Navya Nanda, the granddaughter of Amitabh Bachchan graduated from college in New York on Wednesday, and the former took to social media to pen a congratulatory message. Big B shared how they celebrated Navya’s big day at his Jalsa home since the graduation ceremony has been stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Grand daughter Navya .. the most important day in the life of a young student – Graduation Day .. ! She graduated from College in New York, but ceremony and presence got cancelled because of corona and lockdown.
“She could not go .. we too had all planned to be with her on this important occasion .. but she though wanted to wear that Graduation gown and cap .. so staff stitched her an impromptu gown and cap .. and she wore it and celebrated at home in Jalsa .. So proud of you Navya.. God bless .. such a positive and happy attitude. Love you,” Amitabh Bachchan wrote.
Along with the post, Amitabh Bachchan shared a video in which Navya is seen wearing a home-made graduation gown and cap.
Earlier in the day, Navya Nanda’s mother Shweta Bachchan too took to social media to wish her.
“Class of 2020 – Navya finished college today and since she and everyone else graduating this year won’t get a ceremony we decided to DIY one. With a chart paper cap and a gown hand stitched from scraps of black tenting. I threw on a Fordham ( her college ) sweatshirt over my PJ’s!! Congratulations baby I love you and am proud of you! Go forth and conquer x ( I’m not crying you’re crying),” Shweta posted.
