Speaking about sharing things with her family members, Navya said, "I'm always sharing. My name in the family is 'Reporter Raju' because I keep sharing info from one family member." Shweta interrupted and said, "And sometimes a little oversharing, don't know what to keep to yourself and what to..." As Jaya disagreed, Navya said, "I just share freely whatever comes to mind."
Shweta then revealed, "Navya is the most active member of our family chat" and Navya added, "After nana (her grandfather Amitabh). He is the most active member of the family chat." Jaya said, "Nana has become an active parent after your mother got married. Till then I was doing it alone, everything." Navya added, "Maybe because he feels he missed out on so much when they were growing up. Now he is doing those things with us." Jaya said, “Ya, obviously.”
