Without a doubt, Amitabh Bachchan is the biggest star in Bollywood, underscored by the responses we received for our cover story. And in our exclusive interview for our Valentine’s special he was kind enough to share his thoughts on love and marriage. Kar
The exclusive interview with Amitabh Bachchan (‘The Big B on Love’, February 6), the indisputable superduper-star of Indian cinema, made for a wonderful read. The warm relationship he shares with his wife Jaya was evident throughout the beautifully written article.
Reading about the strong bond between India’s most high-profile couple – which remains intact even after more than 40 years of marriage – is very reassuring in these times. It is an endearing example for an industry in which relationships are fickle and shaky and news of an impending marriage is usually met with cynical speculation.
For Valentine’s Day, here’s wishing them both good health and eternal happiness for many years to come.
You guys made my weekend! You not only put my all-time favourite actor Amitabh Bachchan on the cover, but did a great interview with him as well. He, as usual, was extremely eloquent and made a lot of sense, especially when he said that ‘marriage is a continuous process... it is something that you have to keep working at’.
So here’s hoping that what India’s biggest superstar says about love and relationships serves as a wake-up call to all those couples who allow their responsibilities towards their kids, extended family and respective careers to take precedence over their marital relationship.
Itotally enjoyed your Valentine’s issue, even though I’m not much of a romantic, not in the clichéd way at least. My favourite article was ‘What kind of romantic are you?’ (February 6), mainly because
know a lot of people who belong to the categories mentioned and the analyses helped me empathise with their ‘strange’ ways. I hope that after reading this article all those who are in love do some introspection and realise that relationships are not about being in control but about being compassionate.
After reading the feature on the relevance of various phrases on love (‘Your proverb-ial guide to love’, February 6), I was in stitches. What I enjoyed the most about the article was the tongue-in-cheek way the love experts analysed some of the most popular idioms.
Also, reading the piece took me back in time to when I was a hormone-driven teenager who would fall in love at the drop of a hat and every time would convince myself that it was real and forever.
Then, when the relationship did not last, I would mope around for days before I would fall in what I thought was love all over again.
While reading the feature, I suddenly remembered all the silly things that I did and said.
Oh, embarrassing memories but lovely article. Great job!
