In the pictures shared by a the social media account of cafe in Ooty, Khushi and Vedang are seen posing with their fans. In the pictures, Khushi is seen donning her look from the upcoming film.
Earlier this month, in an interview with ETimes, Boney talked about how Khushi expressed her desire to work in films. He said, “Khushi had expressed her desire to become an actor after Janhvi Kapoor started shooting for Dhadak in 2018. That’s why we sent her to New York Film School in 2019. If Sridevi was around, she would have supported her like she supported Janhvi.”
He added, “Kids don’t come out with their true ambitions right from the start. They start by saying, ‘I want to do modeling and other things’. They keep getting diverted from their main ambition. Finally, when they cross the age of 19-20, the thought that they want to act develops firmly in their mind. Who doesn’t like glamour? Who doesn’t like getting attention? Everyone in the world likes it whether it is in the entertainment field, academic field or sports world.”
The Archies will also mark Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson Agastya Nanda’s film debut. Apart from Suhana, Agastya, Khushi and Vedang, the film will also star Mihir Ahuja, Dot, and Yuvraj Menda. The actors will portray well-known characters from Archie Comics.
Netflix has partnered with Archie Comics for the film, which will be set in 1960s India. The Archies is produced by Zoya and her longtime collaborator Reema Kagti under their production house Tiger Baby. Zoya announced the project on social media last year in November.

Archie comics, which feature teenage characters named Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Sabrina Spellman, have seen several adaptations over the years. Reports suggest that in Zoya’s adaptation, Suhana will be seen playing Veronica Lodge, while Khushi will feature as Betty Cooper. They were also spotted on the film’s set in March, reportedly du a costume trial.
