Amitabh Bachchan is himself quite the legend in Bollywood. But now, his granddaughter is creating a sensation in the media with constant social media updates of pictures of herself partying with the who’s who of the next generation of Bollywood.
This sort of exposure has media outlets assuming that Navya Nanda, will soon be making her way into Bollywood herself. This is now fueled even further given her recent graduation from school. As it common with star kids, or star grand-kids in this case, Bollywood is almost always in the cards post schooling.
So at a press event for his upcoming film ‘Te3n’, Amitabh Bachchan was straight out asked about his granddaughter plans for Bollywood. Here is what the icon had to say.
“I have no idea, I am hearing this from you. I don’t think she will work in Bollywood any time soon. She is still studying,” – Amitabh Bachchan on Deccan Chronicle
Bachchan, who is the utmost professional when it comes to the industry and maintains the utmost object behaviour is never one to give into gossip or rumor mongering. So it’s refreshing to see him shutting down the incessant gossiping of media outlets by providing a definitive answer.
It’s a strange industry where most media outlets posting and comment on the Instagram pictures of under-age children of Bollywood stars, rather than reporting on legitimate film news. Here’s hoping that there are no further analyzing of the career plans of young kids, and a more strict editorial oversight on what is considered ‘Bollywood News’.
