Amitabh Bachchan shared an old pic with wife Jaya and also tweeted, “To them that give me their wishes for the Anniversary, my sincere gratitude and love .. 42 years of marriage.”
Amitabh Bachchan blogs saying, “Self wishes are the order of the day .. they serve both ways. They convey to you the Ef, of my marriage anniversary … and they inform the wife that she has not been forgotten even though she is not in the country at this moment.
After 42 years it all seems so very close and immediate .. the decision to be together .. the information to the elders .. parents first and then .. Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, my first director and then Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Jaya’s first director, and ours for many films thereafter…
The hurried simple preparations .. the ceremony in Bengali tradition .. the drive from my rented place to the apartment of a dear friend of Jaya’s family .. my driver Nagesh insisting on driving me , sehra bound, to the site, not permitting my brother to do the honours .. the gentle drops of rain that began to fall just before .. the neighbours rushing to our place on seeing this and telling us to depart for the wedding, as the rain was a wonderful omen of auspiciousness .. and finally after it was all over, the entrance of the bride into our home and the departure soon after to London with some dear friends for a honeymoon .. our very first visit to the UK….
Amitabh Bachchan’s post gave us a picture of how the marriage was arranged, how the ceremony took place and also what plans he had after the wedding.
