Recently it was reported that Zoya Akhtar is launching Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter, Suhana in a digital project. As per the report the project is based on an international comic book, Archie. Now Pinkvilla reported that the filmmaker will also launch two more star kids in the film, Boney Kapoor and Sridevi’s daughter, Khushi and Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson, Agastya Nanda.
The tabloid also quoted as a source saying, “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”.
The report also suggests that Suhana and Khushi will play Betty and Veronica respectively. Zoya is presently developing the script and will take the film on the floors by this year.
“With so much uncertainty around the theatrical medium, Zoya will complete her digital venture first and only then move onto her much-awaited gangster drama, which is said to be featuring Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif in lead,” the source added.
Meanwhile, Zoya is also working on the much talked about Salim-Javed documentary for Netflix.
