Big B and Jaya are not only one of the most iconic (if not the most) couples of Indian cinema, but have also appeared in a number of hit films, including Abhimaan, Chupke Chupke, Silsila, Mili and Zanjeer, together. They were last seen making a special appearance in R Balki’s Ki and Ka, where they played themselves.

Wishing both of you the happiest anniversary!
