"Had decided if Zanjeer would succeed, we would along with a few friends go to London for the first time .. My Father asked who you going with? When I told him who, he said you must marry her before you go .. else you don't go... So .. I obeyed .. !!," Bachchan wrote in the caption.

The seasoned actor also shared four photos made in one collage, that saw the Bollywood's lovely couple sitting in the mandap and performing the marriage rituals.
