Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri (now Bachchan) got married in a traditional Hindu ceremony on June 3, 1973. Sharing the reason behind the impromptu ceremony, Amitabh had once said on Instagram, “Had decided if Zanjeer would succeed, we would along with a few friends go to London for the first time .. My Father asked who you going with? When I told him who, he said you must marry her before you go .. else you don’t go .. So .. I obeyed!”

This is Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan's picture from their honeymoon in London. It was supposed to be a fun trip post the success of Zanjeer but turned out to be a honeymoon. It was shared by Shweta Bachchan on Instagram few years ago. 

The couple was blessed with two kids, daughter Shweta born in March, 1974 and Abhishek in February, 1976. While Abhishek followed the footsteps of his parents and became an actor, Shweta is a writer and entrepreneur. 


Shweta had once shared this candid picture of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan and called them "one in a lifetime kind of people". They worked in several films like Guddi, Silsila, Zanjeer, Sholay and Abhimaan in their younger days and again became a hit pair with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.

During one of the episodes of Kaun Banega Crorepati, Amitabh Bachchan had revealed why he fell for Jaya. He said, "Apni patni se humne biyaha ek iss wajah se kiya tha ki unke kes bohot lambe the (One of the reasons I married my wife was because she had long hair).”
