Bollywood veteran Jaya Bachchan has no qualms if granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda has a child out of wedlock.
Jaya made the comments in her granddaughter’s podcast What The Hell Navya. “I have no problem if you have a child without a marriage…really don’t have a problem,” Jaya said. “I’m looking at it very clinically. Since there’s a lack of that emotion, the romance today…I think you should marry your best friend. You should have a good friend, you should discuss and say maybe I would like to have a child with you because I like you, I think you’re nice, so let’s get married…I have no problem if you have a child without a marriage… I really don’t have a problem,” she said.
The veteran Bollywood actor also spoke about how any romantic relationship was destined for doom without physical attraction. “People will find it objectionable coming from me but physical attraction and compatibility are also very important. Our times we couldn’t experiment but today the generation does and why shouldn’t they? Because that also is responsible for a long-lasting relationship. If there isn’t a physical relationship it’s not going to last very long. You can’t be lasting on love and fresh air and adjustment…”
Jaya is counted amongst the finest actresses of her generation. She is married to megastar Amitabh Bachchan who she has two children: Abhishek and Shweta. Navya is the latter’s daughter.
