Le Bal des Débutantes is the annual debutante ball that brings together 25 girls aged 16 to 22 belonging to prestigious families from around the globe.

Navya Naveli is the daughter of the 72-year-old actor's first born Shweta and her Delhi-based businessman husband Nikhil Nanda.

In a video posted on YouTube by news agency AFP, an excited Navya is seen gearing up for the event. "I have never done anything like this before so I'm very very nervous but very excited," she says.

"I'm going to be taking dance lessons so that my dancing is upto the mark... I'll also walk around on heels in my bedroom to make sure that I don't fall over," Navya adds.

When asked if Amitabh Bachchan will be attending his granddaughter's big day, Shweta Bachchan Nanda says, "He's so busy. He's doing so many things, but they are the apples of his eye, his grandchildren, so we hope he'll be able to make it and to see her in this way. It's a first for all of us and we're all very excited."
