Khushi Kapoor and her fellow cast members from The Archies attended a panel session at the India Today Conclave 2023 on October 4. Kapoor spoke about her debut film and shared her thoughts on what similarities she finds between herself and her character Betty Cooper.

Responding to a question whether she was also a goody-two-shoes like her character, Kapoor said, “I'd like to think so. I think we were cast because there was so much of us that we had in our characters. There's a lot about Betty that I see in myself as well, and I think I found that out the more I played her. I think she is very sweet and empathetic but is also sensitive sometimes. And she is really caring, but sometimes she can tend to put other people's needs ahead of hers. So, I think I kind of identified with certain parts of her a lot the more I played her.”

Kapoor also revealed that she and her co-actors bonded with each other while prepping for the film. She said, “We were forced to spend so much time together, and just going through the same experience made us bond so much. I think doing acting workshops together made us open up and be vulnerable with each other. I think towards the end of the shoot we were just kind of moving in a small herd everywhere together.”

The film's cast includes Dot as Ethel Muggs, Agastya Nanda as Archie Andrews, Mihir Ahuja as Jughead Jones, Suhana Khan as Veronica Lodge, Vedang Raina as Reggie Mantle and Yuvraj Menda as Dilton Doiley.

The Archies explores the themes of friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak and rebellion and will be released on Netflix on December 7. The film is directed by Zoya Akhtar and produced by Reema Kagti and Akhtar under their banner Tiger Baby Films.
