Zoya Akhtar's Hindi-Urdu adaptation of the comic book franchise, The Archies, has an interesting new development.

It already features Shah Rukh Khan's daughter, Suhana; Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan's grandson, Agastya; and Sridevi and Boney's daughter, Khushi in the lead.

Set in the 1960s, this musical drama is being directed by Akhtar who has added four more actors to the cast.

 

Meet Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Yuvraj Menda and Vedang Raina.

While Mihir has been part of over 12 projects, including Super 30, State Of Seige: Temple Attack and Feels Like Ishq, it's their first big screen outing for the others.

The announcement featuring the cast, and a catchy music track by Ankur Tiwari and the Islanders, offers a glimpse into the world that Akhtar promises to bring to life. And it does look like she's been able to capture the youthful energy, hope and excitement of the Sixties era.
