Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s debut television commercial is yet to release, but she has already found a fan in her father Amitabh Bachchan.
In an interview with IANS, Bachchan revealed that Nanda is the “true actor” of the family. “I know she won’t admit it but she is very good. She does fantastic mimicry. Anywhere we go, some incident happens, she will mimic everybody exactly to the point. She is a good actress.”
However, Nanda does not plan on pursuing acting professionally. “No. I don’t plan on taking acting as a career… It’s not a career. The only reason I am doing this is for Kalyan Jewellers. I think most women enjoy wearing jewellery and as a designer I also enjoy the process of designing it… and I enjoyed myself on the sets. It was great spending an entire day with my father,” she shared.
Nanda may not be an actor, but she is carrying the Bachchan legacy forward as a writer. “I have been reading her columns. She has a very natural flare of writing. Now, she has written an entire book which I am yet to read… I am very proud of the fact that she is writing because then it’s a hereditary continuation from my father to her. I feel very proud of her. I wish she continues to write,” said Bachchan. Nanda’s first novel ‘Paradise Towers’ will release in October.
