In an exclusive revelation, Zoya Akhtar shares intriguing details about the casting process. But first, take a look at the recently released trailer below…

Reema Kagta said that casting for the film was quite a rigorous process and credits casting directors Nandini Shrikent and Karan Mally for it. Zoya reveals that the first to be cast was Khushi Kapoor as Betty and the last one was Agastya Nanda for the role of Archie. Zoya says Suhana was training to be an actor, so she knew she wanted to act. Vedang Raina was a musician and a model, and he did 4 to 5 rounds of auditions before they suggested his name to Zoya. Mihir Ahuja on the other hand was noticed when Zoya watched him cry in a scene of Made In Heaven, which is also produced by her, and knew that he would fit the role of Jughead.
