is the Indian adaptation of archies going to blow our minds?

hey tribe!

this seems a bit unbelievable but hey we are finally getting our very own adaptation of Archies. let's find out what we know about it so far.

On May 14, Netflix announced the cast of the upcoming adaptation of the upcoming adaptation of Archies directed by none other than Zoya Akhtar. guess what? this next gen adaptation of Archies is going to be played by the kids of some of the most iconic Bollywood legends. Suhana Khan, Shah Rukh Khan’s very own daughter and maybe one of the most popular star kids in B town.

Agastya Nanda, the grandson of legends Amitabh Bacchan and Jaya Bacchan, and Khushi Kapoor, daughter of the late icon Sridevi will be joining Suhana Khan as the iconic trio of Archie, Betty, and Veronica. While there has been no official announcement of who will be playing what character, the video released with a peppy number has them in full costume making it easy for us to guess! it seems like Nanda will be playing the titular role of Archie with Khan as Veronica and Kapoor as Betty. Mihir Ahuja, Yuvraj Menda and Vedang Raina will also be joining the cast.

at the occasion of the video release, Shah Rukh Khan also took to twitter to give some genuine advice to his daughter, telling her to remember that she is never going to be perfect and to not let the applause get to her head.

the actors dancing to the tunes of Ankur Tiwari’s original track takes us back to a time of bursting happiness, youth and first loves. As fans of Archies, young and old, this adaptation has struck a chord. we hope this is a drama that reflects the youth of today and tomorrow with all its complexities and substance.

the show will arrive on Netflix in 2023.
