Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has written a heartfelt letter to his granddaughters Aaradhya Bachchan and Navya Naveli Nanda. In his letter, Big B has talked about the gender issues and challenges the two girls may be facing in their future. The megastar is a proud grandpa of Abhishek Bachchan’s daughter Aaradhya and Shweta Bachchan’s daughter Navya Naveli. Bachchan pointed out that though the two girls enjoy a rich legacy, both will have to face judgments and opposition from the society. He asked the girls not yo bog down against anything.
He tells them both to “make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom” and “never worry about log kya kahenge”.

While it’s difficult to be a woman in this world, he says, the reality can be changed by girls like his granddaughters. Revealing the reason behind putting the letter on Twitter, Big B said that he shared it because it is not a letter meant for both of them but “all granddaughters.”
“You both carry a very valuable legacy on your tender shoulders – Aaradhya, the legacy of your pardadaji , Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan…and Navya, the legacy of your pardadaji , Shri H P Nanda…. Both your pardadaji ‘ s gave your present surnames celebrated fame, dignity and recognition ! Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls…women ! And because you are women people will force their thinking, their boundaries on you,” writes in his letter.
