Diary of a Future President's Avantika Vandanapu To Star In New DCOM 'Spin'

Avantika Vandanapu is starring in a Disney Channel Original Movie!

It was just announced that the 15-year-old actress will take the lead as Rhea Kumar in Spin.

The new DCOM follows an Indian American teen who discovers her artistic side through the unique world of DJ culture and learns she has a passion for creating mixes that blend the textures of her Indian heritage and the world around her.

Rhea Kumar is described as an effervescent 15-year-old who lives with her tight-knit multigenerational family. After her mother’s death, she has been her father’s emotional rock, and her life revolves around her family’s restaurant, her eclectic group of friends, and her after-school coding club.

Everything changes when she falls for aspiring DJ Max and a long lost passion 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.

“We look forward to watching Avantika lead this vibrant story of a teen discovering unexpected aspirations to create, remix, perform and ultimately define her art. We’re equally thrilled to see this special story come to life in [director] Manjari Makijany‘s talented hands,” Lauren Kisilevsky, vice president, Original Movies, Disney Channel, said in a statement.

You may recognize Avantika from her role as Monyca in Diary of a Future President on Disney+. She also voices Kamala in Mira, Royal Detective on Disney Junior!
