No one was even slightly prepared a few years ago to imagine a story on Riverdale set in the Indian milieu. But Zoya Akhtar always takes up the unimaginable task, as she announced the Indian adaptation of The Archies, and soon, it became the talk of the town. The fact that it marks the debut of Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter, Suhana Khan, Sridevi’s daughter, Khushi Kapoor, and Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson, Agastya Nanda, added much more to the buzz. 

Trust Zoya to always give us content that is respectful of her audience and doesn’t take them lightly. With The Archies, the filmmaker has pulled off a pretty exciting casting as the story is about the Anglo-Indians. As we witnessed the vibrant and interesting trailer today, we thought of introducing you to the cast and also giving you a guide to the much-anticipated movie. 

Suhana Khan As Veronica Lodge

We know she doesn’t need any introduction, and you already know everything about her. But the fact that she is finally making her Hollywood debut and taking papa Shah Rukh Khan’ s legacy ahead is what makes this special. Having tried her hands at acting in a short film, The Grey Part Of Blue, Suhana is stepping into the world of feature films. She is already a popular celeb on Instagram with 4.3 Million followers. 

Khushi Kapoor As Betty Cooper

Betty, the one who believes in goodness, is our very own Khushi Kapoor, daughter of iconic Sridevi and Boney Kapoor. She is also making her acting debut after her sister Janhvi Kapoor and she is already famous for her fashion choices, with fashion experts praising her for the same. With 1.2 million followers on Instagram, Khushi certainly has a fanbase ready. 

Agastya Nanda As Archie Andrews

Agastya Nanda is the most surprising package in the trailer, as is the central character, Archie Andrews. He walks with the responsibility of living up to his grandfather Amitabh Bachchan and great-grandfather Raj Kapoor’s name, and it is enormous. He is Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Nikhil Nanda’s son and he now makes his big acting debut with The Archies. 

Vedang Raina As Reggie Mantle

Vedang Raina is already a popular vocalist known for his renditions of popular songs and he has fans for the same. He now plays Reggie in The Archies, and we might get to finally see him sing and act at the same time. 

Dot As Ethel Muggs

Another musician on the list, Dot, aka Aditi Saigal, has a legacy to serve. A singer-songwriter herself, Dot is the daughter of rock musician and Rock Street Journal founder Amit Saigal. While the trailer does not let us much into her trajectory, the glimpses of her hint at an intense character. The bonus is that she could also be credited for helping with the music album. 

Yuvraj Menda As Dilton Doiley

An influencer himself, Yuvraj Menda, who seems to be the voice of The Archies as he connects the dots in the trailer, is popular for his dancing skills on the Internet. He has been a part of multiple viral reels and is now Zoya Akhtar’s Dilton. He is also a fashion influencer.  

Mihir Ahuja As Jughead Jones 

Mihir is technically the most experienced actor on the list, as he has starred in films like Dolly Aur Kity Ke Chamakte Sitare, Super 30, Bard Of Blood, Mission Over Mars, Feels Like Ishq, and even a Hollywood project titled Cheaters in his kitty. He will be seen playing Jughead in The Archies, and this might serve as a big break for the actor. 

The Archies will hit Netflix on December 7, 2023, and this gang will be on your screens. Mark your calendars and give this new team a chance. Stay tuned to OTTplay for more.
