All the goods sold out within hours. It is young and select and affordable and so trendy. The effort made by all has been so exhilarating and filled with the pride of all those friends that came in numbers to encourage and wish her. Jjust so comforting to sit aside and enjoy the love she gets. Gushing with pride and love. Children do this for us."
Shweta Bachchan Nanda's younger brother Abhishek Bachchan also dedicated an Instagram post for her "huge achievement". "Style personified! When you do something of your own and by yourself, that's a huge achievement. Well done Shwetdi for the launch of mxsworld and congratulations Monisha Jaising. May MxS be the hugest success.

Karan Johar also shared a heartfelt message for his "best buddy" Shweta where he described her as a "closeted actor". Congratulating Shweta for her new venture, Karan Johar wrote: "Shweta ....not only my childhood best buddy but a bonafide personality in her own right. She is a closeted actor but stayed away from the arc lights...her thoughts. Her writing and her sense of aesthetic makes her truly individualistic . Today as she makes her first baby step in the world of fashion I want her to know that will be a huge success because she is a millennial at heart and will connect with all the fashionistas and retail crazy people like me! Love you Shweta! Monisha Jaising and you will make an incredible duo! Today is the beginning of a strong fashion voice!"
