Rumours of Meezaan Jafri and Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda dating have been doing the rounds for the longest time.

MEEZAAN JAFRI TALKS ABOUT HIS LINK-UP WITH NAVYA NAVELI NANDA
Dating rumors about Meezaan Jafri and Navya Naveli Nanda began for several reasons. They share a great bond, which became evident when Navya shared pictures that were clicked by Meezaan on social media. But, they’re just friends, clarified the Malaal actor during a recent interview with the Times of India.
He also talked about difficulties he had to face due to the same. Not only had it become tough for him to face his parents, Javed Jaaferi and Habiba Jaffery, but he also felt awkward to enter Bachchan’s residence, Jalsa.
“I last went there when they hosted a Diwali bash. The entire industry was there. Jalsa is actually a monument, you cannot be missed by the paparazzi if you go there,” he said. But, as time passed, the awkwardness has gone and he did visit Jalsa post that.
HOW DID MEZAAN AND NAVYA BECOME FRIENDS?
The two have known each other for the longest time. They became friends because Meezaan’s sister Alaviaa Jaffery is Navya’s best friend. “They both studied together in New York. Plus, our family – hers and mine – are in movies. So we know each other,” said Meezaan.
WHAT’S ON THE WORK FRONT?
Navya Naveli Nanda will soon be joining her father, Nikhil Nanda, in running their family business, Escorts. The star kid also recently launched her business venture, an online healthcare portal for women called Aara Health. She graduated from Fordham University in New York in 2020.
Meezaan Jafri made his Bollywood debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali production Malaal alongside Sharmin Segal. He will soon be seen in Hungama 2 with Shilpa Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Pranitha Subash.
