In the latest episode of What The Hell Navya Season 2, the discussion centered around the family members' expressions of emotions. Navya Nanda opened up about her own journey towards becoming more expressive, recounting her reaction to watching her brother Agastya Nanda's debut film The Archies' trailer. She admitted, "I cried when I saw his trailer."

Agastya playfully retorted to his sister, suggesting that shedding tears wasn't the sole measure of emotional expression. Their mother, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, chimed in, recalling Navya's emotional outpouring after viewing the trailer, teasingly remarking that she "ugly cried." Jaya Bachchan added her perspective, noting Navya's widened eyes and copious tears.

Continuing the conversation, Navya, ever witty, quipped, "Even Agastya is a sad crier." However, Jaya ji disagreed, drawing a comparison between Agastya's crying style and that of his uncle, Abhishek Bachchan, stating, "He cries like Mamu."


Agastya and Navya also disclosed how their mother, Shweta, was known for being the “worst crier” in the family. Reflecting on Agastya's response to her tears, Shweta remarked, “He’s merciless to me.”

Agastya addressed his sister, saying, “No, because you and mom have the same trait. If someone’s talking to you and they try to get a point across, you guys will start crying.”

Navya explained that their tears often stemmed from frustration. However, Agastya retorted, “So, instead of talking about the point, we have to fix your emotions now. We can't talk about the issue anymore.”

When asked if she cried when frustrated, Jaya ji replied, "No, I get angry when I'm frustrated."
