Netflix has partnered with Archie Comics for the 1960s-set film, a coming-of-age story that will introduce the teenagers of Riverdale to a new generation in India.
Actor Gulshan Devaiah has weighed in on the nepotism chatter seemingly sparked off by the cast announcement of Zoya Akhtar’s The Archies.
The film produced under the banner of Tiger Baby Films also stars Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan, late actress Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's younger daughter Khushi Kapoor.
The debutante has already started filming for the project and the official casting was announced on Saturday.
Akhtar took to Instagram and shared a teaser video, unveiling the cast of the film, which is set in the 1960s.
"The Archies" reportedly features Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan, Sridevi's younger daughter Khushi Kapoor and Shweta Bachchan Nanda's son, Agastya Nanda, all making their screen debut.
Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti are two such writer-filmmakers, who are also founders of Tiger Baby Films.
Zoya, Reema feel proud to have introduced fresh talents with 'Eternally Confused and Eager for Love'
The series, directed by Rahul Nair, introduces Vihaan Samat in the lead role of Ray.
The cause of his death however hasn't been revealed yet.
Gulshan Devaiah, who recently played the love interest of Rajkummar Rao in the movie Badhaai Do, tells CE why he picked a role with a short screen time.
'Eternally Confused and Eager for Love' presents the story of Ray, an awkward young man who is navigating adulthood and the daunting world of romance in the 21st century.
In a surprise development, Mammootty and Mohanlal who until lately appeared to be only helping the accused by their alleged "neutral" stand or whatever, have thrown in their lot with the survivor.
Archie Comics CEO/Publisher Jon Goldwater said he feels proud that the Archie Comics characters and stories continue to resonate with fans globally, especially in India.
