The release of “The Archies” has ignited a diverse range of responses, with superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter, Suhana Khan, winning acclaim for her acting prowess. However, the film’s mixed reviews have also brought forth criticism, particularly targeting Agastya Nanda and Khushi Kapoor for their performances, labeling them as less-than-impressive actors. In the midst of this, Bollywood veteran Raveena Tandon found herself unintentionally entangled in a social media storm.
A post critiquing the acting skills of Agastya Nanda and Khushi Kapoor was noticed by users, and to the surprise of many, it received a ‘like’ from Raveena Tandon. The seemingly innocuous ‘like’ set off a flurry of speculation, with many interpreting it as Raveena indirectly endorsing the criticism against the young actors.
Quick to address the brewing controversy, Raveena took to her social media platform to provide clarity on the matter. She asserted that the ‘like’ was not a deliberate endorsement of the criticism but, rather, an inadvertent error while scrolling through her feed. Raveena stated, “Touch buttons and social media. A genuine mistake has been blown out of proportion. The like was made in error, and something that I was not even aware of that had been pressed by scrolling.”
The incident sheds light on the intense scrutiny faced by star kids in the film industry, where every social media activity is scrutinized and dissected. The criticism directed at Agastya Nanda and Khushi Kapoor has been particularly harsh, with some even declaring the demise of acting after witnessing their performances on screen.

With second films already in the pipeline, their journey in the film industry promises to be an intriguing one, potentially reshaping perceptions and dispelling initial criticisms.
