Shweta Bachchan’s new “serendipitous find” is a gem from her chest of memories. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan’s daughter shared a rare vintage photo of her grandparents, the late poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and his wife Teji Bachchan on Instagram. The late couple is seen sitting with poise on a sofa beside each other. Shweta reminisced them as she wrote in the caption, “The poet and his poetry – my grandparents. You are sorely missed.” Replying to a comment, Shweta said that she “found this among a pile of old Polaroids in a desk drawer this evening. It is her birth anniversary tomorrow, so rather a serendipitous find.” Nothing could be better for marking the birth anniversary of Teji Bachchan.
Shweta Bachchan’s daughter Navya Naveli Nanda and actor Ranveer Singh dropped red hearts in the comments section. Actor Angad Bedi wrote, “Waheguru” and added red hearts too.
Shweta Bachchan had marked her daadi’s birth anniversary with yet another vintage photo last year. In this photo, Teji Bachchan is seen in her “trademark sunglasses,” holding two “chilled, ice-filled glasses of Thums Up” alongside little Abhishek Bachchan. Shweta’s caption recollected her experience with her grandmother, “We are shaped by the places we travel to, the people we eat with, and the books we read- to my Daadi, the giver of books, teller of bedtime stories, and gracious provider of trunks for her 6 grandchildren to use as a stage to dance on. Thinking of you today.”
If we pored over Shweta Bachchan’s Instagram pictures, we will find a cluster of old sepia photos. She often marks a birthday or anniversary with a rare snap from her family’s past. On Father’s Day this year, Shweta shared a snapshot of Amitabh Bachchan tending to a baby Shweta Bachchan.
When it was time to celebrate the marriage anniversary of her parents, Shweta Bachchan picked a fun photo from the couple’s young days. There, the star pair is seen laughing and enjoying their time together.
Shweta Bachchan is currently living in Mumbai with her children Navya Naveli Nanda and Agastya Nanda. She is often seen sharing photos of both her kids on Instagram.
