Amitabh plays Subir, a renowned singer who encourages his wife Uma (Jaya) to also join his profession. But when she finds more success than him, their marriage begins to witness cracks.
The real life duo paired up once again for the iconic Sholay, building a quiet romance between an ex-convict and a widow.
Years after Jaya quit acting, she returned to the screen with her husband for Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
Arguably the most talked about film when it comes to the duo's marriage, Silsila capitalised on the real-life rumours surrounding Jaya, Amitabh and Rekha during the late Seventies and early Eighties.
The duo's first film was Bansi Birju, where they played a couple whose happy marriage takes a turn when their village finds out that Bansi is a sex worker.
