The Indian film adaptation of the beloved Archies Comics is getting ready to take over the screen and the stream on Netflix! Set in the 1960s, the film, through the lens of the unique Anglo-Indian community, takes audiences to the fictional hilly town of Riverdale. The coming-of-age musical explores friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak, and rebellion. The Archies’ story follows the lives of Riverdale’s favorite set of teenagers – Agastya Nanda stars as Archie Andrews, Khushi Kapoor plays Betty Cooper, while Suhana Khan is Veronica Lodge. Mihir Ahuja plays Jughead Jones’ character, Vedang Raina will be Reggie Mantle, Dot as Ethel Muggs, and Yuvraj Menda is Dilton Doiley.
Director Zoya Akhtar said, “I am extremely excited for audiences to step into Riverdale in the 60s, meet the young Anglo-Indian kids on the block, and groove with The Archies gang!”
