Grandchildren always find their comfort zone in their grandparents. When they want something and know that their parents will not agree to it, then they immediately rush to their grandpa and grandma and get their wishes fulfilled. Grandparents teach them the life lessons, which will stay with them throughout their whole life. Nevertheless, Grandparents experience the joy of unconditional love from their grandchildren and their love never grows old. They are a perfect blend of care, nurture, scolding, and love and become our secret diary, who never spill a secret.

One such adorable grandfather is the shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, who shares an incredible bond with all of his grandchildren, Navya Naveli Nanda, Agastya Nanda, and Aaradhya Bachchan. The veteran actor had shared in an interview with the IANS that he loves spoiling his grandchildren and often takes advantage of his authoritative post. He had also revealed that because of his authoritative position in the family, their parents would not oppose him. Amit ji is surely an epitome of a doting grandfather. Recently, one of his grandchildren, Navya Naveli Nanda shared a heart-melting throwback picture on her Instagram handle in which we can see naanu dearest giving her a tight hug.

Aren’t they looking adorable? Well, the reason behind such a strong bond between Amit ji and his granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda goes to his immense love and craving to be in touch with his grandchildren. Once, Amit ji had written a letter for his granddaughters, Navya Naveli Nanda and Aaradhya Bachchan. The pictures of the letters had spread like a wildfire all over the internet because of the things that were written in it. His long letter for her granddaughters, Navya and Aaradhya can be read as, “My very dearest Navya and Aaradhya, You both carry a very valuable legacy on your tender shoulders – Aaradhya, the legacy of your pardadaji, Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan…and Navya, the legacy of your pardadaji, Shri H P Nanda…. Both your pardadajis gave your present surnames celebrated fame, dignity and recognition! Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls…women! And because you are women people will force their thinking, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, whom you can meet and where you can go.”
In the letter, Amit ji had also warned Navya for not taking her surname for granted and shows his immense belief in her. His letter could be further read as, "Navya – the privilege your name, your surname offers you, will not protect you from the difficulties you will face because you’re a woman. But I believe that it is women like you that will change that. It may not be easy, setting your boundaries, making your own choices, rising above people’s judgment. But YOU! you can set an example for women everywhere. Do this and you would have done more than I have ever done, and it will be my honour to be known not as Amitabh Bachchan, but as your grandfather!! With all my love Your Dadaji your Nana.”
No wonder, Amit ji wants to share his valuable experience with his granddaughters so that they can have a better understanding of this world. However, Amit ji is also a big fan of sharing throwback pictures. On January 1, 2020, Amit ji had taken to his Twitter handle and had posted a picture with his grandchildren, Navya, Agastya and Aaradhya and wished everyone the New Year 2020. In the picture, Navya was looking beautiful in a beige-coloured salwar suit, whereas, Aaradhya had flaunted her red dupatta over her white-coloured kurta. On the other hand, Jaya ji was looking pretty in a yellow coloured-suit and Agastya had twinned with his dada ji in the shades of beige.
