Vedang Raina made his acting debut in Zoya Akhtar's The Archies, which also starred Agastya Nanda, Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor, Mihir Ahuja, Yuvraj Menda and Dot. Even after getting a limited time on screen among the more popular star kids, the actor managed to make a space for himself and was praised by fans for his performance.

In the midst of this, there have been whispers about Vedang being a part of Jigra, starring Alia Bhatt. When asked about the confirmation or denial of the news, the actor decided to keep mum.

The Darlings actress wrote in her announcement post, “From debuting in a Dharma production to now producing a film with them, in many ways, it feels like coming full circle from where I started. Every day is a different day… exciting, challenging (and a little scary)… not just as an actor but also as a producer as we bring this film to life, and I CANNOT wait to share more as we move forward”.
