Agastya Nanda’s Ekkis is touted to be a biopic of the 1971 war hero, Arun Khetarpal.

Agastya Nanda recently made his acting debut with Zoya Akhtar’s The Archies.

After his acting debut with The Archies, Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda is now all set to prepare for his second movie. If reports are to be belived, the star kid has bagged his second movie, Sriram Raghavan’s Ekkis. It is touted to be a biopic of the 1971 war hero, Arun Khetarpal and will also star veteran actor Dharmendra in a key role.

Reportedly, Agastya is reading the script these days and will begin shooting for this film next month i.e. January 2024. “December and the first half of January will be spent by Agastya in reading the script and also doing some workshops to rehearse for the schedule ahead. Sriram wanted a young actor to play the part of Arun Khetarpal and feels that Agastya fits the role like a hand in a glove. After months of prep, Sriram and Agastya are now all set to commence the journey of bringing the heroic tale to the big screen,” a source close to the film told India Today. However, it should also be noted that the young actor has not made any official statment regarding his second movie as of now.

Agastya Nanda recently made his acting debut with Zoya Akhtar’s The Archies. The film also marked Bollywood debuts of Suhana Khan and Kushi Kapoor. Besides these, the Netflix film also starred Mihir Ahuja, Vedang Raina, Dot and Yuvraj Menda in key roles.

Showsha’s review of the movie and Agastya’s performance in it read, “Agastya as Archie is an interesting choice and he proves why he was chosen. Given the subjects that Zoya was handling, Agastya fits perfectly in the look and feel of Archie. Suhana and Kushi as Veronica and Betty shoulder every scene with balance, allowing each other to take the spotlight when they need to shine. Suhana lights up the screen every time she pops in. Khushi, on the other hand, makes you forget about her glam social life on Instagram with her simplistic performance.”
