Get ready to fall in love with the next best DJ in The Disney Channel’s Original Movie Spin.
Directed by Manjari Makijany, the film follows Indian American teen Rhea who lives a pretty normal life that revolves around her eclectic group of friends, Molly, Watson and Ginger, her after-school coding club, her family’s Indian restaurant, and her tight-knit, multi-generational family, which includes her father Arvind, younger brother Rohan and her grandmother Asha.
However, all of that changes when she meets an aspiring DJ named Max who introduces her to the world of music. She discovers her passion for creating DJ mixes that blend her South Asian culture and the world around her AND she’s a natural. She just needs to figure it out if she could fit it in her busy schedule.
In the latest trailer released, we get a glimpse of Rhea’s family life with her father running the family restaurant Spirit of India. With the passing of her mother, the family has gotten even closer as they rely on each other to manage the busy establishment, which serves as a staple in their community.
It’s really cute to see more South Asian stories be told, especially with how close and supportive they are with each other’s endeavors. I’m really looking forward to this film, especially with this amazing cast. Indian American actress Avantika (Mira, Royal Detective, Diary of a Future President) leads an international ensemble of talented veteran and burgeoning young actors, including Bollywood renowned Abhay Deol (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara) as Arvind; UK comedienne/actress Meera Syal (Yesterday) as Asha; Aryan Simhadri (Adventures in Wonder Park) as Rohan; Michael Bishop (Grace Beside Me) as DJ Max; Anna Cathcart (Descendants franchise) as Molly; Jahbril Cook (A Week Away) as Watson; and Kerri Medders (Alexa & Katie) as Ginger.
Spin premieres on August 13 at 8 pm on The Disney Channel.
