Mihir Ahuja portrays Jughead Jones and was captioned: “The only food Jughead Jones share with you is food for thought Hide your burgers and milkshakes.”

“The only thing Reggie loves more than himself is himself winning. Beware, he’ll charm his way through your heart ” is portrayed by Vedang Raina.
The movie is set in the 1960s and is a teen comedy drama film which will mark the debut of Suhana Khan, the daughter of Shah Rukh Khan; Khushi Kapoor, the daughter of Boney Kapoor and the late Sridevi; and Agastya, the grandson of Amitabh Bachchan, among other talents.
Centered around the themes of growing up, romance and camaraderie, the film will tell the story of these seven teenagers, and will release on Netflix in November.
Netizen reaction has been lukewarm and largely uninterested, while some expressed excitement others have mocked the movie.
When the trailer was released in 2022, even then the film was panned by everyone as audiences wondered just why and for whom the film really was made for as it has no appeal whatsoever and despite being set in the 1960’s it makes absolutely no sense as this was definitely not the way Indians lived. A trend was released online which amusingly stated that this movie may just have united all of India for once.
