Shweta Nanda makes acting debut with father Amitabh Bachchan


Acting runs in the blood of the Bachchan family and the latest example is Big B and Jaya Bachchan's daughter Shweta Nanda, who shot for a jewellery brand with her father and megastar Amitabh Bachchan, venturing into acting.

Photographer Viral Bhayani has shared picture of the two shooting for the ad. In the pictures, Shweta sports a simple next-door- girl look while Big B is seen as an aged man.

Amitabh Bachchan is definitely shooting with Shweta for Kalyan Jewellers. Since 2012, he has been the brand ambassador of the noted jewellery brand. Jaya Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too are associated with the jewelry brand. The new ad throws light on the father-daughter relationship. It will go on-air from July.

Shweta also made her debut as a writer. Her debut book Paradise Towers will be published by Harper Collins India.

Big B is elated that his father Harivanshrai Bachchan's “legacy found a reflection in his family”.  Harper Collins India acquired the publishing rights of Shweta’s debut novel, ‘Paradise Towers’ and the book will be published in 2020. In a Facebook post, the publisher of Shweta's novel described Paradise Towers "as a heart-warming slice-of-life novel set in a Mumbai apartment."

Taking to his Instagram account, Amitabb Bachchan wrote, “THE PROUDEST-FATHER .. my daughter the best and GREATEST”.

Talking about her novel, Shweta Bachchan said, “The concept of a book and the actual writing of it are two very different things. Writing this story down was daunting. Lots of second guessing and labouring over words made up the process. I am excited to have my first book published but I am also anxious to know what the readers think of the microcosm that is Paradise Towers, and I hope they would come to be as invested in the lives of its inhabitants as I have come to be”.

Shweta Nanda was married to businessman Nikhil Nanda and the couple were blessed with two children, Navya Naveli and Agastya.
