Amidst recent rumours circulating about their alleged impending separation, Bollywood couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan put up a united front as they graced the premiere of Agastya Nanda's debut film The Archies.
The couple arrived hand-in-hand, stealing the limelight and posing together for the paparazzi at the star-studded event held in Mumbai. They were accompanied by their family members, including their daughter Aaradhya, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Navya Naveli Nanda.
The Bachchan family, a picture of unity, dressed in coordinated black outfits for the special occasion, with the exception of Jaya Bachchan, who opted for a stunning white ensemble, and Navya Naveli Nanda, Agastya's sister, who looked elegant in a red gown. The entire Bachchan-Nanda clan, from Aishwarya Rai to Abhishek Bachchan, posed together, sending a strong message of togetherness.
The Archies, helmed by Zoya Akhtar, marks the cinematic debut of Agastya Nanda, the son of Shweta Bachchan and Nikhil Nanda as well as the great-grandson of the legendary Raj Kapoor. The film features a stellar cast, including Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan and the youngest daughter of the late Sridevi, Khushi Kapoor.
The Archies, a Hindi adaptation of the popular American comic book series, is set in 1960s India, where Archie and his gang navigate through the complexities of romance and friendship to save their town — Riverdale— from land sharks.
Agastya Nanda takes on the iconic role of Archie Andrews, while Khushi Kapoor and Suhana Khan play the characters of Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, respectively. The film also stars Vedang Raina, Mihir Ahuja, Dot, and Yuvraj Menda in pivotal roles. The much-anticipated film is scheduled to drop on Netflix on December 7.
