Meezaan Jaffrey 'felt awkward to enter Jalsa' after link-up rumours with Big B's granddaughter Navya Naveli

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan's granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda and Jaaved Jaffery's son Meezaan have often been in the news for their rumoured relationship.

The two often leave netizens impressed with their social media exchanges, however they have time and again maintained that they are 'just friends'.

Now, in one of his interviews, Meezaan opened up about his and Navya's link-up rumours and said that it became awkward for him to enter the Bachchan's house, Jalsa.

However, he told ETimes that the awkwardness is gone now and he did visit Jalsa again when the Bachchans had hosted a Diwali bash. The 'Malaal' actor called Jalsa a monument and said that one cannot be missed by the paparazzi there.

During the interview, Meezaan also clarified that he and Navya became friends because of his sister and Navya being best friends. His sister and Navya studied together in New York.

The rumours of their relationship first sparked off when they were spotted together in town for a movie date. However, the two never shied away from showering praises on each other on social media.
