Jaya Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan recently talked about the different phases of their lives and their relationship with money on Navya Naveli Nanda’s podcast ‘What the hell Navya‘. In the latest episode, which dropped on Saturday, the trio discussed everything from Jaya and Shweta’s first paycheck to how Navya, not her brother Agastya Nanda, “manages money” at home.
During their conversation, Shweta Bachchan, who is now an established columnist, author and entrepreneur, also revealed an interesting story of her early days in Delhi after her marriage. She talked about when she moved to the nation’s capital after getting married to Nikhil Nanda and how difficult it was to manage her own expenses as a teaching assistant in a kindergarten, where she earned around Rs 3,000 a month .
In the podcast, the 48-year-old blamed her mother Jaya Bachchan for not “educating” her about finances from an early age. She revealed that she used to borrow money from her brother Abhishek Bachchan during her college and school days. She admitted her relationship with money was “really bad”.

“I was borrowing money (from Abhishek Bachchan) not only from university but also from school… to buy food, and food. When you are in boarding school, it is (the food) the first commodity you can’t do without…. I was never educated on all that (financial management). Then when I got married, and I was in Delhi, I got a job as a teaching assistant in a kindergarten, Learning Tree. There, I got a salary, I think it was Rs 3000 per month. I put it in a bank…”, did she say.
Additionally, Shweta said it was her daughter Navya who manages day-to-day expenses and maintains a Microsoft Excel sheet of their finances.
“I don’t manage my company’s finances (even now). But I understand (the financial side). I would never want you (Navya) to be like me. I’m very happy that you and Agastya are very aware Even now , in our house, Navya manages the money (daily expenses), even I look at it (family finances listed on an excel sheet)…my ignorance of finances has not reached you (Navya) …it’s something about the numbers, I just see them and I get nervous,” she added.
