Navya Naveli Nanda had before raised allegations of sexism against mother Shweta Bachchan and brother Agastya Nanda, alleging that she’s expected to do household chores as her brother or other young boys at home do the same.

A couple of days ago, Navya, Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, had grabbed attention and created headlines in many news portals on her startling statement of sexism beginning at home as she quoted saying that girls being believed to do way more of the household chores, leaving little to the intuition of her remarks were directed straight at mother Shweta Bachchan and brother Agastya Nanda.

For the uninitiated, Navya Naveli had raised the statement while talking to SheThePeople, where she had expressed that she observes sexism happens at home, like when guests are over and her mother always tells her to go and get stuff or play the host as the same thing is not said to her brother, who isn’t expected to do the same stuff.

Now, Shweta Bachchan has reacted quickly to dampen the fire, opening up to a news publication during a live session, where she argued that her daughter Navya Naveli Nanda’s proclamations are completely untrue, putting in that it’s always her who does all the housework, whereas both her kids just relax in a corner looking “cute”. In the same sessions, Shweta also disclosed how she and Agastya had an immense argument with Navya Nanda, demanding to know who she could’ve said something like that about them as that’s totally not the way things at their home process.

In the same interview with SheThePeople, Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli had expanded that especially in homes, where you live with joint families, that responsibility of learning how to run the house or learning how to take care of guests or learning how to play host is always somehow put on the daughter as she has never seen that importance being given to her brother or another younger boy at home, talking on how that principles ingrains women into concluding that it’s their responsibility to look after the house.
