Introducing Amitabh Bachchan’s Granddaughter Navya Naveli
GORGEOUS IN A DELICATELY EMBROIDERED CHAMPAGNE PINK CHURIDAAR KAMEEZ, NAVYA NAVELI WAS THE PICTURE OF TEENAGE SOPHISTICATION AS SHE WATCHED HER GRANDFATHER RECEIVE THE PADMA VIBHUSHAN
Spotted among the sea of guests during the Padma Awards ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan yesterday was Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan’s maternal granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda. Navya Naveli is the daughter of Big B’s daughter Shweta and her husband Nikhil Nanda.
Gorgeous in a delicately embroidered champagne pink churidaar-kameez, Navya Naveli was the picture of teenage sophistication as she watched her grandfather receive the Padma Vibhushan. She was seen chatting with her grandmother Jaya Bachchan and with her maama Abhishek and maamiAishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Navya Naveli, who has a younger brother Agastye, has descended from Bollywood royalty not just from the maternal side. She is also the great-grandaughter of the legendary actor Raj Kapoor. She is currently studying at London’s prestigious Seven Oaks School, where actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son is also enrolled.
And while we’re not sure whether she will follow her grandfather’s footsteps, we can’t help feel that, with such an enviable gene pool and her looks, she could be the next star-in-the-making.
