Movie: 'Roohi': A horror comedy
The film is touted to be a horror-comedy, on the lines of the 2018 surprise hit Stree, which also starred Rao.
Reports suggest that the movie is a part of Vijan's horror-comedy universe and would further Stree's story.
The film will reportedly tell the story of a ghost who abducts brides during their honeymoons. It was earlier delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Quote: "Hoping 'Roohi' rekindles audience's romance with silver screen"
The producer of the movie, Vijan said, "We are all storytellers driven by our love for cinema in all its vibrant forms."
"With a partner like Jio Studios that shares our passion for the eponymous "bada parda," we hope Roohi rekindles the audience's long standing romance with the silver screen. It is a film tailor made to be viewed at your nearest theater (sic)."
