According to a Bollywood Hungama report, Alyy Khan, who will be seen in Zoya Akhtar upcoming musical drama The Archies revealed that the entire cast underwent tremendous training for the film. On Nadir Ali’s podcast, he said, “The film has Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson in the lead, Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter is there, and Sridevi’s daughter is there as well. Zoya made them do a workshop for one year before they even faced the camera. One year. And during that year, they worked in T-shirts and shorts, without any pressure, with no press, no publicity, and no cameras.
Only the choreographer was there, and only the dialogue coach was there. So, after one year, when you perform before the camera, if you aren’t as sharp as a razor blade, then you should be ashamed of yourself. Who allows this much time these days?” Khan said.
The Archies features Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Khushi Kapoor, Suhana Khan, Yuvraj Menda, Agastya Nanda and Vedang Raina in key roles. The film is expected to release in 2023.
