When Jaya Bachchan couldn’t bear Rajesh Khanna hurling insults at Amitabh Bachchan
On June 3rd 1973, Bollywood witnessed its legendary star couple Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri tying the knot. Today the couple is celebrating their 47th year of this great union. Big B and Jaya make for a classic couple and everyone admires and loves them.
Reportedly there was a time when Jaya had stood up to Rajesh Khanna for insulting Big B on sets.
While everyone knows the heart-touching tale of how Jaya and Big B got married after ‘Zanjeer’, but there is another interesting story that showed how much Jaya loved Bachchan. Back in the day, when the couple was dating, Big B used to usually hang out on sets where Jaya would be shooting. It was this one-time that Ali Peter John had visited Jaya on the sets of her film, ‘Bawarchi’. John had seen Khanna throwing insults at Big B. “It was when Khanna called him manhoos or ill-fated that Jaya decided that she had enough,” states a report in DailyO.

Well, this did not go well for Khanna as Jaya could not take insults against her then-boyfriend and brush it off her shoulder. She had reportedly walked up to Khanna and told him that the whole world would witness where Bachchan will reach and where Khanna will be.
The rest is history as we all know that Amitabh Bachchan‘s stardom has not faded out one bit. The proof of that is in the sea of people who gather outside his home just to get a glimpse of him and in the success of his movies.
