In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, the actor opened up about his audition process, revealing that he initially vied for the role of Archie, ultimately played by Agastya Nanda. Raina confessed, “I was very invested in Archie’s character because he’s a musician just like me. I was a bit upset that I was going to be this bad guy on screen.”

However, fate had a different plan for Raina as he was cast in the role of Reggie. Initially apprehensive about playing the character, Raina soon discovered the depth and complexity within the character. “I heard the brief of the character and I realized that there’s a lot more depth to Reggie,” he added.

Soon after the release, Raina became a breakout star for his portrayal of Reggie Mantle and immediately was a sensation on social media. After that, the newbie signed Jigra starring alongside Alia Bhatt. Directed by Vasan Bala and co-produced by Eternal Sunshine Productions and Dharma Productions, the film will release in September 2024.
