New day, new poster of Zoya Akhtar’s rendition of The Archies. The poster features Archie Andrews (Agastya Nanda) sharing a milkshake (a Pop Tate’s staple) with Veronica Lodge (Suhana Khan) and Betty Cooper (Khushi Kapoor). The caption accompanying the poster shared by Netflix India read, “Archie might not have do dil (two hearts), but Pop’s has two straws to keep his loved ones close. Meet The Archies on 7 December, only on Netflix.” Simply put, Pop Tate’s is to Archie and gang what Central Perk was to a bunch of F.R.I.E.N.D.S in New York in the 90s (IYKYK). In another words – the usual hangout spot.
