Shweta Bachchan Nanda, daughter of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, proved that she is much more than her surname when she launched her fashion line, MxS World in collaboration with designer, Monisha Jaising. It was a proud moment for the Bachchan and Nanda clan as Shweta did not follow the footsteps of her star family and had taken a different profession as her career, in which her interests lied. Thanks to Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s social media feeds, we would frequently get glimpses of the personal life of the Bachchan clan. But very rarely we used to get glimpses of the life of the Nanda clan. (Also Read: Raveena Tandon Drops Precious Then-And-Now Memories Of Daughter Rasha Thadani On 'Sweet 16' Birthday)
Now, with Navya Naveli Nanda making her Instagram profile public, we are often treated with lovely glimpses of the Bachchan as well as the Nanda clan. Inherited with her mother, Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s flair for fashion, her father, Nikhil Nanda’s sense in business and the Bachchan clan’s phlegm and determination, Navya is a star-kid to look up to. Navya doesn’t hold herself back when it comes to expressing her love for her family and even fighting the trolls, who target their loved ones.
To mark Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s 47th birthday, Amitabh Bachchan and Navya Naveli Nanda posted heartfelt wishes for her on their respective social media profiles. Big B dedicated a then-and-now post to Shweta, with a father-daughter picture from her childhood and the other one was a recent one. With the pictures, Big B tweeted, "Daughters be the best... and thank you all for the greetings for Shweta." Navya posted a throwback family picture with Shweta, Nikhil Nanda and Agastya Nanda in the frame. To wish her mom and dad on their birthday, Navya captioned the post as "Happy birthday mom and dad. Nothing better than you." Navya also posted a throwback picture from her childhood, to wish Shweta on her birthday.
Sometime ago, Navya Naveli Nanda was interviewed by Vogue and on a social media post, the star-kid was quoted about the influence of ‘working women’ on her and growing up around such strong ladies in her family. On the post, a netizen had dropped a comment, “What work does her mother do? LOL.” To which, Navya had replied, "@tarakaursingh2 She's an author, writer, designer, wife & mother" followed by a smiley face emoticon. Sharing a screenshot of the comment, Navya had written on her IG story, "Being a mother and a wife is a full-time job. Please don't discredit women who are homemakers. Their role is so crucial in the upbringing of a generation that will hopefully support their contribution instead of tearing it down."

Unlike her star Bachchan family, Navya Naveli Nanda won’t join the film industry but instead is gearing up to start working with her father, Nikhil Nanda, in the family business (Escorts Limited). Navya, who had graduated from Fordham University, New York in May last year with a major in digital technology and UX design and launched her women-centric health tech company, Aara Health in 2020, expressed the sense of pride she is feeling in being the first woman in her family to take the lead in the family business. In her interview with the Vogue, Navya said, “I would be the fourth generation of the family taking the lead—and the first woman. It is a great sense of pride for me to be carrying forward this incredible legacy left behind by my great-grandfather HP Nanda.”
A few days ago, when Nikhil Nanda had received the Best CEO award in the automotive sector by Business Today, his daughter, Navya Naveli Nanda had penned a proud note for her dad, praising him for being an inspiration and speaking about carrying his legacy forward. Sharing pictures of Nikhil, Navya had written, “You always say “never lose sight of the ground you walk on” - and you’ve lived by those words. But today we celebrate you! Your dedication. Your commitment. Your ambition. To not only build a better company, but a better India. So here’s to you riding the roughest wave, and surfing through it with more grace & strength than we’ve seen before. Cannot wait to carry forward this incredible legacy you have built, and I’m proud to be your daughter! Love you Dad, keep inspiring us all and congratulations on your big day!! G.O.A.T.” (Also Read: Konkona Sensharma And Ranvir Shorey Reunite For Son, Haroon's 10th Birthday, He Shares Happy Picture)
