For the uninitiated, Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda has founded the NGO, Project Naveli, and also happens to be the co-founder of Aara Health, an initiative that aims to establish and build awareness about feminine health in India. 

Nanda recently featured on Vogue Magazine to discuss the topic of women empowerment when someone asked her about the work her mother Shweta Bachchan Nanda does.

In an interaction on Aara Health’s Instagram page recently, Nanda touched upon issues about being in the spotlight due to hailing from a film family and also women facing mansplaining.

She said in the interaction, “When you are meeting new people for work and talking to them, there is always that…not worry of what they are going to think of you but more internal, where I feel like, ‘Oh, we need to prove ourselves.’ Especially because in the space that we are in, it is largely dominated by men.” She added, “So whenever we are put in the spotlight, talking to a vendor or a doctor… All of us have been in situations where we are talking to somebody, most likely a man, who is mansplaining and talking to us in a very condescending manner.”
