All this while we had been focusing on Navya Naveli Nanda, wondering if she would ever make a career in Bollywood, and here’s her younger brother, Agastya Nanda, who has stated that he is already keen on working in the film industry. Needless to say, Grandpa Amitabh Bachchan is very happy hearing the news. With star kids on their way to make their much awaited Bollywood debut such as Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, and now Ananya Pandey, seems like there’s another one in the pipeline. However, if you’re wondering that you’ll get to see the handsome lad on screen, you’re sadly mistaken. The boy is more keen on direction than acting and wants to thus pursue a career in the former.
Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying that Agastya’s grandparents, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, are extremely happy to hear about his passion and are very supportive of it. It seems like Agastya is interested in film-making and has already made a film which will be released on Youtube very soon. A source close to the Bachchan family was quoted by a leading entertainment portal as saying, “Amitji is very keen to see Agastya become the third-generation actor in the Bachchan parivar. But Agastya shows a natural tendency for direction. In fact he has just completed a short film which has turned out really well. Agastya not only wrote the script and directed his film, he also composed the background music for it. When Amitji and Jayaji saw the film they were bowled over. They now feel Agastya could be the first filmmaker in the family. Athough if truth be told, Jayaji has been prodding her son Abhishek to move into direction for the longest time,” the source said.
While Agastya seems keen on joining Bollywood in the near future, albeit as a director, Navya, in the past, has said that she has no plans of debuting in Bollywood. Perhaps, it goes without saying that in a family that is known to have some great actors, having a director, and someone who has no plans of making a career in Bollywood, comes as a refreshing change. Meanwhile, Agastya is still quite young and is pursuing his studies abroad. However, he is very keen on pursuing a career in Bollywood.
