I don’t have the talent to be a heroine: Shweta Nanda
She may belong to a family of superstars, but Shweta Nanda, Amitabh Bachchan’s 38-year-old daughter, confesses to having no love for the camera. “I’m scared of cameras and I’m not good with crowds,” she says in an interview to Vogue India. And, she doesn’t stop there. “I don’t think I have the talent or the face to be a heroine. I’m happy where I am,” says Nanda.
While mother Jaya calls her quietly effective, Nanda says her younger-by-two-years brother, actor Abhishek, was in fact even more shy than her. She remembers the time they shared an apartment and divided chores while studying at the Boston University. “I would cook, and he would clean; he was in charge of the accounts, while I did the decor,” she recalls.
Their stay together ended when Nanda was 23 years old. “When I got married, he moved back home. He couldn’t cope. He was so shy that he wouldn’t even order a pizza on his own!” she says, smiling at how they’ve always been close to each other as siblings.
