Javed Jaffrey’s son and actor Meezaan Jaffrey, who debuted in 2019 with the romantic drama Malaal, has often been asked about the nature of his relationship with Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda. And in a recent interview with ETimes, the artist opened up about their connection.
Stating that he and Navya are just friends, the actor said, “Navya and I are very close friends, and I think because of me his name has appeared in a lot of places and it’s unfair, you know. It’s her private life and her private life and it’s unfair to talk about anyone at this point. And she’s just a friend of mine if you ask what’s going on. Our families know each other for a long time because we’ve been in the industry for so long.
Meezaan then explained how he became friends with Navya in the first place. The actor said he knew her through his sister: “She is my sister’s best friend and they are both studying in New York. Well, they are both now back in Mumbai. .
Meezaan also added that it was odd to walk into both Navya’s house and her own home when speculation about their relationship started to circulate, but concluded that everything was fine now – “It was awkward to to visit him (Navya) in Jalsa, and it was awkward to visit my own house because my parents had started looking at me It was a bit difficult at first, but I think we are fine now.
On the work side, Meezaan is eagerly awaiting the release of his second film, Hungama 2.
