Earlier on Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan, Shweta revealed that her daughter has no inclination towards acting and said that she 'selfishly' dissuaded Navya from entering the film industry.
She had said, "I'm on Instagram, I follow my brother (Abhishek) and I see the kind of hate and trolling he gets. Whether you like him as an actor or you don't, or you think he has got it so easy because he is Amitabh Bachchan's son, whatever it is, I am his sister. I hate it, it gives me sleepless nights. I don't want yet another member of my family to be in this business, for a selfish reason," she said.
Speaking about how merely coming from a film family was not reason enough for Navya to enter Bollywood, she had further added, "I don't know what Navya's talent is. I feel that unless she is completely driven, passionate and talented, she has no business being here. Just because she is related to some famous people doesn't mean she has what it takes."
Speaking about Abhishek, the actor will next be seen in Kookie Gulati's 'The Big Bull' and Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming production, 'Bob Biwas'.
