It's no secret that Archie Comics has decided to bring the famous comic series to India. According to a leading international magazine, “Archie Comics and Graphic India have announced plans to develop a Bollywood-style live-action film based on the Archie Comics characters.”
Doesn't that sound exciting? For years we've watched from the sidelines as comic TV shows and now Riverdale, have shown various adaptations of the Archie comics. Well, it's finally our turn! Bollywood is all set to get its own version of Archie and here are the actors we think should play the lead roles.
Archie Andrews - Siddharth Malhotra
A reverse version of Student Of The Year, where both Veronica and Betty are in love with Archie. Seems only fair to give Siddharth Malhotra the chance he deserves.
Betty Cooper - Alia Bhatt
She's cute, bubbly and everything Betty. Alia Bhatt fits this role like a glove and we are all rooting for this miracle.
Jughead Jones - Ali Fazal
Ali Fazal from Fukrey was the perfect and rare combination of fun and intellect. Which is what makes him so much like this hardcore foodie and Archie's best friend, Jughead Jones.
Veronica Lodge - Jacqueline Fernandez
A. Jacqueline looks drop dead gorgeous in bangs. B. She has the perfect flirtatious attitude to suit this role.
Cheryl Blossom - Sonam Kapoor
Cheryl is one bombshell with a kickass sense of fashion and so we present to you, Sonam Kapoor. This Bollywood actress has a sass that is impossible to hide and we love it.
Kevin Keller - Fawad Khan
Fawad Khan played the role of a closet gay man to perfection in Kapoor And Sons, so let's leave it to the expert on this one.
Reggie Mantle - Varun Dhawan
Reggie is a jock with a thing for practical jokes, doesn't that just scream Varun Dhawan? We think so too!
Moose Mason - Vidyut Jammwal
They have the same intimidating built coupled with great hair, Vidyut may just be the perfect pick for this role.
Chuck Clayton - Arunoday Singh
We still swoon over his smoldering look from Aisha and his lack of Bollywood appearance since has landed him on this list.
Mr. Weatherbee - Anupam Kher
Who can forget the last time Anupam Kher played a lovely professor in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? It's time to bring him back.
Hiram Lodge - Amitabh Bachchan
Hiram Lodge gives us the Yash Raichand vibes and we are all for it!
Bring in the shehnais, Archie is coming to Bollywood.
