Teji Bachchan, Amitabh, Dr Harivanshrai Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan


Caring son.
Protective brother.
Understanding husband.
Affectionate father.

You have seen Amitabh Bachchan in all these roles in his films. In real life, he is much the same -- a simple, down-to-earth man who values his family. Here we see Amitabh's mother Teji, father Harivansh Rai Bachchan and wife Jaya.

When they were dating, apparently Jaya Bhaduri and Amitabh had a pact: if Prakash Mehra's Zanjeer (in which they worked together) clicked, they would holiday in London. The film was a huge success.

But Bachchan's parents insisted the couple get married first. So the two were married June 2, 1973, followed by an extended honeymoon in London.
