Amitabh Bachchan super hit films with Jaya Bachchan
WRITTEN BY Aditi Shrivastava
The first time Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan shared the screen was in the 1972 film Bansi Birju. It was a romantic film directed by Prakash Verma.
For her work, Jaya won the Filmfare Best Actress Award, and the film was a box office success. This marked her second movie with Amitabh.
The film managed to gain a cult following despite performing poorly at the Box office. The love triangle between Jay, Amitabh and Rekha was well received by the audience slowly & steadily.
The dialogues of Zanjeer are still one of the favorites of the fans of Amitabh but, many less know that following the massive success of the film the actors tied knot in real life.
The plot of this romance drama centers around a gloomy, introverted man falling in love with a lively young woman, and later discovers she has cancer.
By that time, Amitabh and Jaya had been married for two years. You might be surprised to learn that during the filming of Sholay, Jaya Bachchan was pregnant.
This film is known for Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan's comic performance, and it was released the same year as the all-time hit Sholay.
It's a 1972 Bollywood romantic picture that didn't do well at the box office, but the filmmakers referred to the couple as
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Rahul, the adopted older son of a wealthy couple, is ousted from the family when he marries a middle-class woman. Amitabh and Jaya play the role of Shahrukh’s parents.
