It was not love at first sight for Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan. The actress had first met him at the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune in 1970, while he saw her on a magazine cover. They both got attracted to each other at the beginning but love bloomed when they started shooting for their 1972 release Ek Nazar.
Recalling their first official meeting, Jaya had said, "I was introduced to him on the sets of Guddi. I was impressed by him and somewhat in awe as he was Harivanshrai Bachchan's son. I felt he was different, though people laughed at me when I said that. I expressed my feelings and said he's going to make it big, even though I was aware he wasn't the usual stereotype hero. I fell in love with him very soon."
