Navya agreed with her megastar grandfather and said, “Like he mentioned, it's a sign of life. That's not something that we should be ashamed of, or shy away from. Menstruation has been a taboo for a long time, but there has been progress. I’m sitting on stage today with my grandfather and talking about periods, and that itself is a sign of progress. The fact that we are sitting on a platform today with many people watching us and having an open conversation about menstruation itself shows that we have progressed, not just as women but as a country.”

“It’s great that not just the women, but the men have also joined in this mission of making menstruation a destigmatised conversation. More importantly, at home, because change always begins at home. Women should feel comfortable and safe about their own bodies in their own homes before going out in society and talking about that. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where I felt comfortable having these conversations,” she added.

Navya Naveli Nanda runs a healthcare program called Aara Health. She started in 2020. She is also currently hosting a podcast for IVM called ‘What The Hell Navya'.

On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan was most recently seen in Brahmastra with Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. It had a cameo of Shah Rukh Khan with glimpses of Deepika Padukone and Dimple Kapadia. He will next star in Sooraj Barjatya’s Unnchai with Boman Irani and Anupam Kher. He has also signed Nag Ashwin’s next with Prabhas and Deepika Padukone and The Intern remake with Deepika Padukone.
