Superstar Amitabh Bachchan got married to Jaya Bahadhuri this day 42 years back, and the Bollywood most popular couple are celebrating their marriage anniversary today. Jaya and Amitabh have acted in many popular films such as the evergreen Abhimaan, Sholay, Chupke Chupke, Silsila amongst others. They had a love marriage in 1973, and Big B took this occasion to tweet a very old photograph of them together.
It’s reported that at a time in his career, none of the popular heroines wished to work with him as all of his films were flops. It was at this time that Jaya played the lead role in the super hit Zanjeer, which was the turning point of Amitabh’s career as established him as the original angry young man of Indian cinema.
