The cast of Archies
The entire gang of The Archies comprises some very charming newbies who foray into Bollywood with the Zoya Akhtar film. 'The Archies' stars Suhana Khan, Vedang Raina, Khushi Kapoor, Agastya Nanda, Dot, Yuvraj Menda, and Mihir Ahuja. From these young ones, Vedang seems to have a fan base of his own. Yes, he left many charmed in the trailer of his debut film 'The Archies' as Reggie, but do you know there is more to this?
'The Archies' does not just mark Vedang's debut as an actor but as a singer too. The actor who plays Reggie Mantle in the film has lent his voice to the song 'Everyone Is Politics'. The song is a groovy, peppy number that literally gets you hooked. 'Everything Is Politics' has got music by Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy, and is quite a mood lifter.
Even before his debut, Vedang gained the new chocolate boy image in Bollywood. He has left many smitten with his charm in 'The Archies' and is reportedly doing another big project with Alia Bhatt next. All ready to prove his mettle as an actor, Vedang has set heartbeats racing already.
The album of The Archies exudes retro vibes with a perfect blend of vintage Rock 'n' Roll elements and freshness. Accomplished singers like Arijit Singh, Shankar Mahadevan and others are associated with the project. The songs that were released till now were appreciated and now, a new track was launched today.
Suhana Khan, daughter of Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, will also be making her acting debut with the film. She will be bringing the popular comic character, Veronica Lodge from Archie, alive in the cinematic adaptation, 'The Archies'.
A couple of days back, Suhana announced that she made her singing debut as well with The Archies. She lent her voice to the song titled Jab Tum Na Theen. Sharing the news, the young starlet wrote on Instagram, "I sang my first song!! Thank you @zoieakhtar & @shankar.mahadevan for being so patient with me. Please listen with kindness (sic)."
The Archies will have as many as 16 songs. At the album launch, the cast of the film gave live performances on a few of them.
