In a recent interview to a popular magazine, Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda stated how she has grown up around working women. However, commenting on the excerpt shared by the glossy, when a troll asked her what her mom Shweta Bachchan Nanda does for a living, she gave her an apt reply.
Navya Naveli, who recently launched Project Naveli, to fight against gender inequality, told the magazine, “I have 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 have to start with education and financial independence.”
Commenting under the post, a user asked her, “What work does her mother do? LOL.” To his comment, Navya replied, “She’s an author, writer, designer, wife and mother.” “Being a mother and wife is a full-time job. Please don’t discredit women who are housemakers. Their role is so crucial in the upbringing of a generation that will hopefully support their contribution instead of tearing it down,” she further added.
Navya graduated from New York’s Fordham University last year. She has also started an online healthcare portal called Aara Health.
