Amitabh Bachchan’s Granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda Opens Up On Facing Mansplaining; Says, ‘The Space That We Are In, It Is Dominated By Men’
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda is one of the co-founders of Aara Health, an online platform for women to discuss health issues. Navya recently went live on Instagram with other three founders where she spoke about being undermined. Navya revealed that they being the woman in the male-dominated industry often face mansplaining. Navya stated that the space they are in is largely dominated by men.

On her Instagram live, Navya said, “When you are meeting new people for work and talking to them, there is always that...not worry of what they are going to think of you but more internal, where I feel like, 'Oh, we need to prove ourselves.' Especially because in the space that we are in, it is largely dominated by men.” So whenever we are put in the spotlight, talking to a vendor or a doctor... All of us have been in situations where we are talking to somebody, most likely a man, who is mansplaining and talking to us in a very condescending manner.”

She further added, “It is those situations where you feel like you need to prove yourself and you don't necessarily do because it is just stupid. But we have all been in those situations and I think that is where the anxiety comes from, which is, 'Why is this person talking to me like I am stupid?' That is where I feel like, 'Okay, I need to prove myself.’ I need to make that impression in the beginning that I know what I am talking about and I don't need you to explain every single thing to me and talk to me in a condescending manner.”



Earlier announcing her company, Navya had written in an Instagram post, “Building and growing your own business gives you an indescribable sense of independence & joy; one I am fortunate enough to experience. 2021 is going to be an exciting year, and in addition to everything we are already doing, we are also solidifying our focus on preventative care and wellness - we can’t wait to share all the exciting things we have coming up VERY SOON.” (ALSO READ: Amitabh Bachchan's Granddaughter Navya Nanda CONDEMNS NCW Representative's Remarks On The Badaun Rape Case; Says 'WTF' In Utter Disagreement)
