May 07 : It was a happy day for the Bachchan family, and Abhishek Bachchan took to his Instagram handle and expressed it.
The actor felt proud for his niece Navya Naveli Nanda and congratulated her on her graduation. Navya graduated from New York's Fordham University, and mamu Abhishek wrote a heartfelt message expressing his proud moment. Sharing a picture of Navya in her impromptu graduation gown, Abhishek also mentioned how excited he felt to know what the young Navya has in store for the world.
Navya, who graduated today, couldn’t celebrate her graduation as her college has cancelled the ceremony amid the coronavirus pandemic. To give her the feel of the graduation gown and cap, her mom, Shweta Bachchan, stitched her an impromptu gown and cap, which she wore and celebrated at home in Jalsa. While her cap is made of a chart paper, the black gown was hand stitched from scraps of black tenting. Navya also wore a Fordham University sweatshirt under the gown.
Amitabh Bachchan also shared a series of pictures of Navya, and congratulated his granddaughter on her achievement. Navya is Shweta Bachchan and Delhi-based businessman Nikhil Nanda’s daughter. Their son Agastya Nanda graduated last year.
