The Archies: Suhana Khan reveals how her personal style aligns with Veronica, says ‘Zoya saw me wearing…’November 28, 2023
Suhana Khan’s look as Veronica in Zoya Akhtar’s The Archies takes fans back to retro fashion. Set in ’60s India in a fictional town called Riverdale, Suhana rolls around in skates in the recently released first song Sunoh from the upcoming film. In a recent media interaction, Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter said that her personal style overlapped with Veronica’s style in the film. She also revealed that she trained for months in order to showcase her skating skills perfectly in the film.
Speaking at OTT India fest by Bollywood Hungama, Suhana said she wore her personal outfit in a few scenes in the film. “I definitely think there is an overlap. There are definitely bits and pieces of Veronica style that align with my personal style. There was actually a scene in the film when I wore my personal outfit and it worked really well for Veronica and it’s something I was actually wearing and Zoya saw me wearing it at a bonfire night and said, ‘You should wear this in the film.’ So that was really cool.”
Further, she also mentioned a few differences as well. “But at the same time, that is also a moment in the film where Veronica is deeply sad and she’s sad, but she’s still wearing a fur coat. When I’m sad and I’m having a breakdown, I prefer to be in my pajamas, so there’s definitely a difference as well, “ she added. About her skating training, she said, “We started training 5 or 6 months before we actually started filming. I know you said it looks very breezy in the song, but I’m lucky you didn’t see us fall and bump into each other, that was far from effortless.”
Meanwhile, Suhana is making her Bollywood debut with Zoya’s The Archies, which is based on the American comic book series of the same name. The upcoming coming-of-age musical drama follows the lives of the town’s favorite set of teenagers — Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie, Ethel and Dilton- played by Agastya Nanda, Khushi Kapoor, Suhana, Mihir Ahuja, Vedang Raina, Dot and Yuvraj Menda respectively. Backed by Tiger Baby Productions, the film is set to stream on Netflix on December 7, 2023.
