When Karan Johar showed Jaya Bachchan using a stool to help her husband, Amitabh Bachchan, wear his tie in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, it was a classic case of a tall husband with his not-so-tall wife. If only Bollywood actors had a similar height difference in real life!

Don't let Hindi film heroes and heroines fool you with their on-screen taller-than-usual avatars.
