Navya Naveli Nanda, the daughter of Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Nikhil Nanda, holds a close bond with her grandmother Jaya Bachchan. The grandmother and granddaughter duo is quite popular on social media as a young Navya often posts their pictures on her social media handles.
The 25-year-old entrepreneur hosts a weekly podcast with her mother and grandmother Jaya Bachchan called What The Hell Navya.
In the latest episode, which was titled Modern Love: Romance & Regrets, Jaya was seen talking about physical attraction in a relationship. The veteran actress also mentioned that she has no qualms if her granddaughter decides to have a child without marriage.
Calling physical attraction and compatibility ‘very, very important’, the Silsila actress reflected on the old days and how people from her generation couldn’t experiment, however, the younger generation has that opportunity.
“People will find it objectionable coming from me but physical attraction and compatibility are also very important. Our times we couldn’t experiment but today the generation does and why shouldn’t they? Because that also is responsible for a long-lasting relationship. If there isn’t a physical relationship it’s not going to last very long. You can’t be lasting on love and fresh air and adjustment, I feel. It’s very very important,” Jaya Bachchan said on ‘What The Hell Navya’.
The 78-year-old veteran actress continued, “Sometimes it’s a pity but a lot of the younger lot, of course, we never could, we couldn’t even think about it but the younger generation even after me, Shweta’s generation, Navya’s is a different ballgame, but they would feel guilty going through that experience and I think it’s very wrong. It’s okay and then you do things on the sly. If you had a physical relationship and you feel that still, my relationship otherwise not worked out you can be nice about it.”
During her appearance at ‘What The Hell Navya’, Jaya Bachchan also spoke about romantic relationships in the present generation and stated, “I’m looking at it very clinically. Since there’s a lack of that emotion, the romance today…I think you should marry your best friend. You should have a good friend, you should discuss and say, ‘Maybe I’d like to have a child with you because I like you, I think you’re nice, so let’s get married because that’s what society’s saying’. I have no problem if you have a child without a marriage also, I really don’t have a problem.”
On the professional front, the veteran actress will be seen next in Karan Johar’s romantic drama Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
