Appearing on Starry Nights 2.oh!, Amitabh Bachchan opened up about how Gauri Shinde and his wife didn’t like his films and even the way he dressed.

Amitabh Bachchan is genuinely one of the most respected and influential actors in the Bollywood film industry. Also, he has received significant recognition as the greatest actor of the century with more than 190 films and numerous awards including 4 National Film Awards and 15 Filmfare Awards during his career spanning nearly 50 years.

Also during the show, director Balki shared an exciting story about his directorial Shamitabh. Balki recalled when he went to Amitabh’s birthday party without preparing a gift and came up with a brilliant idea. He whispered the story of Shamitabh to Amitabh, and the film was the birthday present for the actor.

Also, sharing about his love story with his wife Jaya Bachchan, Amitabh said that their decision to get married appeared during the film Zanjeer's shooting. At that time, the production crew decided that they would go to London for a vacation if the film were a big hit. Amitabh’s father asked him who he was going with and when he knew it was Jaya, he told Amitabh that he mustn’t go to London without marrying Jaya. Amitabh then agreed and later the couple got married to each other before they went to London. What a lovely story!

Amitabh is recently busy with his first Telugu film titled Uyarntha Manithan, which also featured Ramya Krishnan and SJ Suryah in the lead roles. He used to work with director Balki for several films such as Shamitabh, Cheeni Kum or Paa and Ki and Ka.
