Agastya Nanda, the grandson of Bollywood legends Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, is set to embark on his film career with Zoya Akhtar's "The Archies." In "The Archies," Agastya takes on the central role of Archie Andrews. During a recent event, the 22-year-old actor expressed his gratitude to Zoya Akhtar for selecting him for the role and revealed that he had to audition for it.
Agastya, the son of Amitabh's daughter Shweta Nanda and Nikhil Nanda (son of Ritu Nanda, daughter of Raj Kapoor) also shared insights into his life and influences.
When questioned about his biggest role model, he spoke affectionately of his late grandmother, Ritu Nanda, saying, "I would say my role model is my dadi Ritu Nanda. She is no longer with us but she is a person I've always aspired to be like. She just had this warmth about her. If you were around her, you would feel like you could do anything. And I wish I could do that for the people around me, give them that positivity and love." Ritu Nanda passed away in 2020.
Interestingly, Agastya mentioned that he's not on Instagram, but he does have a secret account to check out reels. He humorously admitted that he's not very proficient in managing his Instagram presence, relying on his sister and mother for support in that department.
The highly anticipated film, which has been eagerly awaited by fans, is finally set to make its debut, streaming exclusively on Netflix starting December 7.
