Seldom do we come across Bollywood couples who age as gracefully as Amitabh Bachchan and his significant other, veteran actress Jaya Bachchan have. From the real to reel, the love between the B-town power couple has only blossomed in almost five decades of their marriage.

On the occasion of their 47th wedding anniversary, the megastar took to social media to share a story with his 17.6 million Instagram followers and 42.5 million Twitter followers. The thespian talked about the blockbuster hit ‘Zanjeer’, in which he starred opposite Jaya. The film was released in 1973 and the Big B got hitched to Jaya, a month after it hit the screens.

Sharing an interesting anecdote from the yesteryears, Bachchan Sr said that he, along with a few friends, wanted to go to London to celebrate the success of ‘Zanjeer’. That was when his daddy, Harivanshrai Bachchan asked, ‘who are 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 .. !!” wrote the 77-year-old. The rest, as they say, is history.

Along with the anecdote, the ‘Zanjeer’ star also shared a collage of pictures which shows him and wife Jaya at the wedding. As soon as the megastar shared the story on social media, wishes started pouring in from his fans, congratulating the couple on their 47th wedding anniversary.
