Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar wraps the shoot for Netflix’s feature film adaptation of The Archies. The film will be produced by Tiger Baby Films and Graphic India, starring Agastya Nanda, Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor as Archie Andrews, Veronica and Betty respectively alongside others.
Sharing the pictures of wrap-up party on her social media profile, Zoya Akhtar captioned her post, “Archieeeeeessssss! Film Wrap. Best Crew. Best Cast. Only Gratitude #TheArchiesonNetflix @reemakagti1 @angaddevsingh_ @tigerbabyofficial @ArchieComics @graphicindia @netflix_in @dotandthesyllables #AgastyaNanda @khushi05k @mihirahuja_ @suhanakhan2 @vedangraina @yuvrajmenda”
Comic book characters Archie Andrews and his friends are set for an Indian film version. Acclaimed filmmaker Zoya Akhtar will direct a coming-of-age, live action musical set in 1960s India based on the teenagers of Riverdale.
The feature film adaptation of the Archie comics, which are hugely popular on the Indian subcontinent, will be produced by Akhtar and Reema Kagti for Tiger Baby and Sharad Devarajan for Graphic India.
A little while ago, the makers had dropped a teaser for the film, where Suhana was seen sporting long black hair, like Veronica, while Khushi sported bangs. Agastya didn’t have Archie’s famous red hair, but he did appear to have had his locks curled in the character’s style with a slight red tinge.
The Archies, also starring Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Vedang Raina and Yuvraj Menda will stream on Netflix in 2023.
