Apart from Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda, The Archies will also star Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Yuvraj Menda and Vedang Raina. The look of the cast is very retro as it is set in the 1960s, and the teaser has a very catchy music track by Ankur Tewari. It gives a glimpse into the world of the islanders as they celebrate their friendship on a picnic and their chemistry will surely be a highlight of the film as visible in the teaser itself. It does increases the curiosity to dive deep into that world.
