Amitabh Bachchan has composed an emotional poem for daughter Shweta Nanda and granddaughter Navya.

Amitabh Bachchan on Friday shared a special poem in celebration of his daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda and his granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, who had posed together to promote Shweta’s new fashion brand. Amitabh has been sharing proud messages for his daughter, with whom he recently collaborated with on an ill-fated TV ad. Shweta’s brand has been launched in partnership with her friend Monisha Jaising.

“Yeh garv hai mera, beti betiyaan jab ubhar kar aati hain, apne dum par kuch kar ke humein dikhaati hain, motiyon se piroyi hui yeh mala, aise karna gehna yeh anmol hai, isse surakshit rakhna. (I am proud that my daughters have found success on their own, they are like beads of a necklace; such jewels are precious, keep them safe).”

Both Shweta and Navya have been making several public appearances lately. Shweta was involved in a bit of a controversy last month when she appeared in an advertisement with her father. The ad was billed as her acting debut and was criticised by members of the All India Bank Officers’ Confederation, an organisation claiming to have membership of around 3,20,000 officers, for being disrespectful towards the banking community. Kalyan Jewellers, the subject of the ad, later pulled it out of circulation.

It is turning out to be the year of Shweta Bachchan Nanda. Earlier this year, it was announced that her debut novel, Paradise Towers, will be published by Harper Collins. Sharing the announcement, Amitabh wrote: “The proudest - father... My daughter the best and greatest.”
