As she looked around the door, Navya Naveli Nanda pointed ahead of her, apparently their car. As the paparazzi told them to wait for the photos, Jaya quickly walked to her car. Navya didn’t pose either and followed Jaya to the car. For their outing, Navya wore a neon green T-shirt, blue jeans and sneakers. Jaya opted for a cream and blue outfit with matching heels. She also carried a bag and wore a mask.
Recently, Jaya participated in Durga Puja celebrations hosted by Ayan Mukerji’s family in Mumbai. On Ashtami, she visited the pandal and was teased by actor Kajol for not taking off her mask. In a clip, shared online, Kajol told Jaya, “Mask utarna padega (You have to take off your mask).” While at first Jaya laughed, she eventually posed for photos with Kajol without the mask.
Jaya and her daughter Shweta Bachchan were part of Navya’s latest episode of the What the Hell Navya podcast. Jaya recalls an incident where Navya lied to her. “Navya was out. And I can’t sleep until the kids come back. I keep getting up. I can walk in the dark. So it was really late. I asked security, ‘Navya baby aagaye (Navy baby is back)?’ They said, “Nahi, magar unka security aagaya (No but his security is back),” Jaya said.
She added: “I was worried and I would never do this, but I called her. I said, ‘Navya, where are you?’ She said she was in her room. So, I got out of bed, I closed my door, and I went out, and madam was coming. Navya said, “It was bad. It was a situation very delicate.”
Fans will see Jaya in Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The film also features Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, and Shabana Azmi. Led by Karan Johar, the film will be released in 2023.
