Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan, Sridevi-Boney Kapoor’s youngest Khushi Kapoor and megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda have begun shooting for ‘Archie Comics’ film adaptation.
The trio will be marking their Bollywood debut with the upcoming Netflix musical, helmed by Zoya Akhtar. Pictures from the sets of the film have gone viral on social media.
As seen in the photos, Khushi’s look resembles that of Betty from ‘Archie Comics’, while Suhana seems to be playing Veronica.
Agastya’s elder sister Navya Nanda was also spotted in the pictures from the set.
Set in the 1960s, the upcoming film will be a live-action musical set and introduce Riverdale to a new generation in India.
Zoya Akhtar’s company Tiger Baby Films will also co-produce the project with Graphic India.
Last November, Zoya had announced the new project starring these popular starkids. She said: “I am super excited to have the chance to bring The Archies to life. It was a large part of my childhood and teenage years. The characters are iconic and globally loved, which is also why I am a little nervous.”
She went on to add, “I have to make sure the film stokes the nostalgia of a generation that grew up on the comic and yet resonates with the young adults today.”
Unlike the American teen drama ‘Riverdale’, this new adaptation will get a ‘Desi’ twist.
