The makers of The Archieshave unveiled the first track, Sunoh. The song is a “friendship anthem" and it "is perfect for celebrating your bond with your best buds.” It also introduces us to the key characters of Zoya Akhtar's movie. It opens to Agastya Nanda, who essays the role of Archie Andrews, playing a guitar. We also get a glimpse of his friends. Then, he says, “This is my story, Sunoh!” Cut to — Khushi Kapoor aka Betty Cooper. She is seen riding a bicycle around Riverdale with a basket full of flowers. Next up, we get to see Suhana Khan's Veronica. Let's not disturb her as she is busy roller skating. Sunoh has been composed by Ankur Tewari and The Islanders. The lyrics were written by Zoya's father, the legendary Javed Akhtar, and Dot, who is also part of the film.
Here is the music video of Sunoh:

Recently, Khushi Kapoor got candid about her character at an event. Khushi, who is also actress Janhvi Kapoor's sister, revealed she connects with her character Betty Cooper and that the two have a lot in common. Khushi said, "I think we were cast because [there] was so much of us that we have in our characters and there's a lot about Betty that I see in myself as well and I think I found that out the more I played her. I think she's very sweet and empathetic but I think she's also sensitive sometimes and she is really caring but I think sometimes she can tend to put other people's needs ahead of her...so I think I identified with certain parts of her a lot like the more I played."
