The theatres are about to reopen after the Covid-19 pandemic. The last movie to hit the screens before the theatres had a nationwide shut down was the late actor Irrfan Khan starrer Angrezi Medium which was on March 12. Now the next movie, according to reports that will hit the theatres in the first week of March is Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer Roohi Afzana which is again a Dinesh Vijan production.
Reports suggest that Roohi Afzana is a horror-comedy on the lines of Stree and it will attract the audience to the cinemas. It is said that Dinesh Vijan has locked the terms and condition of the theatrical deal with the exhibition sector and soon there will be an announcement.
According to a report by Pinkvilla, a source revealed, “It’s a horror comedy on the lines of Stree and the makers are extremely confident that the film will bring back the audience to the cinema halls. The Studio Partner, Jio, along with Dinesh have closed the terms and condition of theatrical deal with the exhibition sector and an announcement is underway very soon.”
The source further revealed that Roohi Afzana will be the first Hindi film with an A-list cast to hit the big screen even though movies like Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari, Madam Chief Minister among others have released.
