The film, based on a folktale, is yet another horror comedy from the production house following the success of Stree (2018). Stree was a surprise hit, making over Rs100 crore in its lifetime run.
RoohiAfza will see Rajkummar Rao share the screen with Janhvi Kapoor for the first time. The film sees Kapoor playing a double role, Roohi and Afsa. The story revolves around the folktale of women keeping the groom in a village awake, to prevent him being put to sleep by a ghost. It is believed that if the groom falls asleep, the ghost will haunt the couple for the rest of their lives.
The film is based on a story by Gautam Mehra and is scheduled for release on 20 March 2020.
