Apart from Suhana, Agastya and Khushi, The Archies also stars Vedang Raina, Dot, Mihir Ahuja and Yuvraj Menda. It is a teen-musical film based on the American comic book series of the same name.
Set in '60s India in a fictional town called Riverdale, The Archies is a coming-of-age film following the lives of the town's favourite set of teenagers — Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie, Ethel and Dilton. Seen through the lens of the unique Anglo-Indian community, The Archies explores friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak and rebellion.
Alongside Suhana Khan, the film features Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, Vedang Raina, Mihir Ahuja, Aditi Saigal, and Yuvraj Menda.
Who's in the cast of The Archies?
Agastya Nanda as Archie Andrews
Riverdale's teenage Casanova, Archie Andrews is charming and endearing. He has a passion for music and enjoys playing with his band The Archies. Though selfless and loyal, he's torn between his feelings for Betty and Veronica. He also wears his heart on his sleeve — something that tends to get him into trouble often.
Khushi Kapoor as Betty Cooper
Betty Cooper is the adorable girl next door. She's determined, kind, and can do anything she wants — except get Archie for herself. Betty loves to journal, work at her dad's bookstore, and help her mom with baking. She can find the good in anyone, which makes her the most reliable and lovable friend of all.
Suhana Khan as Veronica Lodge
The richest girl in town, Veronica Lodge knows what she wants and won't let anyone walk over her. Ronnie is trendy and sassy, and the boys love her. She has a rare kind of confidence that makes her stand out in Riverdale's old-world charm. Her mansion is second only to the size of her heart; generous to a fault, she loves her friends dearly and is the closest to Betty.
Vedang Raina as Reggie Mantle
He's good looking and he knows it. Reggie is the wisecracking jokester of the gang. Self-absorbed, quick-witted, and secretly sensitive, he doesn't always reveal his feelings publicly. He has a secret crush on Veronica but that doesn't stop him from dating the rest of the girls in Riverdale. No one could love Reg as much as he loves himself!
Mihir Ahuja as Jughead Jones
A foodie best recognized by his insatiable appetite and interesting choice of headwear, Jughead is Archie's best pal. But unlike his easygoing friend, he's terrified of girls. Surprisingly sharp and witty, he prefers to march to his beat. When he's not behind the drums for The Archies, Jughead works at Pop Tate's, Riverdale's favourite local diner, often eating more than he serves.
Yuvraj Menda as Dilton Doiley
The brilliant Dilton Doiley is the smartest and most fashionable teenager in Riverdale. Dilton can always be found studying a new subject or working on an invention in his room and is constantly schooling the gang with his cleverness. But behind that breezy exterior, Dilton has a secret that no one knows about and struggles to come to terms with it.
Archies is streaming on Netflix India.
