All the best to the entire team involved with this sweet and meaningful fun film!” Reacting to it, Suhana commented, “love you (sic).”
Janhvi Kapoor extended support to her younger sister Khushi, who is also making her debut. She wrote, “The world of Archies! It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen before. It’s sunshine, it’s fun, and it’s all heart and it’s my sister`s big puppy dog eyes making me want to pin her to the ground and give her 1000 cuddles and 5000 kissies.”
Abhishek Bachchan wished his nephew Agastya for his debut. The actor`s caption on Instagram read, “This is just so cool! Can’t wait to see it. Agastya, I’m so, so proud of you. From jumping on my bed as a kid playing the air guitar to jumping out of the screen with a real one….. the journey has just begun. Play hard! Zo, you’ve knocked it out of the park again! And to the rest of the kids and the crew, all the very best. Very exciting. Welcome to the movies!”
