MUMBAI: Amitabh Bachchan's granddaughter Navya graduated from college in New York on Wednesday, and therefore the former took to social media to pen a congratulatory message. Big B shared how they celebrated Navya's big day at his Jalsa home since the graduation ceremony has been stalled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Granddaughter Navya .. the day of utmost importance in the life of a young student - Graduation Day ..! She graduated from College in New York, but ceremony and presence got cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown.
"She couldn't go .. we too had all planned to be together with her on this important occasion .. but she though wanted to wear that Graduation gown and cap .. so staff stitched her an impromptu gown and cap .. and she wore it and celebrated at home in Jalsa. So proud of you Navya... God bless .. such a positive and happy attitude. Love you," Big B wrote.
The veteran superstar is very close to all his grandchildren and is often seen uploading throwback pictures of his family in his social media handle. In an interview earlier, the actor also claimed that he likes taking advantage of his authoritative post and loves to spoil his grandchildren. Due to this, their parents are also not in the position to oppose him!
Along with the post, he shared a video in which Navya is seen wearing a home-made graduation gown and cap.
Earlier in the day, Navya's mother Shweta Bachchan too took to social media to wish her.
"Class of 2020 - Navya finished college today and since she and everybody else graduating this year won't get a ceremony we decided to DIY one. With a graduation cap made up of chart paper and a gown hand stitched from scraps of a black tenting. I threw on a Fordham ( her college ) sweatshirt over my PJ's!! Congratulations baby I love you and am proud of you! Go forth and conquer x ( I'm not crying you're crying)," Shweta posted.
