Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli turned many heads with her stylish looks and buzz-worthy pictures on social media. The speculations of her debut have been doing the rounds for quite some time.
The whole buzz around Navya’s probable entry into Bollywood has her mother Shweta Bachchan Nanda worried. Shweta has said that working in the film industry isn’t a walk in the park and that she will be worried if Navya plans to make her career in Bollywood.
“I will be worried if if she plans to be an actor. I don’t think it is as easy as it looks. You have to work extremely hard, especially if you are a woman. And I wonder if she has in her to bear with all of it.
“Also, there is a lot of failure involved, which many people don’t see. The failure is personal, your acting skills… the way you look on screen is slashed out in open,” Shweta said.
According to Shweta, the right way to become an actor is to “want and rightly prepare” for it like her mother, not “stumble” into it like her father.
“My mother was the eldest daughter in the family. She graduated and told his father about her ambition of becoming an actor. Soon she joined acting school, and was a great student.
“I feel this is the way to go about it. Not because you see this as an easy way out. Instant fame and money in this industry is a myth,” she said at the launch of ‘Standing on the Apple Box’ by Aishwarya R Dhanush, daughter of superstar Rajinikanth. Shweta has also penned the foreword for the book.
Shwetha likes to maintain a low profile, and is extremely protective about her daughter despite the constant spotlight. The 42-year-old mother of two recently wrote an open letter asking media to give her daughter her “private life” back.
“My children are no celebrities. Why smash them on internet for one reason or the other? Let them earn their attention on their own. It shouldn’t be just because they are related to somebody,” she said.
