Bachchan is married to Amitabh Bachchan, and her son Abhishek Bachchan is also an actor.After appearing as a child actor in Satyajit Ray's Mahanagar (1963), she made her first screen role as an adult in Guddi (1971) directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, and performed in films including Jawani Diwani (1972), Koshish, Anamika, Piya Ka Ghar and Bawarchi. She appeared alongside her husband Amitabh Bachchan in films such as Zanjeer (1973), Abhimaan (1973), Chupke Chupke(1975), Mili (1975) and Sholay (1975). She restricted her film work in the coming years and after Silsila in 1981, took a sabbatical for films, only to return with Govind Nihlani's Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa (1998). During her career, she won three Filmfare Best Actress Awards, three Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Awards, which makes her the overall most-awarded performer in the female acting categories, along with Nutan. She was awarded the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. She started her career with a supporting role in Satyajit Ray's Bengali film, Mahanagar at the age of 15. Inspired by her experience with Ray, she decided to join Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune to learn acting, and passed out with the gold medal, and she was also picked out to play the eponymous role of Guddi in the 1971 Hrishikesh Mukherjee film, Guddi. She first acted with her future husband Amitabh Bachchan in the film, Bansi Birju (1972), followed by B.R. Ishara's Ek Nazar also in the same year. Amitabh had undergone a string of flops, and when most lead heroines refused to work him, in Salim-Javed scripted, Zanjeer (1973), she stepped into the film. The film turned out to be blockbuster and gave rise to Amitabh Bachchan's angry-young-man image. Her daughter Shweta was born while Jaya and Amitabh were working on Sholay. Following this she retired from films and focused on raising her children. Her last film as a lead actress was Silsila (1981), opposite her husband. During the late 1980s she wrote the story for the film Shahenshah which starred her husband in the lead. Sourced from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaya_Bachchan)

Astro-numerological prediction for Jaya Bachchan

Astro-numerological prediction for Jaya Bachchan


A very happy birthday to whom most people consider to be the real ‘don’ of the Bachchan family. Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts what’s in store for Mrs. Jaya Bachchan on her 65th birthday. “Born on 9th April 1948 Jayaji is a Number 9 (Mars) person in numerology ruled once again by Number 9 (Aries – ruler Mars) while her destiny number adds up to Number 8 (Saturn)” explains Bhavikk. “Being ruled by Number 9 twice, Jayaji is a stubborn personality, aggressive in her behavior and adamant when it comes to decision making. Once she decides what she wants to do, she persists till she achieves her target and then sets out for another task. That way, one can say she doesn’t believe in taking rest and is highly energetic. Although the impact of ‘shani’ in her chart would at times give her physical and mental struggle which she needs to cope up with”. “Jayaji will be entering the 66th year of her life from now on which indicates happier times in the days ahead – be it on a personal, professional (whether films or politics) or the health front” predicts Bhavikk. “Wearing an Emerald on a Wednesday morning (two hours after sunrise) and a Blue Sapphire (after testing) will make sure this phase will last long without much delays and obstacles in her path whatsoever” advices Bhavikk  before signing off.
