Roohi starring Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor, and Varun Sharma is one of the first mainstream films to release in theatres after a year-long hiatus amid pandemic. Roohi has received a mixed response from the audience. The film is the second one after Stree in the horror-comedy universe of Maddock films. According to the box office report for Day 1, the film has seen an “encouraging response”. As per early reports, the film’s day 1 collection will be close to 2.50 crore nett. As per BOI, this is the best figure so far for films that were released in Hindi belts post-COVID 19.

The film has been getting a good response in the North of India including Delhi/NCR and some stations of UP. But it is a breather for multiplexes and theatres owners as the audience is venturing out to watch movies in the theatres even with 50% occupancy allowed. According to the production figure, the film has collected around 3.06 crore nett.

This is Janhvi Kapoor’s second film release in theatres. After Dhadak, her other movie Gunjan Saxena and short film Ghost released on OTT platforms. Roohi despite mixed reviews has been able to bring a section of the audience to the theatres. Rajkummar Rao, Varun Sharma’s camaraderie in the movie was much loved by the audience.


Meanwhile, as Roohi was released in theatres, people noted that late Disha Salian’s name has made it to the end credits of the film. Disha managed Varun Sharma along with other celebrities. Varun had even written a heartfelt note for her after her demise in 2019.

Produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner Maddock Films, Roohi will be followed by Bhediya starring Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon among others.
