Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda is acing her social media game since she became active thereon. Recently, a troll asked Navya what her mother Shweta Bachchan Nanda does and she had the foremost respectful and uplifting reply for it.
Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda hit out at a troll, who dared to discuss her mother Shweta Bachchan’s profession. In an interview with Vogue recently, Navya opened about her new venture – Project Naveli – which aims to empower women by addressing the difficulty of gender inequality in India. On Instagram, the magazine shared a snippet of Navya’s interview, during which she says: “I’ve grown up around working women in my family-my grandmother, my mother, my bua-it’s all I’ve known. To bring that change, you’ve got to start out with education and financial independence,” Commenting on the post, a user seemed to insinuate that Navya’s mother Shweta Bachchan isn’t an example of a “working woman” and asked: “What work does her mother do? LOL.”
Adding a smiley, Navya Naveli skilled the troll with an inventory of titles for Shweta Bachchan and wrote: “She’s an author, writer, designer, wife and mother.” Calling out the troll during a separate Instagram story, Navya added: “Being a mother and wife may be a full-time job. Please don’t discredit women who are housemakers. Their role is so crucial within the upbringing of a generation which will hopefully support their contribution rather than tearing it down.”
Shweta Bachchan Nanda, who is married to businessman Nikhil Nanda, is a published author – her book Paradise Towers released in 2018 on Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday. Shweta also launched a designer label together with designer Monisha Jaising that year – Navya modelled for her mom’s collection.
Meanwhile, shout-outs for Navya’s Project Naveli poured in on social media from her loudest cheerleaders – granddad Amitabh Bachchan and uncle Abhishek Bachchan. “So proud of you Navya… you make all of so proud… love you,” wrote Big B during a tweet while Abhishek added: “Proud mamu! Well done, Navya.”
Navya Naveli Nanda graduated from New York’s Fordham University last year after which she started a web healthcare portal called Aara Health.
