Jaya Bachchan's 70th birthday

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Jaya Bachchan celebrated her 70th birthday on Monday. It was the occasion for a family celebration with hubby Amitabh, children Abhishek and Shweta Bachchan Nanda in attendance as well as a few close friends from the film and fashion industry. Amitabh posted two pictures on Twitter shortly after the cosy party, titling them ‘The progress report then…and now’ – one a black-and-white image of Jaya holding her infant child from the 1970s and another one from the party on Monday with grown-up children Abhishek and Shweta encircling her in a warm embrace. Even as Jaya and Amitabh approach the golden 50th anniversary of their marriage, they have naturally shared many ups and downs together which are practically open knowledge: from Amitabh’s mind-boggling success in the film industry; to his near-fatal accident on the sets of ‘Coolie’; Jaya’s hubby’s unfavourable encounter with politics; the setting up of their entertainment company ABCL as well as its bankruptcy some years later; the resurrection of Amitabh’s career at age 58 on television with Kaun Banega Crorepati and the spate of films that followed; as well as Amitabh’s run-ins with bad healthy and infirmity, the latter which is the fate of humans universally. No doubt Jaya has fought many battles of her own as well, ones which have not been in the media spotlight. Yet if there is one thing that she managed to do, it is to keep her family united together through it all. And if, today, judging from their cosy unity, her two children respect and revere her, then let it be said that having the love of one’s family is probably the greatest treasure in the world and one that Jaya richly deserves.
