Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson, Agastya Nanda, is on the verge of making his grand entry into Bollywood through Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming project, “The Archies,” in which he takes on the role of the charming and charismatic Archie. However, the intriguing question lingers: Is Agastya akin to Archie in real life, and do they share any common ground? The young star, turning heads with his recent appearance at a media event, candidly opened up about his debut in the film industry and more. When asked about the parallels between himself and Archie, Agastya unequivocally distanced himself from the character, asserting that he is far from being a Casanova, unlike Archie Andrews.
During his appearance at the India Today Conclave, Agastya delved into the depths of his portrayal of Archie, expressing profound gratitude for the opportunity he’s been given in the industry. He took it upon himself to dispel any curiosity about his real-life persona, emphasizing that he bears no resemblance to the character of Archie, whom he fondly described as the quintessential Casanova. Yet, amidst the divergence, he did concede to one shared trait: a deep passion for music.
Agastya extended heartfelt thanks to Zoya Akhtar for entrusting him with the role of Archie and relished the prospect that the film will be accessible to audiences across 190 countries through Netflix. Furthermore, he shared his camaraderie with his co-stars, including Suhana Khan, revealing that they have forged strong friendships and frequently enjoy hanging out together.
Agastya Nanda’s Bollywood debut, as Archie, promises to be a captivating journey into the world of cinema. While he may not emulate Archie’s romantic escapades, his enthusiasm for the role and his shared love for music serve as testaments to the exciting new chapter he is embarking on. With the film set to reach audiences worldwide through Netflix, Agastya’s career in Bollywood is poised to shine on a global stage, marked not only by his talent but also by the bonds he has formed with his co-stars, solidifying his place in the industry.
