Bollywood actors Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan are celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary today. On the occasion, Big B took to his Instagram account and recalled how Zanjeer’s success led to their marriage.

Sharing a throwback picture of his wedding day, the actor wrote, “47 years .. today .. June 3, 1973 .. !! Had decided if Zanjeer would succeed, we would along with a few friends go to London for the first time .. My Father asked who you going with ? When i told him who , he said you must marry her before you go .. else you don’t go .. So .. I obeyed .. !!”

As soon as the actor shared the photo, celebrities shared wishes on the post. “Favourite couple ️Happy anniversary. Onek bhalobasha,” Bipasha Basu commented. Shamita Shetty, Esha Deol, Usha Jadhav and others also posted warm wishes.
