The Archies teaser stoked familiar debates on nepotism and Bollywood 'star kids', but that was not the only reason for which the teaser was criticised.

‘The Archies’ starring Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor, Agastya Nanda, Mihir Ahuja, Dot, Yuvraj Menda, and Vedang Raina and directed by Zoya Akhtar recently dropped its teaser and ended up causing chaos on the Internet. Familiar debates on nepotism and Bollywood “star kids" erupted once again, but that was not the only reason for which the teaser was criticised. Many Twitter users claimed that it looked like a clothing ad, others said that it did not match the ethos of Indian teenagers in the sixties and yet others claimed that it was “white-washed" to give all the actors similar skin tone.
