Shweta Nanda confesses to have never been inclined to be a part of Bollywood. Apart from a short-lived incident involving being the host of a TV show, which she terms "disastrous", Shweta bluntly says, "I'm scared of cameras and I'm not good with crowds. I don't think I have the talent or the face to be a heroine. I'm happy where I am." Nanda has always been a mystery, a woman standing among her kin at events but rarely choosing to speak. "She is quietly effective," says her mother Jaya (whom Nanda calls her biggest critic). "She shies away from the limelight."
