Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan are one of the most loved and respected couples in Bollywood. The couple, who will celebrate their 48th wedding anniversary in June, have been in the news repeatedly due to Big B’s affair with Rekha. But today we’re not talking about that love triangle – instead we have an adorable, love-filled video of Jaya and Amitabh.
Taken from a 1998 interview with Simi Garewal for her show, Rendezvous with Simi Garewal, the video shows the couple talking about their meeting and marriage. Scroll down below and check out some snippets of the conversation that took place around the time they celebrated their Silver Jubilee anniversary. Let us know if this left you as stunned as it left Big B.
In this clip from the 1998 talk show episode, Simi Garewal asks Jaya Bachchan how she knew she would marry Amitabh Bachchan when she first met him. To that, Jaya replied, “I didn’t know I would marry this man. But I was scared.
Shocking, right? Well, you’re not the only ones popping out of your mind – Amitabh Bachchan couldn’t believe the words that left his 25-year-old wife’s mouth, either. Reacting to this revelation, Amitji said, “Were you scared?” To which, Jaya responded with a simple and sweet yes.
Taking note of her words, Big B admitted that this was the first time she had said something like this since they had been together. Still not believing what he heard, the black actor asked her again if she was indeed “scared,” and Jaya and Simi burst out laughing.
Explaining why she was afraid of Mr Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan said he was the only one, among the people who could dictate things to her, that she would allow. Well, that some #couplegoals out there! And the expression of AB Sr is while winning our hearts.
