Shweta Bachchan, Agastya had argument with Navya Nanda after her ‘guests coming over’ comment: ‘How could you say that’

Writer Shweta Bachchan has revealed that she and her son Agastya had an argument with her daughter Navya Naveli Nanda about a recent comment she made about their family dynamics in an interview. In an interview with She The People, Navya had revealed that whenever guests come over, it is expected of her to entertain them and not her brother Agastya.

Shweta Bachchan is the daughter of actors Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan. She is also the elder sister of actor Abhishek Bachchan and married to businessman Nikhil Nanda of Escorts group. Navya is an entrepreneur and Agastya is expected to join Bollywood soon as well.

Now, explaining the real situation at home in during a live session with journalist Barkha Dutt, Shweta said that it was actually her who did all the work while both the kids just sat around looking ‘cute’. “We had a big argument with her. Navya, Agastya and myself. We said, ‘how could you say this about us? This is not how our house works’.” Navya added that Shweta had indeed been very fair with both of them and both the kids are asked to help out at home. 

Navya had spoken about her family in the interview last month. “I’ve seen it happen at home where if we have any guests over, my mother will always say just go and get this or go and get that and I have to play the host as opposed to my brother, who could also be doing the same thing,” she had said.

“So I think specially in homes where you live with joint families, that responsibility of learning how to run the house or learning how to take care of guests or learning how to play host is always somehow put on the daughter. And I have never seen that importance being given to my brother or a younger boy in the house. I think that itself is ingraining women into believing that it’s our responsibility to look after the house,” she had added.

Shweta, however, accepted that she is harder on Navya than Agastya. “My mother tells me that you are way harder on Navya than you are on Agastya.” Navya added, “That’s true. I will a 100% agree with that.”

Trying to explain why she does that, Shweta said, “I feel it is way tougher for women, especially for Indian women. They have to be made of stronger stuff. As a mother it is a protective instinct. I have to make her strong enough to face the battles you’re going to have to face.”
