While Archie Comics Is Ready To Go Bollywood, We Have The Perfect Starcast
Posted On 13th March, 2018 @ 18:01 pm by Mihika Jindal



We all read Archie and tons of other comics growing up. But why we mention Archie in particular is because most of us tried to look for a Jughead or a Veronica in our own friend circles. But we never found the perfect match because Riverdale was too fancy, and their lives almost unachievable (because none of our fathers allowed us to take their car to high school, and we were still wearing knee-length dull grey/blue skirts instead of hot miniskirts).


But what the official handle of Archie Comics tweeted earlier this month totally blew our minds—they are going Bollywood! 



The Archie Comics team has collaborated with Graphic India to make a live action movie—Bollywood ishtyle! And considering an international (or homegrown for that matter) comics has never been adapted into Bollywood ever before, this has got both Archie and Bollywood fans raving. 


“We are supremely excited to partner with the great team at Graphic India to bring Archie and his friends to Bollywood,” Jon Goldwater, the CEO of Archie Comics told the online publication, Variety.


You know what’s getting us even more excited? Imagining who in Bollywood will be able to justify these iconic characters. After racking our brains for a while, we have a wish list (of sorts) right here:


Archie Andrews: Ranbir Kapoor

Because his rosy cheeks and charm never fails.  





Betty Cooper: Ileana D’Cruz

Because how will you ever resist that cute face!





Veronica Lodge: Alia Bhatt

Because there is no one who can match her style.





Jughead Jones: Rajkummar Rao

Because who better than him to give zero fu*ks…when he wants.





 Reggie Mantle: Varun Dhawan

Because, “Main dikhta hoon sweet, innocent, swami type ka na ... lekin actually hoon bahut bade harami type ka.
