Roohi Afzana will be Janhvi's second movie in the horror space after the anthology film, Ghost Stories. In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, she said that her character in the film is one of the most exciting, challenging, complicated, physically demanding and emotionally taxing roles that she has had the privilege of doing.
For Rajkummar, this will be his third collaboration with Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, after Stree and Made In China. Rajkummar and Varun were chosen by the filmmakers for Roohi Afzana because they 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," Dinesh had said in an earlier interview.
Roohi Afzana, which was scheduled to hit theatres in March 2020, will now be releasing in April 2020.
