Mom Shweta Nanda reveals about Navya’s bikini show

Shweta Nanda, daughter of megastar Amitabh Bachchan penned an open letter in which she warned the media to stop following her teenager daughter Navya Naveli Nanda and cook stories about her.

She wrote in the letter, "Before I can even click a heart on it in approval, I think... the internet is going to have a field day with this one when they get their hands on it, and they eventually will! I almost pick up the phone to call her and grumble about yet another picture of hers floating all over the net, but stop myself."

Shweta said that Navya is not a public figure and media has no right to make her personal life public. She wrote, "This is why... You do not know my daughter, the websites that post her pictures with captions like ‘Navya Nanda HOT pics' or ‘Navya Nanda parties with friends, WILD'! certainly do not know her either. Nor, might I add, do they have her permission to post her private pictures. She is not a public figure. Yes, she is related to some very famous people, but that is something completely out of her control."

The protective mom says her daughter has a deadline and she always back before the time. "She is a teenager, and as most young teens are wont to do, she likes to dress up, hang out with her friends, pose for pictures and yes, go out to parties (she has a deadline and is always home well before it is over)." 

Shweta Nanda also talks about Navya’s bikini pictures, she quips, "If she finds herself on a beach, she will wear beach-appropriate attire - namely, a swimsuit - as would any young girl anywhere. If there is music, she will dance much like her peers would. She will pout, she will preen, she will hang out with boys - the last time I checked, absolutely normal teenage behaviour!" 

Shweta also throws light on Navya’s life, she wrote, "My daughter Navya likes reading, the Kardashians, rajma chawal, curling up next to her Naani while watching TV, teasing her brother and counselling her friends when their hearts are broken." 

Navya is not interested in acting, reveals her mom, "She doesn't have any particular interest in acting or pursuing a career in acting as of now. She is generous and kind and bright, but these attributes don't make fetching headlines!"

"But I can write about it in the hope that the people peddling this nonsense have some shame or at least accountability, though I highly doubt they will. Perhaps if they understood that we, just like them, are human beings, trying to get about our everyday lives while making sure we give respect to the love and affection people show members of our family, couldn't they in return give my daughter her private life back?", she concludes her letter.
