Jaya Bachchan Tells Navya To Marry Her Best Friend, Shweta Adds 'Your Equation Is Anyway Ruined'

Navya Naveli Nanda, Jaya Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda are currently seen on the fun-filled podcast, What The Hell Navya Season 2. The Bachchan ladies divulge various topics prevalent in society and express their opinions on the same. Recently, they had a long discussion on how friendships have evolved in today’s time.

Jaya Bachchan reveals romance is out of the window after marriage

In the latest episode, Navya Naveli Nanda asked her grandmother, Jaya Bachchan if she still believes that one should marry their best friend. And Jaya was quick to reply with a yes. However, Navya further asked if it was a wise decision to bring romance in between a friendship and said, “Do you think it always works marrying your best friend?” Responding to it, the Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani actress replied:

“Romance out of the window… it will be out (of the window) after marriage.”

Reacting to Jaya's statement, Navya said that when two people are good friends, it doesn't mean that they are keen to be in a relationship with each other. She shared:

“What if two people are just good friends? It doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to be involved romantically.”


However, it looked like Shweta Bachchan disagreed with her daughter, Navya's opinion. She interjected and told her daughter that if the latter wanted to date her friend, she should definitely go for it, as life is so short. In her words:

“Are you saying if you have feelings for your friend, should you go for it or not? I feel life is short, go for it.”


Shweta Bachchan expresses her opinion on marrying one's best friend

Soon, Navya pointed out that such a situation would ruin one's equation with their friend, and Shweta expressed her opinion on it. She shared that when a person holds a deep friendship with somebody and develops feelings for the other one, their equation gets ruined. Elaborating on it, Shweta mentioned that there are different layers of a person when they are romantically involved with someone and added:

“Your equation is anyway ruined. Because if one person has feelings and the other one doesn’t reciprocate, it’s ruined. If the friendship is that deep and strong and the affection is there, after the hurt and pain is gone, you’ll get back to being friends. And if it isn’t, what’s the point anyway? At least you know better. Because I think when you’re in a romantic relationship with someone you understand different aspects of that person. Like you could be an amazing friend, but a terrible girlfriend to someone. So there are different layers when you’re romantically involved with someone as when you’re platonically involved with someone.”

When Jaya Bachchan said she has no problem about Navya having a child out of wedlock

In one of the episodes of What The Hell Navya, Jaya Bachchan raised many eyebrows with her controversial. Talking about modern love, the veteran actress stated that having a child out of wedlock was not a big deal. Stating how things are evolving, Jaya revealed being open about live-in relationships. She also told Navya that the latter could have a baby without marriage. In her words:

“I'm looking at it very clinically. Since there's a lack of that emotion, the romance today, I think you should marry your best friend. You should have a good friend, you should discuss and say, ‘Maybe I'd like to have a child with you because I like you, I think you're nice, so let's get married because that's what society's saying'. I have no problem if you have a child without a marriage also, I really don't have a problem.”
