Did you know that Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan got hitched for a holiday trip to London? – Eagles Vine

Amitabh Bachchan is celebrating 48 years of togetherness with his wife Jaya Bachchan today. While they remain one of the power couples we have in Bollywood, there is a secret behind their 48 years of marriage and not many know about it.

Did you know that Big B and Jaya got hitched for a holiday trip to London? Yes, you read that absolutely right! After Mr Bachchan’s film, ‘Zanjeer’ became a big hit. The couple, who had fallen in love with each other on the set, had decided that they would take a trip to London if the movie does well.

However, when they sought permission from their respective families as it was their first trip abroad, Big B’s father Harivansh Rai Bachchan asked the superstar if Jaya would be joining him too. When the actor replied in affirmation, his father told them they have to get married first if they wish to go on a vacation together.

The couple obliged and got hitched before they jetted off to their first trip to London, which officially then became their honeymoon trip. After their trip, there were some scandalous reports being published about Jaya who was a bigger star than Big B at that time. The couple then had no choice but to come out in public and announce their marriage.

Amitabh and Jaya became parents to their kids – Shweta and Abhishek Bachchan and are today proud grandparents to their grandkids – Aaradhya, Navya and Agastya.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Jaya has been away from the movies and has been concentrating on her work in politics. Amitabh Bachchan, on the other hand, has some very interesting projects in his hands.

He will next be seen in Rumy Jaafri’s ‘Chehre’ co-starring Emraan Hashmi in lead role. The release of the movie was postponed owing to the pandemic. He also has Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’ co-starring Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy. Apart from this, he also has Nagraj Manjule’s ‘Jhund’ and Vikas Bahl’s ‘Goodbye’ which also stars Neena Gupta, Rashmika Mandanna and Pavail Gulati.
