Amitabh Bacchan, Sri Devi and Shah Rukh Khan are among those timeless Bollywood superstars and celebrities who dominated Indian cinema for several decades. Now their next generation is about to start their silver screen chapter. These trendy star kids are Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson, Sridevi’s daughter, and Shah Rukh’s daughter. And director Joya Akhtar’s movie ‘The Archies’ is going to make this historic event happen. Let’s get to know a bit more about this intriguing phenomenon.
Star Kids About to Debut in the Film Industry
Agastya Nanda, son of Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Bachchan, is going to start acting in a full-length film. The 21-year-old actor is getting soaked in the love of Bachchan fans along with congratulations from his grandfather. Agastya’s father Nikhil Nanda is the chairman and managing director of Escort Group, an engineering company in India.
Agastya’s co-star will be Khushi Kapoor, the youngest daughter of late Sridevi, a sensational beauty and talented Bollywood actress of the ’80s and ’90s. The 21-year-old Khushi has already owned a huge fan group on the internet. Her elder sister Jahnavi Kapoor is also a well-known actress and musician. Their father Boni Kapoor is a renowned Bollywood filmmaker and producer.
Another surprise is Suhana Khan, the second child of Bollywood King Shahrukh Khan and Gauri Khan. Suhana is the only sister of elder brother Aryan Khan and younger brother 9-year-old Abram Khan. Suhana has already acted in a short film called The Gray Part of Blue in 2019. Like the other two Star Kids, she is also a well-known face on the internet.
Joya Akhtar Directing The Archies
Joya started directing movies in 2009 with the Hindi movie Luck by Chance. She came to the attention of mainstream film fans and critics in 2011 with the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. In 2015, she co-founded Tiger Baby Films with Indian film director and screenwriter Reema Kagti. She is the only female film director to have won the Filmfare Award for Best Movie Direction twice.
Her journey on the popular OTT (over the top) platform Netflix began with the 2018 anthology film Lust Stories. The Archies movie is going to be her second work for Netflix. On April 18, 2022, she shared a picture of the first day of shooting ‘The Archies’ from her social media profile.
The Indian Version of Archies Comic
The Archies film is going to cover ‘Archie’, a popular American comic book, published in 1941. John Goldwater published it where the main characters were teenagers, drawn by Bob Montana. The stories have been broadcast as film, live-action dramas, and animation series.
This time Tiger Baby Films of Joya Akhtar and Reema Kagati is going to make a musical film in the Indian version of this comic. Sharad Devaranjan of Graphic India will also be in the co-production along with them. Nikos Andritasakis will be responsible for the director of photography of the film.
Fans are waiting with great expectation to see the three kids’ performances who are descendants of their favorite stars. Joya Akhtar’s movie ‘The Archies’ is not just the emergence of some new faces in Indian cinema. The debut of some new stars is going to happen with infinite possibilities.
Perhaps following the success of their predecessors, the names of Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, and Suhana Khan will continue to resonate in the Indian film industry in the next decades.
