Her father was a state transport bus driver in West Bengal until 2017, and she has had to take care of the family after he retired. "Everything I do is for my parents. They've not had an easy life, and I want to ensure my father gets comfortable. He's driven a bus for many years and now I want life to be a little easy for him."

She began working with coach Minara Begum at age eight until 2019 when Begum retired. Begum even paid for her living expenses when Nayak first moved to Kolkata for training in 2004. "My parents couldn't have afforded my sports career. [Begum] took care of my stay, food, other expenses and pocket money."
