Amitabh Bachchan’s Emotional Post After His Daughter, Shweta Bachchan’s Novel Becomes A Bestseller
“Ordinary father-daughter love had a charge to it that generally was both permitted and indulged. There was just something so beautiful about the big father complementing the tiny girl. Bigness and tininess together at last—yet the bigness would never hurt the tininess! It respected it. In a world in which big always crushes tiny, you wanted to cry at the beauty of big being kind of and worshipful of and being humbled by tiny. You couldn’t help but think of your own father as you saw your little girl with hers.” says Meg Wolitze. Amitabh Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda make one of the most famous father-daughter duos of Bollywood.
Shweta Bachchan Nanda novel’s has become the bestseller in India and is topping the charts on the online shopping portal, Amazon. And so the proud father, Amitabh Bachchan shares how he feels about it. Sharing the following pic, Amit ji wrote, “Nothing brings greater pride to a Father than this achievement of a DAUGHTER! daughters are special. From this little ‘ghunghat’ to the ‘bestseller GHAT!’
Shweta Bachchan Nanda has also always been vocal about her father, Amitabh Bachchan and how she feels about being the megastar’s daughter. So one day she penned down and wrote “It’s Sunday evening and the gates of our home have just been flung open so the throng of people baking in the sun for hours can catch a glimpse of my father. He stands on a makeshift podium, and waves. The crowd surges. People throw flowers and cards as iPhones light up the horizon with intermittent flashes and pictures of dubious quality are taken. He steps off the podium and the gates close. The traffic, held up through the course of the day, finally begins to move freely. This is a ritual observed every Sunday, subject to him being in town, for 30-odd years.”
Amitabh Bachchan is never outdated, claimed his daughter in her write-up, She continued, “After many hours of agonising over the correct answer to the question “What makes your father COOL?” it dawns on me that there is no secret formula. He is a prolific adaptor to changing circumstances. It is as simple and as difficult as that. He harbours none of the disdain age has for youth: he doesn’t screw up his nose to the music, art or sartorial sensibilities of the generations that have succeeded him. In fact, he’s adjusted himself to find harmony in all of it. He is never outdated, be it the newest technological fad—the Apple watch, for instance—or mastering social media. He’s on top of it all, and he’s terrific at it.”
Well, we hope that their relationship grows with time.
