After a very long wait, the makers of Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor and Varun Sharma starrer Roohi finally made the announcement of its release yesterday. The film has seen many alterations and is now all set to release in theatres soon. The makers shared a spooky promo video to announce the new title of the film and revealed that the trailer of the film will also be unveiled today. Hours before releasing the sneak peek, Maddock Films have shared a glimpse of what's to come next. Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor’s Roohi Afzana Is Now ‘Roohi’, Makers Invite You To a ‘Horror Wedding’ on March 11.
Sharing two posters of the horror-comedy, the makers revealed that the trailer of the film will be out today at 12 PM. In one of the posters, we can see Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma dressed as grooms. Both the actors look frightened in the poster and makes us wonder what secret they have discovered about Janhvi. Janhvi's face also features in the back. Her face is dirty and her head is covered with a red cloth while she gives an angry look. In the other photo, Janhvi has gone in full 1920 mode with many faces of Varun and Rajkummar being scared for their lives. One can also see the tagline, "Mard Ko Jyada Dard Hoga" on the poster as well. Check out the posters here:
