Daughter Navya's reaction to pregnant Shweta Bachchan's picture is epic
Designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, who are celebrating their 33rd work anniversary, recently shared a throwback photo of Jaya Bachchan and a pregnant Shweta Bachchan Nanda. The picture was clicked in December 1997, just four days before Shweta gave birth to her firstborn, daughter Navya Naveli. Unsurprisingly, the picture has gone viral, but Navya's reaction is the best of all.
In the picture, Shweta is seen wearing a delicate, white chikan ensemble. It was crafted in real silver and antique gota borders with zardosi embroidery at the hem. On the other hand, Jaya complemented her with an embroidered saree featuring chikan jaali work in the Tagar flower motif. "This photograph was clicked four days before Shweta gave birth to Navya," wrote the designers.

The throwback picture, especially the caption written by Jani and Khosla, managed to catch Navya's attention, who wrote "OMG (Oh My God!)" in her comment. To this, Shweta replied, saying, "Ya, four days later," indicating that the photo was taken on December 2, 1997.
The designer duo also treated us with bewitching pictures from Shweta's wedding with businessman Nikhil Nanda in February 1997. To note, Shweta's wedding was their first event ever, where they designed her bridal wear, and also the look of the Bachchans. "It was a huge honor to have Mr. and Mrs. Bachchan entrust us with such an important occasion in the family," they wrote.
1997: A heartfelt thank you to Mrs. Jaya Bachchan for sharing these pictures from Shweta and Nikhil's Sangeet with us. Their wedding was the first ever event done by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and the duo handled everything from decor to ensembles for each function for the entire Bachchan family. The Sangeet was an ode to Tradition at it's glorious best. And the ensembles a tribute to classical elegance and masterful craftsmanship. Shweta Bachchan wore a sumptuous gold brocade khinkhaab ghagra with gold zardozi vasli in a leafy tendril pattern. "It was a huge honour to have Mr and Mrs Bachchan entrust us with such an important occasion in the family. That they also gave us complete creative freedom was priceless. It allowed us to dream and execute to our hearts' content and bring to life an absolute fantasy“ - Abu and Sandeep @shwetabachchan @bachchan @nikhil_nanda #33YearsOfAJSK . . . #abujanisandeepkhosla #abujani #sandeepkhosla #memorylane #journey #memories #milestones #anniversary #design #fashion #original #couture #always #classic #handmade #handembroidery #traditional #shwetabachchan #bridal #gold #brocade #khinkhaab #ghaghra #classical #traditional #zardozi #vasli #tendrilpattern #shwetabachchan #abhishekbachchan #nikhilnanda
Going further in their post, the duo mentioned that Shweta's wedding was quite special for them given their emotional bonding with the Bachchans. "Jaya is like our sister, we're like Shweta's mamas. We've known her and Abhishek since they were in their teens, so doing this wedding went beyond work for us. It'll always hold a very special place in our hearts," they wrote.
1997: More from the spectacular wedding of Shweta Bachchan and Nikhil Nanda! "Jaya is like our sister and we are like Shweta's mamas. We've known her and Abhishek since they were in their early teens, so doing this wedding went beyond work for us and it will always hold a very special place in our hearts"Nikhil and his family were very close to us and our first interiors project was redecorating their home. So this wedding meant a lot to us. It was the first event we ever got to design from end to end. We had a great time. It was a fantastic creative and emotional experience!"- Abu & Sandeep The duo channeled their devotion to detail into every aspect of the fabulous arrangements. Both the couture and the decor reflected the magic of their maximalist philosophy. For the wedding ceremony, they created ensembles that were a celebration of regal grace and handcrafted embroideries. Shweta Bachchan wore a velvet ghagra and blouse in maroon. Tiny booties embroidered in resham, badla and crystals filled the lehenga. A French net dupatta with a floral border completed this deliciously romantic ensemble. And for the mother of the bride, Jaya Bachchan, an exquisite red bandhini ghagra sari with lavish floral zardozi embroidery. @shwetabachchan @nikhil_nanda @amitabhbachchan @bachchan #33YearsOfAJSK . . . #abujanisandeepkhosla #abujani #sandeepkhosla #memorylane #journey #memories #milestones #anniversary #traditional #bridal #red #velvet #ghaghra #maroon #blouse #resham #badla #crystals #frenchnet #bandhanighaghra #floral #zardozi #embroidery #jayabachchan #amitabhbachchan #shwetabachchan #abhishekbachchan #nikhilnanda
Meanwhile, on a related note, there are reports that Navya will soon be dipping her toes into Bollywood. However, as per Shweta, Navya won't foray into showbiz as she wouldn't want any other member of her family to join Bollywood. "Coming from a family that was involved in movies, I know the heartbreaks. I see their faces when things don't work out," she stated.
