The Archies will have its Netflix premiere later today. The film marks the debut of the third generation in the Bachchan family: Agastya Nanda, who is Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan's grandson. After Abhishek Bachchan welcomed his nephew to the movies, Big B has given a shoutout to him now. Interestingly, the legendary actor has used the Oxford word of the year, Rizz, to praise Agastya for making his debut with The Archies.

Amitabh Bachchan's shoutout to Agastya Nanda using "Rizz"

Bachchan posted a photo from the premiere night, posing with Abhishek and Agastya. He captioned it in the sweetest way, stating, "Agastya, with love and more... shine sway, you are RIZZ!!!"

Check out the post below:

Agastya Nanda's appearance on Kaun Banega Crorepati 15 and anecdote from Amitabh Bachchan

Agastya recently appeared on Kaun Banega Crorepati 15, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan. On the show, Big B revealed that his grandson once wished he could leave Mumbai for Delhi, where he resided with his parents, Shweta and Nikhil Nanda, rather than spend a single second there.

Bachchan explained that Agastya's parents left him with them when they went abroad for a trip. The loving grandfather was taking his grandson for a drive around Mumbai when he suddenly began babbling, "I want to go to Delhi." After a while, Big B noticed that Agastya was still lugging all of his bags on his shoulder, even though he had succeeded in bringing him back home. Agastya had declared, "I am going to Delhi."

Insights into Agastya Nanda's social media approach and struggles

Zoya Akhtar directs The Archies, which also includes Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor, Yuvraj Menda, Dot, Mihir Ahuja, and Vedang Raina. Interestingly, everyone from the cast, apart from Agastya, has been noticeably absent from all social media platforms. 

When asked the reason behind the same, the young actor opened up about his past struggles with social media in an interview with NDTV. He said that he used to worry too much about posting the right thing from the right angle. Although he does not consider himself artistic, he did mention that he had an idea for a "cool artsy thing" afterwards.

According to him, he had 800 followers when his account was private, and he first hit 20,000 after making it public. Unfortunately, Agastya shared that after the collage he posted, the number of followers dropped back down to 500! The result is that he stays away from it; it would be wise for him to avoid being on social media.
