SRK posted the trailer and wrote, "A contemporary subject with timeless characters, #TheArchies... thrown into a world that is very fable-like. Zoya has created such an innocent and pristine quality to the film—maybe just like our world could be with a more responsible outlook towards the environment. All the best to the entire team involved with this sweet and meaningful fun film!"

Karan Johar reflects on Zoya Akhtar's filmmaking journey

Meanwhile, Karan Johar also wrote a lengthy note on Zoya's journey in the movies and how she has come a long way. The filmmaker stated that Zoya and he were childhood companions. She was always the more seasoned expert. KJo went to write that so much for nepotism and privilege; she had more actors decline roles in her film after waiting seven years to begin production. Still, Zoya was able to make Luck by Chance, the year's most critically acclaimed film, thanks to her dedication and determination. Despite being pressured to compromise her beliefs, Karan revealed that she was forced to make it shorter, cut off driving scenes from a "road trip" movie, and include an item song. She went on to direct Zindagi Na Milegi Na Dobara, his favourite film of hers. She ignored criticism from others and followed her intuition, resulting in a critically acclaimed, award-winning film.

Karan went on to write that everyone has a path, and the world was at Zoya's feet after Gully Boy's massive success, but when she needed a boost of confidence, she remembered her beloved comic book from her childhood. The filmmaker could have made a movie with a cast of A-listers, but instead she stuck to her principles.

He praised her by writing that her core belief, as depicted in the trailer, seems to be spot on. Her guidance has been invaluable for these seven young actors, and he is thrilled for Zoya and the amazing group of artists she is working with.

The Archies stars Agastya Nanda as Archie Andrews, Suhana Khan as Veronica Lodge, Khushi Kapoor as Betty Cooper, Mihir Ahuja as Jughead Jones, Vedang Raina as Reggie Mantle, Aditi Saigal (Dot) as Ethel Muggs, and Yuvraj Menda as Dilton Doiley.
