Janhvi Kapoor is one amongst those B-town debutants who have their kitty full with back-to-back films. After making a silver screen debut with Karan Johar produced Dhadak in 2018, she was announced as one of the important characters in his directorial Takht. While the work on the movie is yet to begin, she began shooting for Gunjan Saxena biopic. Alongside that, her name was also announced for Roohi Afza.
In Roohi Afza, she will be the leading lady of Rajkummar Rao. This Dinesh Vijan produced film Roohi Afza went on floors recently. Filmmakers posted a photo of the clapperboard while announcing,
“Karne aa rahein hai aapke attention ko qabza, aaj se shuru hoti hai #Roohi Afza! @Rajkummar_Rao @fukravarun #DineshVijan @serialclicker811 @mriglamba @gautam.m1 @maddockfilms @officialjiocinema”.
Janhvi plays quite an interesting role in the film. She acts as a ghost, who sings and puts grooms to sleep so she can possess the bride. She was snapped (without her knowledge) on the sets of the film in a traditional wear. Janhvi was wearing a peach kurta paired with green patiala and dupatta. Her hair was tied in a plait and she donned what looked like a taweez on her neck. She was also carrying a brown sling bag. Photographer Viral Bhayani shared the leaked images.
Below have a look at them for yourself:
When it comes to the film, it will hit box-office on March 20, 2020. Producer: Dinesh Vijan had earlier said,
“For Roohi Afza we needed actors who could jump into their roles with unabashed conviction. Rajkummar and Varun (Sharma) are phenomenal actors, comedy is a space they excel in and own. 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!”
