2019 has been a year of fresh pairings! Right from Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in Raazi to Rajkumar Rao and Sonam Kapoor in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and Ranveer Singh to Alia Bhatt in Gully Boy; this year saw some amazingly fresh pairings on the big screen!


And looks like audiences are all set to witness another talented fresh pairing with Rajkumar Rao and Jhanvi Kapoor in Dinesh Vijan's upcoming horror comedy 'Rooh-Afza'. The film marks the third collaboration between Rajkummar Rao and Dinesh Vijan after Stree and Made in China


The film stars Varun Sharma along with Rao in a pivotal role. Speaking about the film; Vijan was quoted by News18," We 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."



Speaking about finalizing the films female lead; the makers said they took their own time to ensure that they choose the perfect fit. "For the female lead, we needed someone who could portray two contrasting personalities with ease, and Janhvi stood out. She really connected with the script. Her talent is still raw, but she is excited about being molded. The script is young, refreshing and totally crazy, and she is exactly that," said Vijan.


Co-producer Mrighdeep Singh Lamba; was quoted saying," We took some time to finalize the female lead. Besides being pretty, she needed to oscillate between two characters which are poles apart. You will fall in love with her in one scene and won't believe she is the same girl in the next one. It's not switch for an actor. It's the perfect casting."


The shooting for the movie will begin in Uttar Pradesh in June and the film is slated to release on March 20 next year. Produced by Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, the film will be directed by debutant Hardik Mehta.
