Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan celebrated their 46 years of union in June this year. Even after nearly five decades of being together the couple still appears to be so much in love. They are often spotted pulling each other’s legs on events and talk shows. A video of one such incident has gone viral in which Jaya is seen calling Amitabh her third kid.
The video is around 35 years old, when Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan were still kids. After her wedding to actor Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya took a backseat when it came to her career. She was taking care of their kids, while Amitabh continued to do films. During an interveiw with BBC, when Jaya was asked about her career and when is she going to make her comeback to movies, she teased the host and her husband and said, “I have to raise three kids (hinting at Abhishek, Shweta and Amitabh Bachchan).”
Big B clarified that the third kid Jaya is talking about is him.

In the video, Jaya and Amitabh are seen discussing Indian cinema, their kids and musical tours they used to do in the 80s. The actor also discussed how videos of the films can cause a real threat to cinemas. Videos had recently gotten popular in those days and in the video Amitabh was talking about how the government should take steps to prevent piracy and save the theatres.
The Pink actor also expressed his guilt on not being able to spent time with his kids because of being busy with films. He said, “It’s embarrassing that I haven’t been able to give my kids the time I want to. This age are very formative.” However Jaya Bachchan defended him and said, “I see Amit spends a lot of time with the kids which is even reflective in their behaviours because most of their mannerisms seem to be influenced by their father.”
Amitabh Bachchan turned 77 on Friday. The actor received best wishes from the entire nation. Hundreds of fans gathered outside his house to meet the megastar and wish him in person. The actor celebrated his birthday with his wife Jaya, son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda and granddaughter Aaradhya.
