With Shweta Bachchan Nanda's recent acting debut for a jewellery brand, we can finally say that we have seen all members of the Bachchan family act on screen. The commercial features actor Amitabh Bachchan and his daughter Shweta as a middle-class father and daughter, who visit a bank to return the extra amount of money received by him as a pension.
The on-screen bond of the two highlight the heart-warming relationship that a real father and daughter share. The ad also talks about morals and principles of the older generation that the brand is trying to convey to the audience.
The recently released commercial was shared by both Shweta and Amitabh Bachchan on their respective social media accounts. While Shweta wrote a sweet message for her father, saying, “From our ad! @SrBachchan you’re my safety net for life. You made this so seamless for me! I loved going to work with you! Thank you xx,” the 102 Not Out actor wrote, “Emotional moment for me .. tears welling up every time I see it .. daughters are the BEST !!”
Within 24 hours of the release, the ad went viral on social media platforms and fans couldn't stop praising the two for the touching story. Some, however, were not happy with the way Indian bankers are showcased in the ad and the brand got mixed reactions for choosing the theme. While we are still trying to connect the dots between the ad's concept and it's relation to the jewellery brand, take a look at the bouquets and brickbats coming from fans.
