"Everyone knows you. You stand for what is right, always. You stand for what you believe in. And what you believe in, you 100 percent back. You are a very strong woman with a very strong identity, which is difficult considering you are married to my father, who is also a very larger-than-life person. You still hold your own. You have your own identity, own opinions, your own convictions… You are very exacting of everybody in your life, especially your children… You don't take any nonsense… For someone who is a very tiny thing, you pack a lot of punch, mother."

Earlier in an interview with the ETimes, Navya Naveli Nanda and her mommy, Shweta Bachchan had opened up about their equation with each other. During the interview, Navya had revealed that her mother, Shweta is the best conversationalist among her nani, her and her mother. Talking about who's the most unfiltered lady between the three of them, Navya had mentioned:

"I would say, my mom. She's actually really well read, like you heard. She also listens to a lot of podcasts and I think she knows a lot about current affairs. She can talk to anybody about absolutely anything. I think she's probably the best conversationalist in the family. I think that question has a very self-explanatory answer. It’s definitely my nani is the most unfiltered. But it's a trait we really respect her for, as well."


Navya Naveli Nanda's podcast, What The Hell Navya is currently streaming on IVM Podcasts and various audio streaming platforms.
