Shweta pens a note
Sharing the post, Shweta captioned it, "All roads led to Paris this weekend. Well, at least for my mother and me. As Navya spent all her days doing L’Oréal things. My mother and I walked and ate (more eating than roaming to be honest) The show was an experience and so emotional - my mother and I both admitted to holding back tears as our little girl walked on all smiles!!! I remember her first steps she was just a few days past her 1st birthday - like yesterday, all parents say this I’m sure, it’s cheesy, and annoying, but so true."
"She wore red, the Eiffel Tower turned pink, and we went home very proud, very emotional, and very hungry. I snuck in some M&M’s in my bag, though it’s blasphemous to eat chocolate at a fashion show, we did - because we’re worth it," concluded Shweta. Reacting to the post, Navya commented, "You both gave me the strength I needed." Zeenat Aman, Abhishek Bachchan, Shanaya Kapoor, and Farah Khan reacted with a hug face and red heart emojis.
Navya is the daughter of Nikhil Nanda, who is the chairman and managing director of Escorts Limited, and Shweta. She has a brother, Agastya Nanda, who will make his debut with Zoya Akhtar's The Archies. Navya, who is an entrepreneur by profession, runs a women-centric health tech company and often posts about her work on social media. She also hosted a podcast show What the Hell Navya where her mother and grandmother talked about various issues concerning women.
