In an earlier interview, Amitabh Bachchan had said that his daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda is a great help to him when it comes to choosing the right script to act in. He said Shweta is opinionated and a lot of times they both discuss about various issues across the world. Amitabh Bachchan said, "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."
Amitabh Bachchan said, "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."
Shweta Bachchan Nanda recently turned author with her debut novel 'Paradise Towers'. When Shweta Bachchan Nanda's mother Jaya Bachchan 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."
Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan is gearing up for 'Thugs of Hindostan'. The iconic actor plays Khudabaksh - a battle-hardened warrior. Khudabaksh is seen as a commander of this massive ship as he gets ready for a huge war in the motion poster. 'Thugs of Hindostan' is slated to release on November 8, 2018
