Daughter Shweta helps Amitabh Bachchan to choose right scripts

Thursday - October 11, 2018 1:34 pm , Category : ENTERTAINMENT
Mumbai Oct 11: Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says his daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda is a great help to him when it comes to choosing the right script to act in.
Amitabh addressed the media at the launch of Shweta s debut novel "Paradise Towers" here on Wednesday.
He said Shweta is opinionated and a lot of times they both discuss about various issues across the world.
"She really is the best actor in the family. She is also very perceptive about observations and I do rely on her many a times as just a rest of the family on many incidents that may happen within the city home country and world. She has an opinion. Many times we discuss the outcome of a film that I may have done or a film that she may have seen. I have to say that she is always been right.
"When she says the film is going to do well it does well and when she says it s not going to do well it doesn t. So many times I have begun to share some of my scripts with her. I am afraid I couldn t do that earlier and I want an excuse for that but recently though she has been extremely helpful and very perceptive in giving me ideas and thoughts on what I was working on " Big B said.
He said he can only give her love and blessings and thanked the audience for encouraging Shweta "to grow not just as my daughter but as a woman and a lady".
When Shweta s mother Jaya was asked to share what she felt about her daughter becoming an author she said: "I knew she would do this. Since she was a child I knew that she would someday write. It was a mother s instinct. I think she is very inspired by Karan Johar s screenplay writing because the way he does the detailing of his characters in films is what Shweta has done in this book.
"I was actually quite surprised and I keep asking her if this character resembles that person we knew and then she would say No no not at all ."
Set in an apartment building in Mumbai of a certain vintage unlike the new-fangled high-rises dotting the city "Paradise Towers" revolves around the lives of the residents. If the demographic is carefully inclusive -- Bengalis Gujaratis NRIs Muslims -- the characters faithfully conform to every cliche associated with the communities.
