“Dil thaam ke bethein because #TheArchies will be kicking into action soon! #TheArchiesOnNetflix,” the platform tweeted.
Suhana, daughter of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan and fashion designer-producer Gauri Khan, shared the poster on her social media and wrote, “Meet the @archiesnetflix gang! Coming soon, only on @netflix_in!”
The poster has built anticipation for a release date announcement or trailer soon.
