Amitabh Bachchan has always been keen on his family. Even the movies he picks for himself generally revolve around that very central theme.
Recently, he shared a video of his granddaughter playing the piano. In the caption, he expressed his deep admiration of her.
“Navya on the Piano.. the admiration and pride of a Grandfather towards his Granddaughter, Navya Naveli.. self taught, playing through memory.. digitally graduated, started her own business, works and constructs platforms for deprived women, apprentices on management for Father’s family business..” he wrote in praise for her, before he admitted, “and sorts out all my mobile computer glitches!!”
“Love you my dearest. Who says daughters are not an asset to the family!!!” he wrote as he was concluding.

“Love you Nana,” she wrote back, along with a heart emoji. “Always a phone call away for tech support!!!” wrote Nanda in a follow-up comment.
For the unversed, Navya Naveli Nanda is the daughter of Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Bachchan-Nanda and businessman Nikhil Nanda.
Despite being the granddaughter and niece to some of the biggest names of B-town, she has expressed no wish to make an actress of herself.
She is the co-founder of an online healthcare platform, Aara Health, as well as the founder of Project Naveli, a non-profit organisation that aims to promote gender equality. She graduated from New York’s Fordham University last year. And ultimately wished to carry her father, Nikhil Nanda’s business, Escorts Group, forth.
However, still, fans are often asking her to give a debut a thought; previously, on one of her Instagram posts, a fan commented that she was ‘beautiful’ and should ‘try in Bollywood’. Her response to that comment was, “Thank you for your kind words, but beautiful women can run businesses too.”
