Janhvi Kapoor to play double role in Rajkummar Rao’s horror-comedy ‘Rooh-Afza’
Actress Janhvi Kapoor after the stupendous success of ‘Dhadak’ has now joined the cast of producer Dinesh Vijan’s film, ‘Rooh-Afza’, which also stars Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma. The daughter of late actress Sridevi will play two characters — Roohi and Afsana in the upcoming film.
Producer Dinesh Vijan says, “For Rooh-afza we needed actors who could jump into their roles with unabashed conviction. Rajkummar and Varun are phenomenal actors, comedy is a space they excel in and own. 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!”
For a newcomer like Janhvi this sounds challenging and exciting, producer Mrighdeep adds that they took some time to finalise the female lead. Besides being pretty she needed to oscillate between two characters which are poles apart. He also added that fans will fall in love with Janhvi’s characters in the movie.
This would be a great opportunity for Janhvi to showcase her talent, as both characters ( Roohi and Afsana)have contrasting personalities! Takes us back to Chalbaaz days! Sriji had impeccable comic timing and it will be thrilling to see Janhvi light up the screen too like her mother.
Shoot starts in Uttar Pradesh this June and the film is slated to release on 20th March 2020. Produced by Dinesh Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba the film is being directed by debutant Hardik Mehta. ‘Rooh – Afza’ is also Janhvi’s first film outside Dharma
