Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor‘s upcoming film has been in the making and has been a continuous source of excitement and anticipation for us Bollywood lovers. The film was first called Roohi Afza then changed to Roohi Afzana and now it’s been changed a third time to Roohi by the makers. The movie that was initially supposed to release on 5th June 2020 has now got a new release date of 11th March 2021.
Jio Studios & Maddock Films are all set to bring back the magic of cinema to eagerly awaiting cine-goers with their much-anticipated film, horror comedy – Roohi, releasing worldwide in theatres, to celebrate cinemas finally getting the green signal to operate at 100% capacity.
After the massive success of Stree, the team reunites to further build the cinematic universe in the family-friendly horror-comedy franchise with the much-anticipated Roohi. The incredibly talented Rajkummar Rao is back with Janhvi Kapoor in a spectacular role and audience favourite Varun Choocha Sharma. The trailer of Roohi will be unveiled on Tuesday, 16th February.
Backing a new director as they have in the past, Roohi is directed by Hardik Mehta and written by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, and the makers of Roohi hope to pave the way for films slated for a theatrical release with the first major 1,500 screen plus pan-India release this year.
Producer Dinesh Vijan commented:
At Maddock, we are all storytellers driven by our love for cinema in all its vibrant forms. While Stree was a genre bending tale that gave audiences something never seen before, Roohi takes this vision a step further by offering the same brand of spine chilling scares and quirky comedy. With a partner like Jio Studios that shares our passion for the eponymous “bada parda”, we hope Roohi rekindles the audience’s long standing romance with the silver screen. It is a film tailor made to be viewed at your nearest theatre
All we can say is… if Roohi is anything like Stree, it’s going to be one hell of an entertainer for sure. Don’t you think?
