Suhana Khan will make her much-awaited Bollywood debut as Veronica Cecilia Lodge in Akhtar’s 'The Archies'. Veronica, also known as Ronnie and Ron, is an unrivalled fashionista and Archie’s love interest.
Khushi Kapoor is also making her debut with Akhtar’s next, and will be seen playing one of the leading characters—Elizabeth “Betty" Cooper. Betty is the beautiful, blue-eyed blonde who just adores Archie and is Veronica's best friend.
Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda is the main protagonist of the movie and plays the titular character. His character is the red-headed lover guy who is the love interest of both Veronica and Betty.
Best known for his performances in movies like 'Bard of Blood', 'Super 30', and 'Stage of Siege'—Mihir will be playing the character of Jughead, Archie’s best friend.
The film also stars singer and songwriter Aditi Dot, who’s the daughter of late Indian rock musician Amit Saigal. She might play the role of Midge Klump, Moose Maison's longtime girlfriend.
Another young talent spotted in the trailer is Yuvraj Menda. Going by his on screen look, he could be playing the nerdy teen, and the youngest in the Archies gang, Dilton Doiley.
Just like Menda and Dot, Raina’s character has not been disclosed yet. Going by speculations, he might be playing the character of Reggie Mantle, who’s known for being self-obsessed and never missing a chance to mock Archie.
