Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor, Varun Sharma's next horror-comedy Roohi Afza gets another title change to Roohi Afzana
Bollywood actors Janhvi Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma’s upcoming film Roohi Afza has undergone another title change yet again. Now, the horror-comedy has been titled as Roohi Afzana. The film was formerly titled Roohi Afza.
Meanwhile, the update was revealed as part of Maddock Films’ announcement of its upcoming slate which also includes Imtiaz Ali’s untitled next starring Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan, Angerzi Medium starring Irrfan Khan and Kareena Kapoor, Mimi starring Kriti Sanon as well as Shiddat starring Radhika Madan and Sunny Kaushal.
Moreover, the post also includes the first official look at Roohi Afzana which shows the three actors wearing worried expressions on their faces.
Reportedly, in an interview to Hindustan Times, Janhvi Kapoor said that her character in Roohi Afzana is “one of the most exciting, challenging, complicated, physically demanding and emotionally taxing roles” that she has done.
Furthermore, in a statement, producer Dinesh Vijan said, “For the female lead, we needed someone who could portray two contrasting personalities with ease and Janhvi stood out, she really connected with the script. Her talent is still raw, but she is excited about being moulded. The script is young, refreshing and totally crazy, and she is exactly that.”
It will be Rajkummar Rao‘s third collaboration with Dinesh Vijan after Stree and Made in China. Speaking further about the choice of Rajkummr and Varun for the film, Dinesh had said that for Roohi-Afza they needed actors who could really jump into their roles with unabashed conviction nicely.
The film Roohi Afzana is now slated for an April 2020 release.
