Shweta to launch debut novel in October

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Bachchan-Nandas debut novel, Paradise Towers, a heart-warming slice-of-life novel set in an apartment building in Mumbai, will have a multi city launch in October.

“The idea for Paradise Towers came to me one morning on waking up. This is not unnatural for me. I come from a family of storytellers. As children, we were encouraged to write and read and our imaginations were given a free reign,” said Shweta.

“The concept of a book and the actual writing of it are two very different things. Writing this story down was daunting. Lots of second guessing and labouring over words made up the process. I am excited to have my first book published but I am also anxious to know what the readers think of the microcosm that is Paradise Towers, and I hope they would come to be as invested in the lives of its inhabitants as I have come to be,” she added.

Also, HarperCollins India announced that it has acquired the Indian subcontinent rights for Paradise Towers. The acquisition includes a second work of fiction, due to be published in 2020.
