Agreeing to Big B‘s statement where he called menstruation ‘a sign of recreation’, Navya stated that it is not something that one should be ashamed of or shy away from. According to her, it has been a taboo for a long time but there has also been progress. The young diva noted that she is sitting on a stage talking about periods with her grandfather and that in itself is a sign of progress.
The fact that they are sitting on a platform today with many people watching them and having an open conversation about menstruation itself shows that we have progressed, not just as women but as a country, Navya said in the forum.
Elaborating further, she added that it is great that not just the women, but the men have also joined in this mission of making menstruation a destigmatised conversation. More importantly, at home, because change always begins at home. According to her, women should feel comfortable and safe about their own bodies in their own homes before going out in society and talking about that. The young entrepreneur also added that she was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where she felt comfortable having these conversations.
Navya has earlier made it very clear that she does not harbor any acting aspirations. In fact, she will be joining her father in running their family business.
