- Navya is the elder of Shweta Bachchan Nanda's two children
- Navya's younger brother is Agastya
- Shweta confessed on TV that she steered Navya away from Bollywood
Shweta Bachchan Nanda shared a fabulous picture of her daughter Navya Naveli Nanda on Instagram. Navya, dressed in a ruffle-collar shirt with an embellished jacket, is all smiles in the picture, which Shweta captioned "Sprezzatura." In colloquial fashion vocabulary, 'sprezzatura' means 'seemingly effortless style' and we think Navya has aced it. For Navya, being stylish comes almost naturally, courtesy her mother Shweta. Shweta, the elder of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan's two children, debuted as a designer last year in collaboration with Monisha Jaising. At that time, she had picked Navya the muse for the photoshoot of her collection.
Take a look at Shweta Bachchan Nanda's post:
Navya Naveli has illustrious Bollywood celebrities in her family tree. She is the granddaughter of actor couple Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. Her uncle Abhishek Bachchan is married to actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Navya's paternal grandmother Ritu Nanda is the daughter of legendary actor Raj Kapoor. Ritu Nanda's brothers are actors Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor.
Recently, when Shweta appeared on talk show Koffee With Karan 6, she confessed she had played an instrumental role in steering Navya away from Bollywood. Shweta accepted that she "drilled it" in Navya's head that the film industry is a "dark, strange and unstable place." She said: "I think I was excessive (in my analysis). I think I was unfair. I think, I only thought selfishly." She also said: "I don't know what Navya's talent is. I feel, unless she's completely driven, passionate and talented, she has no business being here. Just because she's related to some famous people doesn't mean she has what it takes."
Shweta Bachchan Nanda is married to businessman Nikhil Nanda and they are also parents to 18-year-old Agastya. Shweta is also the author of Paradise Towers.
