Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan's granddaughter, and Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Nikhil Nanda's daughter, Navya Naveli Nanda was born on December 6, 1997. She is a Digital Technology Graduate from Fordham University, and had worked as a Marketing Intern for firms like Godrej Group, Ogilvy, AAVRANI and Development Intern for Facebook Marketing Company. Later, she had co-founded a women's health platform, Aara Health.
While soon after her birth, Navya Naveli Nanda had become everyone’s jaan, her mamu, Abhishek Bachchan pampers her a little more than everyone else. On December 6, 2020, to make her feel special on her birthday, her mamu, Abhishek had wished her with a beautiful picture. Sharing a happy picture of the birthday girl on his IG stories, Abhishek had written atop it:
"Happy birthday beautiful #Favourite.”
Now as Navya turned 24, her mamu, Abhishek shared a memorable picture of her from his wedding with Aishwarya Rai. To celebrate Navya’s birthday, Abhishek shared a childhood picture of Navya wearing a white saree with golden and silver gotta-patti work on it, which she had worn at her mama and mami’s wedding. Sharing the picture, Abhishek wrote:
“Happy Birthday my dearest Navya! So, so proud of the lady you’ve grown to become. Love you. @navyananda.”
Wondering how we know if Navya’s picture is from Aishwarya and Abhishek’s wedding? Well, a few years ago, the designer duo, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla had made us nostalgic when they had posted a series of unseen pictures from Aishwarya and Abhishek's grand wedding in 2007. In one of the pictures, we could see Navya standing with Shweta, Jaya and Abhishek, giving a glimpse of her outfit.
On Mother's Day 2021, Navya had posted a picture with her mommy, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, from her mamu, Abhishek Bachchan's wedding with Aishwarya Rai in 2007. Shweta and Navya had twinned in a white saree with a golden border for the wedding. Atop the picture, Navya had written:
"Maa – not a word, but a feeling."
Talking about Navya’s bond with Abhishek, on May 6, 2020, Navya’s mamu had shared a congratulatory note for his niece. He had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a picture of Navya celebrating her graduation ceremony in their garden and had written:
“Congratulations my Navya on your graduation! Although due to the lockdown you were not able to celebrate it at your university with your classmates and the home garden had to suffice... Seems like yesterday that we were moving you into your dorm room as a freshman... Wait, strike that. Not "we", "I"!! (You always managed to make Mamu do the heavy lifting). God bless you! Can't wait to see what you have in store for the world.”
On February 5, 2021, posting a throwback picture with her mamu, Abhishek, Navya had penned a cute wish for him expressing how she had missed their night outs in New York and that he is her best friend and might even be the favourite family member. She had written:
"Happy birthday bestfriend. To more NYC nights & Chelsea games. You may just be my favourite family member. My partner in all crimes!"
Happy birthday, Navya Naveli Nanda!
