Such was the first meeting of Amitabh-Jaya
When Jaya Bachchan was studying in Pune, Amitabh Bachchan came here for her first film ‘Saat Hindustani’ (1969). Jaya Bachchan knew him. Jaya Bachchan’s friends were teasing Amitabh, calling him Lambu-Lambu, but Jaya took him seriously. At that time, the image of Amitabh Bachchan was in his mind, that of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s cultured and simplistic son.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee had earlier cast Amitabh Bachchan along with Jaya Bhaduri for his film ‘Guddi’. Later, Amitabh Bachchan was sidelined from this film. Film industry experts say that Jaya had a kind of love or sympathy for Amitabh after this incident.
