Agastya Nanda, the rising sensation, has been garnering widespread attention for all the right reasons as he steps into the shoes of Archie Andrews in Zoya Akhtar’s The Archies. The makers unveiled his character poster, describing him as ‘thoda boy next door, thoda dil ka chor’.
At a recent interaction, on being asked how similar he is to his character, he revealed, “Something that we do share in common is our love for music. Archie loves music. It has the ability to make you feel and deal with a lot of emotions and that’s where we are kind of similar”.
Speaking about his role model, Agastya added, “My role model is my dadi, Ritu Nanda. She isn’t with us anymore, but I have always aspired to be like her. She just had this warmth about her that if you were around her, you could feel like you could do anything. I wish to be like that, to give people around me all that positivity and love.”
The series is slated to release on Netflix, on December 7.
