Shweta Nanda pleads, “Give my daughter her private life back” in an open letter!

Legendary superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s grand-daughter Navya Naveli has become quite a famous name thanks to her sizzling hot pictures and videos that get circulated everywhere. But, this fame has affected mother Shweta Nanda who is not too happy about all the uncalled for attention being showered on her young daughter.

Shweta has written an open letter pleading to let her daughter enjoy her life and not make her personal life a public issue. She feels that the constant pictures and videos of her daughter being used in various publications is not the right way to go about and that she wants her daughter to have a normal life away from all the prying eyes of the paparazzi.

Here’s what she wrote, “You do not know my daughter, the websites that post her pictures with captions like ‘Navya Nanda HOT pics’ or ‘Navya Nanda parties with friends, WILD’! certainly do not know her either. Nor, might I add, do they have her permission to post her private pictures. She is not a public figure. Yes, she is related to some very famous people, but that is something completely out of her control. She is a teenager, and as most young teens are wont to do, she likes to dress up, hang out with her friends, pose for pictures and yes, go out to parties (she has a deadline and is always home well before it is over). If she finds herself on a beach, she will wear beach-appropriate attire — namely, a swimsuit — as would any young girl anywhere. If there is music, she will dance much like her peers would. She will pout, she will preen, she will hang out with boys — the last time I checked, absolutely normal teenage behaviour. What if it were your child? Whether adults who run these sites even know how invasive and inappropriate is what they are doing? In effect, they profit off pictures stolen from my daughter’s life. If there is rock- bottom, this would be it.”

She ends this letter full of angst with some words of hope saying, “But I can write about it in the hope that the people peddling this nonsense have some shame or at least accountability, though I highly doubt they will. Perhaps if they understood that we, just like them, are human beings, trying to get about our everyday lives while making sure we give respect to the love and affection people show members of our family, couldn’t they in return give my daughter her private life back?”

As a mother, her concerns are quite valid. Let’s see if things change for the teenaged beauty after this heartfelt letter.
