Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan celebrated their 38th marriage anniversary Friday and Big B shared the memories of his wedding day and honeymoon.
“It’s past midnight right now… its the 3rd of June… and its our anniversary… 38 years since 1973 … !! Still remember the speed with which everything happened on that day. It was a quick decision. Marriages generally are,” Big B posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com Friday.
“And before long I was heading across to a common friend’s place with my family for a simple Bengali wedding ceremony. Not many people at all. Just family and a couple of personal friends. There was a gentle quiver in the skies and a few drops of rain fell just before setting off.
“Some of the neighbours exclaimed that it was a good omen – the Gods send their greetings they said – and we were off !” he added.
The two have worked together in movies like “Abhimaan”, “Chupke Chupke” and “Zanjeer” and after their quick wedding they went to London for their honeymoon.
“And before long off on a plane to London, for the very first time. In fact, for me and for Jaya too, the very first time out of the country – minus my short visit to Nepal in the mid 50′s,” he posted.
“I remember being invited by Rajesh Khanna and his wife Dimple, also recently married to the hotel they were staying in for dinner and a celebration, and some of us, so taken up by the city, going out to the balcony of his suite and playing L O N D O N … LONDON !! A very innovative little game that we had all played when we were kids,” he added.
