and also on his own blog that he updates every night before sleeping.
He wrote: "Marriage had been decided among us,.. nothing to be exaggerated or celebrated with any aplomb... just the two families and... done .. off to London, my first trip ever and hers too .. 'Zanjeer' a success and a promise that if it did well we would all - a gang of our friends - would go on a holiday to London ! (sic)" he wrote.
For the trip to London, something both really wanted, Big B's father and poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan asked him who all were taking that trip. But when he took Jaya's name, his father gave him an ultimatum that if he wants to travel with her, then he would have to get married first. .That is how the couple got married the very next day.
"Pandit and family informed .. next day all set .. flight at night .. marriage to finish before the flight (sic)," the actor wrote in the blog post.
Rewinding a bit, Amitabh shared: "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 insists he would drive me to the wedding... the substitute for the tradition horse... Waiting all set at Mangal, the name of the house on rent on the 7th road JVPD Scheme... and it begins to drizzle... neighbours rush out to me... leave for the wedding now... the rain is a good omen... off I went... wedding over in a few hours... done... Mr and Mrs proclaimed...over!"
