Speaking about playing a double role in the film, Janhvi had earlier shared, "Not many actors get a chance to play a character loaded with duality so early on in their career." Roohi was earlier titled as Rooh Afzana. With this Rajkummar Rao-Janhvi Kapoor starrer, the makers are hoping to entice the audience back into the cinema halls after the COVID-19 lockdown.
Helmed by debutant director Hardik Mehta and produced by Dinesh Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, Roohi is scheduled to release in cinema halls on March 11, 2021.
