It's a day full of updates on the debut of star kids. A couple of hours ago, we revealed the title of Junaid Khan and Khushi Kapoor's Love Today remake and shared that the two have begun shooting in the city. Now making news is Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, who has been winning hearts with her podcast What The Hell, Navya! While her podcast keeps making headlines for the immersive conversations she brings to her audience, she was also part of the headlines due to a rumour suggesting she is making her Bollywood debut following her brother Agastya Nanda. 

Navya Nanda Naveli To Make Acting Debut?

Agastya recently made his acting debut with Archies, which streamed on Netflix and was directed by Zoya Akhtar. Now, the buzz has surrounded his sister, Navya Naveli, with rumours claiming she is set to make her acting debut. However, it turns out that is not the case, as mother Shweta Bachchan has now decided to shun all the rumours and confirm that Bollywood is not the way to go for her daughter. Read on to learn everything about this update.

According to the Hindustan Times, Shweta Bachchan represented her daughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, at an event in Mumbai held for podcasters. At the event, Navya won the award for Best Female Podcaster for What The Hell, Navya!, and Shweta received it on her behalf. While accepting the award, she said, "I am here to represent my daughter, and I am very excited for her and proud of her. I am thrilled to be here to collect the award on her behalf.”

Talking about her daughter's talent, Shweta Bachchan added, “I think it is wonderful; it is a great way of reaching out to people. You can carry it wherever you go; you can listen to it on a train or a bus. I think it is a fantastic and wonderful medium for getting your word across."

It was here that she was asked about Navya Naveli Nanda’s plans to enter Bollywood. Reacting to this, Shweta Bachchan said, “I think you are very well acquainted with the work Navya does, and she has her hands full. I don't think Bollywood is the way to go for her.”
