Navya's mother and Amitabh's daughter Swetha Nanda in her column in the DNA slammed the media for depriving her daughter of her private life. Swetha writes,
'She is a teenager, and as most young teens are want to do, she likes to dress up, hang out with her friends, pose for pictures and yes, go out to parties (she has a deadline and is always home well before it is over). If she finds herself on a beach, she will wear beach-appropriate attire - namely, a swimsuit - as would any young girl anywhere."
"Websites with a keen interest in Bollywood and its goings-on, make fake identities (mostly in the names of her friends) and send requests to anyone following her and often to her as well. They then plunder the accounts of her friends and use their photos to post on their websites captioning them irresponsibly and disrespectfully, most of them stop short of objectifying and shaming her."
