amitabh bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri

Had Amitabh Bachchan not married actress Jaya Bhaduri way back in 1973, and had got a chance to woo someone else, it would be the "epitome of Indian beauty" Waheeda Rehman. The megastar says he would have tried to catch her attention with a poem.

At the India Today Conclave 2014, when anchor Koel Purie asked him about one actress that he would have loved to court, he took the ethereal Waheeda Rehman's name despite the fact that she is six years his senior.

"It's too late in the day to do that now," laughed the 71-year-old thespian, adding that he admires her immensely for her grace and poise.

"She's been one of my favourite actors along with Dilip Kumar saab. She is the epitome of an Indian beauty, of simplicity... so genuine, soft and beautiful. If I had to woo her, perhaps I would recite a poem," he added.

Right then, the versatile star changed the mood of the gathering by reciting his famous couplet "Main aur meri tanhai aksar ye baatein kiya karte hain."

The gathering was floored.

Amitabh was in a jolly mood as he also imitated the mannerisms of the different onscreen characters immortalised by him, and he was also sporting enough to sing a few lines of the song "Mere angne mein tumhara kya kaam hai" on the effervescent Koel's behest.

The actor spoke fondly of his wife Jaya, with whom he has two children - Shweta and Abhishek.

Koel asked Big B about the challenges that came with marrying a popular star of that time, and then later becoming a star himself, with Jaya relegating her career for her family.

Was it challenging?

"Every marriage is a challenge, and mine wasn't different. One think I find very admirable about Jaya is that she chose to give preference to home and not films. There was no obstacle from me ever, it was her decision," he said.

Was it her decision or a joint decision, asked Koel.

"Well, in marriages, all decisions are taken by the wife," he quipped, adding that it was indeed Jaya's decision to look after the house and raise the children well.
