Archie Is Going To Bollywood, To Feature All Indian Cast!

Archie Comics is getting a Bollywood makeover!

It was just announced that the comics have teamed up with Graphic India for a Bollywood style live action film based off the comic characters, and it will star an all Indian cast, Variety reports.

“We are supremely excited to partner with the great team at Graphic India to bring Archie and his friends to Bollywood,” Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater told the site. “Archie’s lasting and growing presence in India made this move the logical next step as our stellar library of characters continues to expand into other media. It’s a major moment for Archie and its fans around the world.”

“Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead have been a source of inspiration for numerous Bollywood films over the years, and now it’s time to take them fully into Bollywood in an exciting new twist of a story that we have planned,” Sharad Devarajan, co-founder and CEO of Graphic India, said. “These characters have held a special place in the hearts of Indians for decades and we have no doubt that the new Indian cast of Archie and the gang will be an exciting moment for the country.”

The Archie Comics characters can currently be seen on The CW’s Riverdale, as well as the upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix.
