Wearing couture gowns and their brightest smiles, 25 young girls from renowned families of the world will gather in Paris on November 28 for the high-society Le Bal des Débutantes — and Navya Naveli is one of them.
The granddaughter of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has stayed away from the spotlight until now, but what is awaiting her in Paris this year is an exceptional event.
In a behind-the-scenes video by AFP, an excited Navya is seen prepping for the A-list event. “I have never done anything like this before so I’m very very nervous, but very excited,” she said.
“I’m going to be taking dance lessons so that my dancing is upto the mark and I will be going through fittings to make sure my dresses are fine. I’ll also walk around in heels in my bedroom to make sure I don’t fall over,” she added.

A Parisian make-up artist can also be seen in the video. He revealead that he will be using just the right tones to make Navya look natural and sophisticated.
Girls of Navya’s generation don’t need an introduction to formal society like in the days before Facebook and Twitter. However, the ball has retained the sophisticated glamour of the past. Each girl gets one top couture designer to provide a dress for her, and Navya got Dior.
When asked whether Big B will be attending his granddaughter’s big day or not, Shweta said, “He’s so busy. He’s doing so many things, but they are the apples of his eye, his grandchildren. So, we hope he’ll be able to make it and see her in this way.”
“It’s a first for all of us and we’re all very excited,” she added.
Busy or not, this sight will surely be something Amitabh Bachchan and the rest of the family will not want to miss.
