Talking about his journey with The Archies and his co-actors, Vedang said in an interview, “I felt my first day was going to be stressful and I didn’t know how they were going to perceive me. I wondered if I would be able to make friends with them or will it be a professional equation. But we broke the ice from the very first day. It felt like we were a bunch of actors trying to do the same thing. It was a fantastic journey with them.”
He expressed how he felt being part of a film by Zoya Akhtar. “It is a dream come true for any actor in the industry. Even before The Archies, I have been a huge fan of Zoya Akhtar. To be directed by her is like film school itself.”
The young actor revealed his close friendship with The Archies crew when he was questioned about it, “Agastya broke the ice. I was shy and didn’t know how to talk to people, but he made me feel at home. We formed a great bond there, and I have had a great equation with everyone. All three girls were very warm. Khushi was my first friend, and that’s a really good friendship that I made.”
Alia Bhatt announced her next project Jigra, in September last year. Interestingly, the actress will not only be acting but will also be co-producing the film along with Karan Johar. Jigra is helmed by Vasan Bala.
Announcing the movie, Alia wrote, “Presenting #Jigra, directed by the extremely talented @vasanbala and produced by @dharmamovies & @eternalsunshineproduction. From debuting in a Dharma production to now producing a film with them, in many ways, it feels like coming full circle from where I started. Every day is a different day… exciting, challenging (and a little scary)… not just as an actor but also as a producer as we bring this film to life, and I CANNOT wait to share more as we move forward JIGRA – in cinemas on 27th September 2024”.
