Zoya Akhtar recalls shooting with Khushi Kapoor, Agastya Nanda

According to The Indian Express, Zoya Akhtar was recently at the International Film Festival of Goa to attend a masterclass. At the event, she spoke about shooting The Archies with Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda. The director said that she felt ‘old’ and added, “So there is one shot and Betty, being played by Khushi Kapoor, has to pick up the needle and put it on the vinyl, which is the record player, so we are there behind the camera and we see her picking it up and putting it in the center. I was like ‘what are you doing?’ She was like, ‘Isn’t that where the music comes from?’ I said, ‘no.’ And you realise how young they are.”

In another instance, Zoya recalls telling Agastya to use a landline phone for a shot. However, Agastya was clueless and asked if he will dial first and then pick up the phone. “I was like, how old am I? I asked him, ‘Have you never used it?’ He said, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Have you never seen them in films?’ He sill said, ‘no.’ These were like stunts”, she added.
