Apart from them, Zoya also introduced actors Vedang Raina, Yuvraj Menda, Mihir Ahuja, and Aditi Dot characters.

Created by Zoya Akhtar, The Archies is coming soon on Netflix and is an Indian adaptation of the famous comic book. However, the release date is not revealed yet.

Zoya recently unveiled the film’s teaser that reveals that the film is set in 1964 in Riverdale, described on a railway sign as a “hill station,” a term dating back to colonial times that refers to a town located at a higher elevation than the nearby plain.

One of the transport links servicing the hill stations are small mountain railway trains running on narrow gauge tracks, known affectionately as “toy trains”, and the teaser opens with a shot of the top train puffing into Riverdale station. The Archies gang play music and dance at parties and classrooms while also enjoying their time outdoors.

The teaser also offers a glimpse of the gang — Suhana Khan, Agastya Nanda, and Khushi Kapoor — falling in love and going through heartbreaks.

The official release date of the film is still awaited.
