Avantika is starring in a brand new Disney Channel Original Movie!
The young actress, who you may recognize from Disney+’s Diary of a Future President, plays Rhea in the new movie Spin.
The film follows Rhea (Avantika), a relatable Indian American teen who discovers her passion for creating DJ mixes that blend the rich textures of her South Asian culture and the world around her. Her life revolves around her eclectic group of friends, Molly, Watson and Ginger, her after-school coding club, her family’s Indian restaurant, and her tightknit, multigenerational family, which includes her father Arvind, younger brother Rohan and her grandmother Asha. Everything changes when she falls for aspiring DJ Max, and her long-lost fervor for music is reignited. Rhea discovers that she has a natural gift for creating beats and producing music but must find the courage to follow her true inner talent.
Spin also stars Anna Cathcart as Molly, Kerri Medders as Ginger, Jahbril Cook as Watson, Abhay Deol as Arvind, Meera Syal as Asha, Aryan Simhadri as Rohan, and Michael Bishop as DJ Max.
