Navya Naveli Nanda, the granddaughter of Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, recently walked the runway at Paris Fashion Week. Shweta Bachchan, the young entrepreneur’s mother, and Jaya Bachchan, her grandmother, were on hand to support her as she walked for the fashion label L’Oreal.
She also posted a number of pictures from the event, and one Instagram user berated her for her “poor” ramp walk and insisted that she needed more practice.
Walking for a cause, said Navya as the caption for her photo. An evening devoted to recognizing women and their strength. I appreciate @lorealparis providing me the opportunity to participate in a very unique show with all of your other global ambassadors and spokespersons. Together, we took a stroll. Women of all ages, occupations, colors, shapes, and sizes are celebrated for their variety and value. I am appreciative of the opportunity to contribute to the Stand Up initiative’s goal of safer environments for women in my capacity as Cause Ambassador for the @lorealparis family. I appreciate having the opportunity to speak on behalf of my nation and the cause I support. Anyone who may need to be reminded: YOU’RE WORTH IT. We are all deserving.
A person responded by writing, “Put some hard work into learning ramp walk next time as you weren’t the best sight there,” in the comment area. You were brave to take this step, but you still need additional training. “Okay” was the polite reply from Navya.
Internet users responded and lauded Navya’s answer to the remark. “That is so rude of you to say,” a person said. One person said, “At least she tried her hardest!!!,” while another said, “Some have the guts to do nothing but lecture others.”
Keep following your heart Navya, you shine brightest when you do, and I am so incredibly proud of you, commented Navya’s mother Shweta in response to the remark. Be unafraid. Onwards and Upwards,” to which Navya replied, “Love you mum.”
For those who don’t know, Navya is the daughter of Shweta Bachchan and businessman Nikhil Nanda. Agastya Nanda, another sibling of hers, will shortly make his acting debut in Netflix’s “The Archies.” She is Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter.
