New Delhi: Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli will be among 25 young girls from around the world to attend the French high society’s ‘Debutante Le Bal’ in Paris on November 28.
Navya is the daughter of Shweta Bachchan and Nikhil Nanda, also the great-grandaughter of the legendary actor Raj Kapoor.
In the video posted on YouTube by news agency AFP, an excited Navya says she is nervous about the ball. “I have never done anything like this before so I’m very very nervous but very excited,” she says.
“I’m going to be taking dance lessons so that my dancing is upto the mark and also I will be going through fittings to make sure my dresses are fine. I’ll also walk around on heels in my bedroom to make sure that I don’t fall over,” she adds.
Each girl gets one top couture designer to provide a dress, and Navya is in good hands of Dior.
Navya Naveli is currently studying at London’s prestigious Seven Oaks School, where Aryan Khan, son of actor Shah Rukh Khan is also enrolled.
The family is obviously quite excited to see her daughter in the avatar for the first time. We’re not sure with such an enviable gene pool and her looks, she could be the next star-in-the-making.
