The latest rumour doing the rounds is that Amitabh Bachchan's grandson Agastya Nanda is getting ready for his Bollywood debut.

But it's not true.

Sources close to the Bachchans dismiss these rumours as the "wild fantasy of idle minds."

"There is no truth to these so-called reliable reports," a source tells Subhash K Jha.

"Agastya has no interest in an acting career, at least not at the moment. He is well into academics. He has just started attending university, so the question of being launched by Karan Johar or anyone else just doesn't arise."

"And for God's sake, why Karan? So there can be more debate on nepotism and more reason to abuse him for launching one more star kid?"


And while we are at it, Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan is not looking at a Bollywood launch either.

The only star kid awaiting a launch is Saif Ali Khan's son Ibrahim Ali Khan.
