It seems another star kid (or should we say star grandkid?) is all set to enter Bollywood. Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda wants to be an actor and has been prepping for it, according to a Mumbai Mirror report. He’s 19 and has a huge fan-following on social media. It is believed that he’s already got film offers but will take them up when he feels he’s ready. He was recently spotted attending aunt, Neetu Kapoor’s birthday party. He’s also a fitness freak and works out in their in-house gym.
His mother Shweta had earlier revealed that she doesn’t want her daughter, Navya to go through something that her brother, Abhishek has gone through in his career. Elaborating on the same, she shared, “Absolutely yes! I’m on Instagram and I follow my brother and know the hate he gets. Whether you like him as an actor or not, it will bother to me as a sister. I hated it, it gave me sleepless nights and I don’t want yet another member of my family to be in this business for selfish reasons. Firstly, I don’t know what Navya’s talent is. Just because she is related to some famous people, doesn’t mean she has what she takes.”
Talking about Amitabh Bachchan, the actor spoke about Jagdeep’s demise recently. “Last night we lost another gem. Jagdeep… the actor of exceptional comedic repertoire, passed away. He had crafted a unique individual style of his own… and I had the honour of working with him in several films… the more prominent ones in the eyes of the audience being ‘Sholay’ and ‘Shahenshah’,” Bachchan wrote on his blog.
“Adopting Jagdeep as his film name was such a gracious factor that exhibited the unity in diversity of the country. There were many others at the time that did similar… the eminent and distinguished… Dilip Kumar, Madhubala, Meena Kumari , Jayant – Amjad Khan’s father, a giant of a actor… and many many others…” he added.
