Suhana Khan, the daughter of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, is all set to make her debut. Here’s how we unveil the first look of Suhana as Veronica Lodge, and Agastya as Archie Andrews. The new show is an adaptation of Archie Comics’ “Riverdale” and is produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
“It’s a little surreal actually. We have been working on this for such a long time and come to this point,” Akhtar said. “It’s great because I think it’s a film that would be loved by people of all ages. Music is universal and Archie has always been about music. All ’90s kids can get ready to take a nostalgic ride with the return of Archie Andrews. Well, not exactly, but with a different twist. Netflix released the first look at its upcoming film, based on the Archie Comics characters and reportedly directed by Zoya Akhtar, on Saturday. The cast includes newcomers Agastya Nanda (grandson of Amitabh Bachchan), Suhana Khan (daughter of Shah Rukh Khan), and Khushi Kapoor (daughter of Sridevi).
The Archies Trailer
Zoya Akhtar takes a different approach in The Archie’s. With the flick set in a college campus, the director has roped in seven young actors to play out the story. Juhi Chawla, Rajat Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Ronit Roy and Ratna Pathak Shah also join hands with Karthik Aryan and Parvin Dabas.
The Archie’s series is an upcoming OTT movie by Zoya Akhtar. This cast announcement trailer features seven happy friends, chilling in the woods, looking forward to an exciting and thrilling narrative. Apart from the star kids, this OTT movie also features Dot., Mihir Ahuja, Vedang Raina and Yuvraj Menda. The Archies series has a retro vibe to it, with all the ingredients of a classic high school entertainer. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, this movie is slated for release on an OTT platform next year.
Speaking about this project, Zoya Akhtar had previously said, “I am super excited to have the chance to bring The Archie’s to life. It was a large part of my childhood and teenage years. The characters are iconic and globally loved, which is also why I am a little nervous.”
