As India marked its 77th Independence Day with pride and fervor on August 15, 2023, Bollywood’s emerging stars lit up the occasion with a heartwarming gesture. The talented cast of the upcoming film ‘The Archies’ – including Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor, Agastya Nanda, Dot, Vedang Raina, Mihir Ahuja, and Yuvraj Menda – found a unique way to spread cheer and honor the spirit of freedom.
Turning into volunteers for the day, the Archies’ ensemble showcased their community spirit by serving regional delicacies to guests at The Bombay Canteen during a special ‘Independence Day Daawat’. With a blend of flavors served on banana leaves, the event was not only a tribute to the nation’s diversity but also a symbol of unity and camaraderie. The young stars donned aprons and served with enthusiasm, embodying the essence of the day.
The Archies, helmed by acclaimed director Zoya Akhtar, transports audiences to the enchanting setting of the 1960s in the fictional town of Riverdale. The film, a coming-of-age musical, weaves a tale around the lives of iconic Riverdale teenagers. Through the lens of the unique Anglo-Indian community, The Archies explores themes of friendship, love, heartbreak, freedom, and rebellion, promising an immersive and nostalgic cinematic experience.
