Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics CEO, may want to cast Deepika Padukone as Veronica and Katrina Kaif as Betty but Bollywood fans want Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan and Kaif as the trio.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Salman Khan
Fans voted for Khan and his ex-girlfriends Bachchan and Kaif for the lead characters. While 38 percent people voted for the Bachchan-Salman-Kaif team, 25 percent voted for Padukone-Ranbir Kapoor-Kaif.
"Main Tera Hero" lead pair Varun Dhawan and Ileana D'Cruz, along with "2 States" actress Alia Bhatt, came third with 19 percent votes, while evergreen romantic jodi Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, along with Priyanka Chopra, came at fourth position with 11 percent votes.
"I liked the idea of starting the tour in India because we have a large fanbase there, and I thought the beautiful backdrop of India would make a nice starting point," writer and artist Dan Parent had told The Times of India in an interview last year.
When the makers were asked who they would prefer for the role of Archie - Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh or Salman, they replied "It's impossible to decide between these three fantastic leading men."
But when asked about Veronica and Betty, they preferred Padukone to play Veronica, and Kaif or Kareena Kapoor Khan for the role of Betty.
