If we Google relationship, we'll get plethora of results on how to make it a long-lasting and successful one. But relationship advices aren't one-size-fits-all and it is only over the time that a couple figures out what's best for them and how can they move forward. If a couple has tasted the salt in their relationship and yet have focussed on the sweetness that it brews, that is what makes their bond a special one. Mostly it is the little things in their life that makes a relationship strong. Some couples have proved that commitment and compatibility are the pillars that help a relationship last long when everything else fails.

And without a shadow of a doubt, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan make it to the list of long-lasting couples, who have swum together against the tides to make it to the shore. It was in 1973 when the Angry Man of Bollywood, Amitabh had broken the hearts of millions of girls and had married his ladylove, Jaya Bhaduri in chat mangni, pat vyaah. Amitabh and Jaya's married life is blessed with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham moments and they've been living their 'happily ever after' with their daughter and son, Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan, son-in-law and daughter-in-law, Nikhil Nanda and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and grandchildren, Navya Naveli Nanda, Agastya Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan.
It has been 47 years since Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri's marriage and we still can't get over the simplicity and love that their wedding pictures exude. On their every anniversary, we eagerly wait for Mr Bachchan to delight their fans with a glimpse from their wedding archive. Scrolling through the social media, we got our hands on a couple of unseen pictures of Mr and Mrs Bachchan's wedding. The Bengali beauty had looked mesmerising in her red bridal ensemble while the handsome tall man had made our hearts skip a beat in a cream-coloured sherwani. Amitabh and Jaya in one frame are always a sight to behold but on their wedding, they stolen our hearts like never!

It was on June 3, 2019, when Amitabh Bachchan, to mark his 46th wedding anniversary with Jaya Bachchan, had revealed an interesting story of the unusual circumstances and their chat mangni pat vyaah in his blog post. Co-stars of several films including Chupke Chupke, Abhimaan, Bansi Birju, Sholay and many more, Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan had wanted to go on a trip to London to celebrate the success of their film, Zanjeer along with their other friends. But Big B’s father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan had told him that he could go only with Jaya after the two get married. Amitabh and Jaya were dating at that time.
Reminiscing the incident of how the marriage unfolded between the couple back in 1973, Amitabh Bachchan had written on his blog, “I lived on the 7th Road of this society.. on a rented house.. marriage had been decided among us.. nothing to be exaggerated or celebrated with any aplomb.. just the two families and.. done.. off to London, my first trip ever and hers too.. Zanjeer a success and a promise that if it did well we would all - a gang of our friends - would go on a holiday to London! Seeking or rather informing parents that we were a group of friends going to England .. who all are going came the query from Babuji .. names disclosed .. Jaya is also going with you.. you both are alone.. yes.. if you have to go marry and go.. ok.. pandit and family informed.. next day all set.. flight at night.. marriage to finish before the flight.”
Recalling how everyone had prepped up in full swing for Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan’s ‘next day’ marriage as the wedding rituals had to be completed before their flight to London on the same night, Big B had continued, “I dress up in formal marriage Indian.. get into my car and want to drive to Malabar Hill where her friends lived and where the ceremony was to be done.. my driver Nagesh, pushes me out and insist he would drive me to the wedding.. the substitute for the tradition horse.. Waiting all set at Mangal, the name of the house on rent on the 7th road JVPD Scheme.. and it begins to drizzle.. neighbours rush out to me.. leave for the wedding now.. the rain is a good omen.. off I went.. wedding over in a few hours.. done.. Mr and Mrs proclaimed.. over!!” (Also Read: Jaya Bachchan's Reaction When Amitabh Bachchan Was Declared 'Clinically Dead' After Coolie Accident)
