'Zanjeer' a success and a promise that if it did well we would all- a gang of our friends- would go on a holiday to London!

Seeking or rather informing parents that we were a group of friends going to England .. who all are going came the query from Babuji .. names disclosed .. Jaya is also going with you .. you both are alone .. yes .. if you have to go marry and go .. ok .. pandit and family informed .. next day all set .. flight at night .. marriage to finish before the flight .. I dress up in formal marriage Indian .. get into my car and want to drive to Malabar Hill where her friends lived and where the ceremony was to be done .. my driver Nagesh, pushes me out and insist he would drive me to the wedding .. the substitute for the tradition horse .. Waiting all set at Mangal, the name of the house on rent on the 7th road JVPD Scheme .. and it begins to drizzle .. neighbours rush out to me .. leave for the wedding now .. the rain is a good omen .. off I went .. wedding over in a few hours .. done .. Mr and Mrs proclaimed .. over !!”

Bachchan wrote at the end of his post, “Thank you all in my advance response of the wishes for the 3rd June. I am grateful for your love and affection and remembrance.” Abhishek Bachchan shared a photo of his parents on Instagram on the occasion and wrote, “Happy Anniversary to the parentals! Love you both eternally. #46andcounting.”
