It was a nostalgia trip recently when celebrated designers Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla shared old and unseen pictures of Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Bachchan’s wedding to Nikhil Nanda. It was spectacular to see a young Shweta dressed as a bride and a beautiful one at that. There were also pictures of the bride posing with brother Abhishek Bachchan and the proud parents Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan performing wedding rituals and it was a time warp we needed. Not to mention the throwback pictures also proved that even then Shweta could turn a muse and how! But just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, we came across a picture and Navya Naveli Nanda is our favourite thing about it.
Well kind of! Cause the star kid isn’t really in it but she is in mom Shweta and that makes it even more endearing. Yes, it’s a picture where Shweta is pregnant and seated beside mom Jaya and it’s cuter than words. Check out the adorable picture here.
1997: Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla designed their first ever wedding and created a new standard for celebration. For the wedding itself they broke with tradition and made white the epitome of bridal elegance! The duo dressed Shweta Bachchan Nanda in a delicate, white Chikan ensemble. Crafted in real silver and antique gota borders with Zardozi embroidery at the hem, the dress exquisitely complemented the bride’s fragile beauty. Seen with her is Jaya Bachchan wearing an entirely embroidered saree featuring Chikan jaali work in the Tagar flower motif. On her big day, Shweta mesmerized in a veil made of real flowers to complement her mother’s saree. This photograph was clicked four days before she gave birth to her daughter, Navya Naveli. @shwetabachchan @navyananda Photography: @ashok.salian #33YearsOfAJSK . . . #abujanisandeepkhosla #abujani #sandeepkhosla #memorylane #journey #memories #milestones #highlights #anniversary #design #fashion #Indian #traditional #shwetabachchan #bridal #white #Chikankari #gotawork #Zardoziwork #flowermotif #Chikanwork #jayabachchan #shwetabachchan #naavyananda

Interestingly, it was only after four days that Navya was born. Don’t believe us? Here, hear it from the horse’s mouth. And while you’re at it, check out Navya’s reaction as well. Hint: we are not surprised!
Navya Nanda is now studying in New York’s Fordham University. She did her higher schooling from the UK. She was in the same school as Aryan Khan. Navya Nanda has also been linked to Meezan Jaafari, Javed Jaafari’s son. However, the young man dismissed the rumours. He told Mumbai Mirror, “We are from the same friends’ circle. She’s my sister’s bestie and a really good friend. I’m not in a relationship with anyone.” Stay tuned to BL for more updates and scoops!
