Rooh-Afza: Janhvi Kapoor to play double role opposite Rajkummar Rao


Boney Kapoor and late actress Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor has bagged a new movie. The actress has bagged double role in her next film titled, ‘Rooh-Afza’. She will be seen opposite Rajkummar Rao. The film will be bankrolled by Dinesh Vijan.

After ‘Stree’ and ‘Made in China’, this will be Rajkummar Rao’s third collaboration with Dinesh Vijan.

"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 moulded. The script is young, refreshing and totally crazy, and she is exactly that," Vijan said about Janhvi, who debuted with ‘Dhadak’ last year.

Debutant Hardik Mehta will direct ‘Rooh-Afza’. Co-producer Lamba said, "We took some time to finalise 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 an easy switch for an actor. It's the perfect casting."

Rajkummar Rao tweeted:-All set to bring to you this perfect mixture of horror and comedy, #RoohAfza!
