As all roads lead to Vaastu building in Pali Hill, north west Mumbai, where Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor will wed, it's a good time to look up Raj Kapoor's grandchildren.

Born to Raj Kapoor's eldest child Ritu Nanda and her husband Rajan Nanda, Nikhil heads the Escorts group of companies, which his late grandfather H P Nanda founded and his late father once headed.

Nikhil wed Shweta Bachchan, Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan's eldest child, in 1997.

Shweta and Nikhil have two children, Navya Naveli Nanda (born December 1997) and Agastya Nanda (born November 2000).

Navya heads an NGO and looks like she will eventually head to her father's business; Agastya is billed to make his acting debut in Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti's Web series based on the Archie comics, also featuring Khushi Kapoor and Suhana Khan.
