In a recent interview with The Hindu, Akhtar described The Archies as a wholesome family watch. “I’m doing something on a streaming platform and there’s a lot of — including what we’ve done in the past — adult narratives, so here was my chance to do something for the tweens and to really talk to them. The film is set in a simpler time in India and we wanted to keep that innocence and that wholesomeness. It is that one film where the whole family can sit together and happily watch.”
