Megastar Amitabh Bachchan had a movie date with his loving daughter Shweta Nanda. The father-daughter duo stepped out on Thursday night to watch Mani Ratnam’s Tamil flick, ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ in Mumbai.

Big B, who will be next seen in Soojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’ as Deepika Padukone’s father waved to the media as he arrived in his car. Shweta Nanda looks simple in a denim shirt with a stole and a pair of glasses.

Amitabh Bachchan is full of praise for the film. The refreshing love story stars Dulquer Salmaan and Nitya Menen.

The 72-year-old took to his official blog to share the news about watching the film with his daughter Shweta Nanda.

"Shweta and I get to see Mani Ratnam's new and fresh Tamil film at a trial, and it is a sweet and endearing story of love among the young. Fresh and with a sense of the changing times, in keeping with the sensibilities of this generation, it shows compassion and example with great dexterity," he posted on srbachchan.tumblr.com.

"Values are not lost in the practices that this generation may desire, but sufficient understanding on both parts is beautifully portrayed by two young performers who play the lead.

The ‘Paa’ actor praised the lead stars of the film, "They are a delight to watch - the boy, Mammootty's son...Mammootty the mega star of Malayalam Cinema in Kerala...and equally a sprightly love interest in his opposite number...a young lady of enormous verve," he shared.

‘O Kadhal Kanmani’, released on April 17 opened with rave reviews from critics. The film earns over Rs.14 crore at the box office worldwide in the first four days of its release.
