The Archies cast on the Vogue India cover
Ahead of the release, the star cast featured on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue India. During an interaction with the magazine, the cast was given a situation and asked how they and their characters would react to it. When Suhana was asked how Veronica and she would react if they attended a VIP party only to discover that you and another guest were dressed identically.
Here's what Suhana and Veronica would do:
Suhana said, as an alternative, "Veronica would have a backup option ready just in case and disappear for a quick outfit change in the middle of the party." While, in real life, she would have no objections to that, if they were close, Suhana would want a photo with them. In her opinion, that would be adorable.
The young actor was also asked what Veronica would do if she learned that her boyfriend had been sneaking into the inboxes of other girls. To which she said that Veronica has a big queue of suitors already and plans to initiate contact with other males via text message. Suhana revealed that she is the type of woman who prefers a monogamous relationship with her boyfriend, so she would end things with him.
Interestingly, Suhana, when asked if she learns that malicious gossip has been spread about her, said that Veronica would argue that the only reason anyone ever mentions her is because they can't get anyone to pay attention to what they have to say. While Suhana doesn't think she is anything like the role she plays, if that happened, she would probably have a good, long cry.
