Why should Veronica wear a saree?

This news baffles me? Where in India have you seen school and college students wearing sarees, except for special functions and suchlike? Is India’s Riverdale going to be based in an India of stereotype, or the India of 2007?

Having said that, I wouldn’t object if they put Jughead in a saree. The palloo should keep getting trapped in his hat thingie. There’s a story-arc right there.
