Our favourite Archie characters will soon be seen on the silver screen. However, instead of being set in Riverdale, Archie and the gang will be in Delhi. The film, directed by debutant Amit Chauhan, will be called Boys Toh Boys Hai and will star Anshuman Jha and Raj Kumar Yadav, who both debuted in Dibakar Banerjee’s Love Sex Aur Dhoka.
The story will revolve around four young guys who are all searching for love.
Anshuman is currently learning Punjabi to do justice to his sardar character while Raj Kumar’s character will play a baniya (Indian caste). Debutant Anuj Kumar will portray the role of ‘Atal Bihari Bakshi’ who is a Punjabi born in Bihar.
Boys Toh Boys Hai will maintain the look and feel of the original Archie comics by using the same colours.
The film is being produced by KE Entertainment and written by Manu Rishi of Oye Lucky and Aisha fame.
The first schedule will commence in Mumbai this month.
