Rajkummar Rao is currently shooting for his horror-comedy film, RoohiAfza, in a village near Agra. The actor — who appeared in the hit film Stree, which belonged to the same genre — is working with Jhanvi Kapoor, for the first time, on his new project. In a recent interview, the actor spoke warmly about his co-star, who made her debut last year with Dhadak. Rajkummar said that audiences will get a chance to witness more of Jhanvi’s talent and that her film Dhadak only showed a glimpse of it. He said that Jhanvi is one of the most hardworking and sincere co-stars he has ever worked with, and he thinks she is ‘phenomenal’.
The shooting of RoohiAfza commenced recently and the producer of the film, Dinesh Vijan had also praised Jhanvi when the film was announced in February 2019. In the film — which is being directed by debutant Hardik Mehta and has been written by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and Gautam Mehra — Jhanvi will be seen in a double role, playing the characters of Roohi and Afsana. The cast also includes Varun Sharma, Ronit Roy, Pankaj Tripathi, Aamna Sharif and Arjun Mathur, with a cameo appearance by Shraddha Kapoor, who was also part of Stree.
The film will hit the theatres on 20th March, 2020, and the story revolves around fairies, spirits and ghosts that attack grooms on their wedding nights. When asked about her film, Jhanvi shared, ”The shooting of the film has been going on really well. Whether you call me superstitious or old-fashioned, I feel if you talk more about your film, it will catch the evil's eye. So, I will not speak much about the film. I feel fortunate to be part of this film and to be working with people who are involved in it.”
