Break from Pop Tates
A high-end Mumbai restaurant took to Instagram on Tuesday and shared pictures of The Archies cast acting as servers for a charity Independence Day lunch. The restaurant’s caption read, “Look who took a break from Pop Tates to show up at The Bombay Canteen? The Archies! (slurp emoji) Always showing up for a good cause, The Archies volunteered at our Independence Day Daawat to lend a hand and pass on the plate!”
“It was an absolute delight to have The Archies join our mission that brings people together over good food, for a good cause! (bow emoji) We cannot wait to see what good they are up to next! Thank you Archie, Veronica, Betty, Reggie, Jughead, Ethel & Dilton! They have a film releasing later this year called The Archies! And we can’t wait to Netflix and chill with them!”
Khushi serves milk cakes
Khushi was seen serving milk cakes to the guests. Wearing a sequined dress of the same colour as the milk cakes, she also posted her photo while serving and captioned it, “Matching milk cake (tongue out emoji).” Others were also seen serving, and posing for selfies and pictures with the guests and each others.
About The Archies
The Archies is the Indian adaptation of the popular Archie Comics. It’s set in the Anglo-Indian community at a fictional hill station in India called Riverdale back in 1964. On setting the storyline in that period, Zoya said in an interview to Film Companion, “When I was asked to adapt this, I didn’t want to do a modern take. Firstly, Riverdale has done it. Secondly, it’s not my experience of Archies. My experience of Archies is a simpler time, a more innocent time, a gentler time, where less is more. I wanted to go back to that. I wanted to keep the essence of the comic and find a way for it to resonate with young adults today.”
