Amitabh Bachchan once stated at the NDTV event that he said that he considers menstruation a ‘sign of recreation.’ Dia Mirza and Rashmika Mandanna were also there. Adding to that, Navya said, “As he mentioned, it’s a sign of life. That’s not something that we should be ashamed of, or shy away from. 

"Although menstruation has long been considered taboo, progress has been made. Being on stage now discussing periods with my grandfather is development in and of itself. We have advanced, not only as women but as a nation, as evidenced by the fact that we are here on a podium with plenty of people watching us and discussing menstruation openly," Navya added.

She said, "It's amazing that males have engaged in this goal to make menstruation a destigmatized subject, as well as women. More crucially, at home, as that is where change always starts. Prior to discussing their bodies in public, women should first feel secure and at ease in their own homes. I was fortunate to grow up in a family where I felt at ease having these discussions.

In the meantime, Navali Navya Nanda has decided to continue the legacy of her paternal side of the family by starting her own business. The first episode of Navya Nanda's podcast, What the Hell Navya, recently premiered. 

She discussed several unique ideas with her mother, writer and entrepreneur Shweta Bachchan Nanda, and her grandmother, veteran actor Jaya Bachchan. The 31-minute podcast featured a variety of topics covered by the three.
