Zoya Akhtar is one of the directors in Bollywood who is always on the top of the dream list of actors. Her impeccable direction and narrating style prove to be both critically acclaimed and successful on the box office like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Gully Boy and Dil Dhadakne Do. She is known to mould actors according to her script and gets out the best performance from her actors. But one area where she hasn’t stepped is digital streaming platforms. But this is a partial truth because she has directed an anthology and web series with other directors for Netflix and Amazon.
But a movie directed fully by her only for a digital streaming giant has yet not arrived. But she is all ready to direct a film for Netflix, based on the comic, Archie. Talking about the case she would be launching three newcomers with her first Netflix Original film, Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda. If you didn’t know, Agastya Nanda is the grandson of Amitabh Bachchan. He always had an affection for acting and he is all excited to be launched in an ace director’s film. If reports are to be believed, he would play the role of Archie while Suhana and Khushi would be essaying Betty and Veronica.
An insider source revealed to Pinkvilla, “Agastya has always been inclined towards acting and after completing the basic education, is all geared up to live his acting dream. Contrary to the conventional mode of entering the world of showbiz, Agastya will first appear in Zoya’s directorial for the digital world and then move onto the big screen spectacles. He is already prepping for the role and if things go as planned, he is all set to play the titular role of Archie in Zoya’s feature film for Netflix.”
