April 19 : Megastar Amitabh Bachchan's granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, like her uncle Abhishek Bachchan, knows how to handle trolls on social media. She never shies away from replying to negative comments and does it with a lot of dignity.
On Sunday, Navya took to her Instagram handle and shared an update regarding one of her social projects, Project Naveli. Navya along with some organizations inaugurated their first ‘Period Positive Home’ in Gadchiroli in Maharashtra.
Sharing pictures of the home, Navya wrote, “Our first Period Positive Home was inaugurated today in Gadchiroli. Seeing this project come to life has been so fulfilling. We are excited to build 6 more homes such as these, very soon so we can continue to fight against the age old custom of banishment to huts during menstruation. Thank you for ensuring women everywhere can have a safe and happy period.”
While many of her friends and family members commented on her post expressing how proud they were with her work, Navya’s rumoured boyfriend, actor Meezaan wrote, “Unreal! Super proud.” Tina Ambani wrote, “So proud of all the work you do Navya.” Project Naveli that was launched earlier this year, aims to empower women by addressing the issue of gender inequality in India.
However, an Instagram user doubted her intentions and wrote, “If the project meant so much to you, then where were you in the inauguration???” Replying to the netizen, Navya gracefully wrote, “I’m sure you’re aware we’re in the middle of a pandemic?”
Earlier also, on many occasions, Navya gave apt replies to trolls. Earlier, responding to a netizen who asked what Navya's mother, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, does for a living, she replied on social media, “She's an author, writer, designer, wife and mother.” She further wrote, “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.”
Earlier this year, Navya had revealed that she will not join Bollywood but instead will join her father in their family business (Escorts). She is a part of the online healthcare portal called Aara Health.
