Big B pens an emotional letter to his granddaughters

The social media went abuzz as soon as Amitabh Bachchan’s letter to his granddaughters came to light. “You both carry a very valuable legacy on your tender shoulders – Aaradhya, the legacy of your pardadaji, Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan, and Navya, the legacy of your pardadaji, Shri H P Nanda. Both your pardadaji's gave your present surnames celebrated fame, dignity and recognition!” read the letter. “Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls...women! And because you are women, people will force their thinking, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don't live in the shadows of people's judgment. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom,” Big B advised the girls. “People will talk. They shall say some terrible things. But that doesn't mean you have to listen to everyone. Never ever worry about – log kya kahenge. At the end of the day, you are the only one who will face the consequences of your actions, so don't let other people make your decisions for you,” the letter further added, “Navya – the privilege your name, your surname offers you, will not protect you from the difficulties you will face because you're a woman. Aaradhya – by the time you see and understand this, I may well not be around. But I think what I am saying today shall still be relevant.”
The letter ended on a truly emotional note, “This may be a difficult world to be a woman. But I believe that it is women like you that will change that. It may not be easy, but YOU! You can set an example for women everywhere. Do this and you would have done more than I have ever done, and it will be my honour to be known not as Amitabh Bachchan, but as your grandfather!! With all my love, your Dadaji, your Nana.”
