Nandini Shrikent on casting Suhana Khan, Khushi, Agastya in The Archies: Didn’t go over with roles on platter

Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming director The Archies has been making headlines since it was announced. The film is the official Bollywood adaptation of the popular comic The Archies and stars Suhana Khan, Agastya Nanda and Khushi Kapoor. The creators even released the teaser for The Archies and it wowed fans. However, the casting was even criticized as the team was accused of favoring star kids. However, Nandini Shrikent, casting director of The Archies, has clarified that every actor in the film auditioned for the project before being brought on board.

Speaking to The Quint, Nandini said: “Any industry you look at, the next generation is taking over. If someone fits the role, they deserve the chance because they fit the role. It’s not like we just cast someone because they’re a star kid. Everyone is very specific, super-perfect for the role they’re cast in.” She also clarified that a proper casting process was followed for the roles. In fact, Nandini also emphasized that several aspiring actors auditioned for the role. “We didn’t just bring these rolls on a tray to the three star kids and say, ‘Here they are!’ A lot of people were testing for different roles and that’s what happened,” added the casting director.

For the uninitiated, Agastya will play the role of Archie in the film, while Suhana and Khushi will play the roles of Veronica and Betty, respectively. The team shot in Ooty for the initial schedule and The Archies will be released on Netflix.
