Amitabh Bachchan talks about his fortunate career, his father, and his compulsive need to keep working

There are two types of people — big ocean liners and nuclear submarines — when both meld into one, you get Amitabh Bachchan, a man who has revelled in his art form to bring joy to millions. A little known fact: his name was changed from Inquilaab (revolution) to Amitabh (blinding light) —  at the insistence of his father's friend Sumitranandan Pant. Ironically, years later Amitabh starred in a movie of the same name and he fit into an iconic role that he essayed with great perfection for years — that of an Angry Young Man. 

Shweta Bachchan Nanda teams up with father Amitabh Bachchan on screen for the first time!

The Father-daughter duo shot an ad together for the first time for a jewellery brand. Shweta Bachchan Nanda has also been roped in as an influencer for the brand. 

We are told, "Shweta will feature in the brand’s latest TV campaign along with her father Shri Amitabh Bachchan, who has been the brand's global brand ambassador since 2012. The father-daughter duo will enact the special bond they share for each other on film for the first time.

 The ad film, scripted by L&K Saatchi & Saatchi and directed by GB Vijay, narrates the story of a father and daughter, while also echoing the values of trust and transparency, what the brand stands for. Renowned for her sartorial elegance, Shweta will also bring her unique style sensibilities by curating signature collections for the brand. 

Ramesh Kalyanaraman, Executive Director, of the brand said, “We are extremely delighted that Shweta has consented to participate in our TV campaign. We have had a long association with the illustrious Bachchan family, with both Mr and Mrs Bachchan representing the brand globally. We believe that audience will love to see the film wherein, both, Shri Amitabh Bachchan and Shweta play the role of a father and daughter, in an ad film for the first time. As a brand we always celebrated the bonds of family and relationships and the new film epitomizes family values. Shweta’s design inputs will also augment our signature collections."

The ad which is also being shot in Malayalam will have Manju Warrier playing the role of Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter. The advertisement is expected to go on air in July. news by HT
