Veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan‘s daughter, Shweta Bachchan may not have taken the same route as her parents, but she surely has a brush-up with celebrities every now and then and despite that, Shweta has always been mesmerised by the starry galore. In one of her appearances on Karan Johar‘s chat show, Koffee With Karan, Shweta Bachchan Nanda had opened up on crushing over Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. Shweta had joined her actor brother Abhishek Bachchan on the Koffee couch. The brother-sister duo took a nostalgia trip and shared two interesting throwback stories. Circa 1989 Salman Khan and Bhagyashree’s Maine Pyar Kiya had released. Shweta Bachchan was a teenager back then and was living in a boarding school.
Shweta Bachchan watched the film on a VCR, as was the way back then. She loved the film so much that she got Abhishek Bachchan to get the ‘FRIEND’ cap that Salman Khan wore in Maine Pyar Kiya and later gifted it to Bhagyashree in a scene. “We weren’t allowed to watch movies in school, so I actually sat there with a tape recorder and I recorded the whole thing on an audio cassette, and I would listen to it. I loved him and I wanted to wear that little cap that said ‘Friend’,” Shweta revealed enthusiastically.
Abhishek revealed that he would carry multiple caps for her and their cousins while visiting them in London. “I used to sleep with it under my pillow,” Shweta gushed. Shweta also added that she has been a huge fan of the perfectionist Aamir Khan. Abhishek went on to share a story saying that the Sarfarosh actor being the kind-hearted individual he’s been would write a letter to Shweta. “Aamir got to know and so sweetly, on every birthday, he used to write her a letter,” the Players actor shared. Adding like a girl crushing on a celeb, Shweta gushed over the fact that she shared the same birthday month with her favourite actor. Shweta and Aamir are both Pisceans. While Aamir Khan’s birthday falls on 14th March, Shweta celebrates her birthday, three days after, on 17th March.
Abhishek Bachchan is a doting brother to Shweta. The Bol Bachchan actor revealed that while pursuing their higher studies in Boston, Shweta made Abhishek hire a limousine to watch a live performance of Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Cool, right?
