Finally! Navya Naveli reacts to nana Amitabh's letter while sharing an important decision!

Revealing what Navya Naveli told him personally about his letter, Big B said that he was happy he received a rather strong reaction from his granddaughter

A few weeks back when legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan penned a letter for his granddaughters Navya Naveli and Aaradhya, little did he expect the overwhelming response he would receive.

From celebrity parents to the aam aadmi, everybody lauded Bachchan for his words of wisdom and progressive thinking. After all, he prodded his girls to not "live in the shadows of people’s judgment. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom."

So it's only befitting that the girls themselves respond to this heartfelt letter. And while Aaradhya maybe too young to fully understand the context, it was Navya Naveli who responded with a well-meaning sentence and has made her family proud.

Revealing what she told him personally about his letter, Big B said that he was happy he received a rather strong reaction from his daughter Shweta and granddaughter Navya Naveli.

At the success party of the movie PINK, he said, "It worked as a good promotional device, but you know, promotional activity is a wide term. The letter was emotional. It addressed all daughters and granddaughters and I had such an immediate reaction from my own daughter and granddaughter. I got an immediate reaction from Navya and she said, ‘Nanu, I will exactly follow this’. My daughter (Shweta) said, ‘I have been trying to teach Navya for so many years and just through one letter, you have conveyed what I wanted to for so many years’. That had an immediate impact."

Like any young girl, even Navya it seems expressed what most want to.

3 lessons only grandparents can teach their granddaughters

The superstar's heartfelt letter to his granddaughters came into news for all the right reasons. It conveyed some very important messages and struck a chord with many young Indian girls.

It also reminded us that it is perhaps our grandparents who can teach granddaughters some critical life lessons; lessons that sometimes even parents fail to address.

#1 Follow your dreams

Just as Amitabh Bachchan's letter states, only grandparents can tell you to truly follow your own dreams and not live in the shadow of others. They want their granddaughters to make their own path and carve a niche for themselves and trust us, with the many years of life experience they can very much teach you a thing or two about survival.

#2 Do not worry about log kya kahenge

While your grandparents might have wanted their own children to go by their rules, but they wouldn't want any such thing for their grandchildren.

Most grandparents love to see their grandkids grow up as confident and independent young folks, and while they may have lived in an age where "log kya kahenge" decided everything, they wouldn't want the same fate for their grandkids, especially their granddaughters.

#3 Gender has nothing to do with success

There was a time (perhaps in some places of India, still is), where grandparents preferred a boy over a girl. But today in the 21st century, we are privileged enough to be surrounded by educated parents and grandparents who refuse to discriminate on the basis of gender.

That's perhaps why they can teach their granddaughters to not worry about the 'society' and continue working to prove themselves.
