Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan and his wife , veteran actress Jaya Bachchan to play a married couple in the upcoming film.

The real life couple Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan will soon be seen on the screen after sixteen years as they reunite on the big screen to play onscreen married couple for a forthcoming film directed by Shoojit Sircar. The celebrity pair will be seen as an aged couple in the film.

Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan have in the past worked together for various films such as ' Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham in 2001, Silsila in 1981, Chupke Chupke in 1975, Abhimaan in 1973 and Zanjeer to name a few.

Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan were also seen in a cameo role in Ki & Ka in 2006 and in a Bhojpuri film,  Ganga Devi in 2012. 

The film by Shoojit Sircar is about a couple married for 40 years and are approaching their twilight years.  Their fear is not of death but the fear of what happens if either one of  them goes ?  The story was narrated to them by Shoojit about 4 years but they were not excited at that time to take on to the role .   He has directed Amitabh Bachchan in Piku in 2015 and produced Pink in 2016 starring Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role.  He was very keen to make this film and approached them once again.

Although both of them have been making special appearances in a few films they haven't really played a full fleged role together since last sixteen years.  So the audience can wait to watch the favourite star celebrity couple soon on screen together.
