Soon to become a notable Bollywood actress Suhana Khan has credited her parents Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan as her sources of guidance for her decisions in life. Suhana will be making her big debut in Bollywood with Zoya Akhtar’s film The Archies. Suhana spoke with a media outlet India Today and also revealed how she felt really nervous when she started shooting for her first movie.
Talking about actor Shah Rukh Khan and producer-interior designer Gauri Khan who are her parents, Suhana said that they aren’t her critics but instead act as the biggest sources of mentors who come to help her out. In fact, she said her whole family including her two brothers help each other out in times of giving suggestions for improvements. She said she would ask her mom for suggestions if her performance was okay or if her hair was fine.
She also narrated how working in a Netflix film is different from working on a real film as an actor. The sets vary and so do the number of people and lights and the hair and makeup all add up to the chaos. She felt that during her initial days of shooting, she would feel really unimportant and nervous too. She understood how her role everyone was appreciating was actually the director Zoya’s vision.
The Netflix film The Archies has several newcomers from the film families who are going to make a mark in Bollywood. In the film, Suhana plays the role of Veronica. The Indian live-action musical movie is based on the famous American comics of the same name. The Archies also features debutant actors Khushi Kapoor who is late Sridevi’s daughter and Agastya Nanda who is Amitabh Bachchan’s grandson.
Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Yuvraj Menda, and Vedang Raina also would be starring in The Archies. The film is set in the 1960s and shows us the importance of friendship, freedom, love, heartbreak, and rebellion through the lives of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Reggie, Ethel, and Dilton. The film will take the audience to the imaginary hilly town of Riverdale. You can start watching The Archies on Netflix from December 7, 2023.
Recently, director Zoya Akhtar shared posts on social media detailing the characters of the vital cast. Sharing Khushi Kapoor’s character poster, Zoya wrote, ”Love has four letters and so does cake. Betty Cooper is all for both.”
For Suhana Khan, Zoya wrote, ”Few things impress Veronica like herself.”
Filmmaker Karan Johar who is a dear friend of actor Shah Rukh Khan immediately commented on Veronica aka Suhana’s character poster, he wrote, ”Suhana you beauty,” along with many heart emojis. Amitabh’s daughter Shweta Bachchan wrote, ”Love Love Love Veronica.”
