More about” The Archies”
Along with Suhana and Agastya, who are rumoured to be in a relationship, The Archies will also feature late actor Sridevi and film producer Boney Kapoor’s younger daughter Khushi Kapoor. Directed by Zoya, and co-written by the filmmaker, Reema Kagti and Ayesha Devitre, The Archies is a musical drama set in the 1960s. The music for the film is composed by Ankur Tiwari and the Islanders.
Last year, Zoya had spoken about adapting the feature film from the Archie Comics. She had said in a statement, “It is super exciting to take these beloved characters and introduce them to a new generation but still keep the nostalgia of the original comic alive. We have set it in the Anglo-Indian community in India and can’t wait to transport you to the magical, fictional town of Riverdale.” The film is expected to release on Netflix next year.
