The one complaint always levied at Bollywood is that it is a close-knit industry that prefers to give big-budget debuts to insiders and star kids instead of talented outsiders. The top debuts in the past few years have been Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Ananya Panday, Ishaan Khatter and Tara Sutaria. Besides Sutaria, all the other actors mentioned above are star kids, so to speak.
Now, Filmfare reports that Jaya Bachchan’s grandson, Agastya Nanda is set for his big Bollywood debut.
“Agastya Nanda has grown out to be a good-looking young boy. It was but obvious that filmmakers would surely vouch for him. The young lad has grabbed a big opportunity with an acclaimed filmmaker in Bollywood. Obviously, the family made sure that the Bachchan grandson takes the right decision and hones his skills the right way. The filmmaker is more than happy to have this talent underwings and surely has big plans to make the official announcement soon,” a source revealed, according to Filmfare.
One would have expected Navya Naveli Nanda to be the one to make a Bollywood debut seeing as how she is quite popular on social media but it appears that it is the other Nanda who is ready to enter Bollywood. We’ll just have to wait and watch.
