It was the late 1970’s when Amitabh Bachchan was on his rise to stardom; he shared most of his big screen space with wife Jaya as his leading lady. The much celebrated duo was one of the very few couples who shared an easy chemistry on-screen and seeing them as a leading pair in a film was every fan’s delight. They last starred together in Karan Johar’s 2001 film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
Now, 10 years later, Bollywood’s golden couple (both onscreen and offscreen) come together for a TV commercial for leading jewelery brand, Tanishq.
Confirming the news, Mr. Bachchan tweeted: “Early call tomorrow! With Jaya in front of cameras after K3G… Been a while!!”
Although they have successfully been paired in many films, this is the first time they will ‘glitter’ on the small screen together. With this advertisement, the senior Bachchan’s join the ranks of several other celebrity couples who endorse brands together, including son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya, who have shared screen space for ‘Lux’ soap commercials.
We’re hoping that this advertisement leads to more avenues of seeing the couple together on the big screen.
