Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan are the number one B-town power couple. But is their relationship actually as ideal as it looks like? Rumors have it that their marriage went through a rough patch and there was a time when Jaya wanted to part ways with Big B. She did file for divorce once!
Here are a few reasons why Jaya wanted to split with her beloved husband!
Apparently, Amitabh Bachchan was involved in extramarital affairs back in the day. This, of course, was problematic for Jaya.
Amitabh and Jaya finally tied the knot in 1973. However, Amitabh’s marriage did not affect his fame. In fact, he continued to gain more and more popularity among the ladies!
No time for family
Apparently, Big B found it hard to spare time for his kids and wife. His career (and alleged extramarital affairs) kept him too busy. Jaya had to manage everything on her own while trying her best to keep her children away from the rumors.
At one point of time, rumors about Amitabh and Rekha’s secret marriage were doing rounds in Bollywood and among the media.
Jaya’s career suffered
It is believed that Jaya’s Bollywood career suffered after her marriage with Amitabh.
Maintaining public image
Apparently, Big B was obsessed with his public image back then. He knew that a divorce could hamper his image overnight. Hence, he convinced Jaya to stay in order to avoid rumors and gossip.
Is there any truth to these rumors? What do you think?
