In recent times, India seems to be on every International celebrities bucket list – something they must “do” at least once before they die. Katy Perry got married here, President Obama rocked St. Xavier’s College and Elizabeth Hurley is such a frequent visitor, I wouldn’t be surprised to find her traveling alongside me in a Churchgate local. Even Lady Gaga has her sights set on performing here in the near future.

And as if not to be left behind, we’ve just got news that Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and the rest of the gang will be coming to or very own Mumbai – along with their Indian friend Raj Patel – to have a go in Bollywood in a story called “Love Me Baby, Mumbai”.

Check out the cover of WORLD OF ARCHIE Double Digest No: 9 (above) with the gang wearing sherwanis, cholis and saree skirts. And it looks like Juggie has given up his regular diet of hamburgers and hotdogs for a plateful of something that looks suspiciously like samosas. Isn’t it adorable?

The story goes that Raj Patel (the Indian character in the comics) dreams of being a film director! His current ITube movie ‘Love Hate Triangle’ has over 10,000 views and has caught the eye of Kunal Desai, one of the biggest Bollywood producers in India! Can Raj turn Love Hate Triangle into an epic film?

Well, we’ll just have to wait till July/August when the comic releases and find out just how much Mumbai Masala is in this Bollwood Blockbuster.
