Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan says that this year Holi has coincided with his daughter Shweta Nanda's 40th birthday and he is spending the day with her.
Amitabh Bachchan earlier wrote in his blog "We do not celebrate it (Holi), again. There have been discomforting news for the year, the passing away of relations distant...it would be disrespectful to be immersed in the colours of abandon and joy when some among us mourn, Tomorrow (Monday) is a day of travel again, to be with Shweta on her 40th...," he wrote.
Amitabh Bachchan recalled about his daughter's childhood days: "Dear me...so many years, and we still treat her like that cute cuddly little bundle who would stare at me in wonder every time she would come to pick me up from the airport after a long stint of shooting from out of the country or land."
Big B wrote, Shweta used to wonder who i was, and what i meant to her, for absence from her for long days would perplex her when she was just a couple of years old. Abhishek and Shweta are the two children he has with his wife Jaya Bachchan. The 71 year old actor says Shweta, married to Nikhil Nanda, a Delhi-based businessman remains our chief executive officer.
"When Shweta comes to our Mumbai home, it's never as though she went away and she does not ever allow us to feel that she left. Daughters have a way of doing that and they do it very well. She remains our chief executive officer and we turn to her for all the tough decisions that come our way. Daughters have a sense of the sixth, one that never fails to ring that cliched bell within us and for us it always rings well and loud. We are blessed and proud," he added.
Shweta Nanda has two children with Nikhil Nanda, daughter Navya Naveli and son Agastya. We wish her a Happy 40th Birthday.
