Recently, Shweta took to her IG handle to share a portrait of her mother from the movie Abhimaan, that starred her parents, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan. Along with the pic, she also shared a long note on the magic her parents created on-screen and later, off-screen.
Sharing the pic, the doting daughter wrote, ” “this picture of me reminds me of you” my mother texts me. I disagree, she looks like herself, her unique self. A still from her movie, their movie Abhimaan, my parents’. I love it when she tells me stories about the making of these magical films, especially the ones where she is paired with my father. I lose track of whether they were sweethearts during the making or newlyweds or expectant parents or then new parents. How fantastic to think of your parents having a life beyond what they have come to represent to us today.”
She further added, “I looked for myself in her but I cannot for the life of me find a resemblance. Sometimes I find my daughter in there somewhere. I love this image – my mother so young a whole life ahead of her full of things to do and achieve. And so many years later still doing still achieving !! (Thank you Prashant and Kirti Sarkar for this lovely image of my mothers and the memories it brought with them, ever grateful x )”.
Shweta Bachchan-Nanda is married to Nikhil Nanda and the couple has two kids – daughter Navya Naveli and son Agastya.
