Shweta Bachchan-Nanda released her debut novel Paradise Towers in Mumbai on Wednesday, 10 October. Published by Harper Collins, the slim novel revolves around the motley residents of a posh community building in Maximum City. The event was hosted by producer-filmmaker Karan Johar with parents Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan launching the book. Big B also read an excerpt from the book and critic-author Raja Sen talked to Bachchan-Nanda about the book.

“I rely on Shweta—on her opinion on incidents that happen in the world or in films—and she has always been right.”
Amitabh Bachchan, Actor
“Possibly the best actor in the Bachchan family is Shweta... I call her the Renaissance Girl. Paradise Towers is a loaf of life.”
Karan Johar, Filmmaker
