Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda and Javed Jaaferi’s son Meezaan Jaaferi have been sparking relationship rumours for quite some time now. The young duo shares a fun camaraderie and their social media banter is also enough to add fuel to the fire.
Meezan, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film ‘Hungama 2’ was quizzed about his relationship status and he put the record straight as he said:
“Honestly, me and Navya are really close friends. I think because of me, like her name has come up in a lot of places and that's unfair. It's her privacy and her private life. I don't want to include her family and her in any of my (work). It's really unfair to be talking about someone else.”
Navya and Meezaan were reported to be dating each other. However, the Malaal actor denied the same and confirmed that they are just friends.
“She is just a friend of mine if your asking about what is going on. Those speculations are wrong..we're just friends. Our families have known each other for a long time because we have been in the industry for so long. So that's about it."
When asked if the dating rumours made it awkward for Meezaan to enter Jalsa - Amitabh Bachchan's Mumbai residence, he said:
“Initially, yes. Actually now it is difficult to travel anywhere in Bombay now because they know your car number..so they (paparazzi) just follow your car everywhere. The paparazzi are everywhere. They are at the airports, the restaurants, at people's houses and Jalsa is like a wonder of the world. It's like a monument in Mumbai. They are always there. I don't visit her that often. Only if there is a birthday or a function."
Infact, Meezaan added that his own family members had started questioning him and it had made things awkward for him in the beginning. He said:
"Absolutely. I think it was awkward for me to enter my own house because my parents were giving me looks. It did make it difficult in the beginning. I think we are fine now. It's been a long time since that news had come out. I last went there when they hosted a Diwali bash. The entire industry was there."
Meanwhile on the work front, Meezaan Jaaferi will soon be seen alongside Shilpa Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Pranitha Subhash in Priyadarshan's Hungama 2 will release on a streaming platform.
