In case you’re wondering you wouldn’t be seeing Janhvi Kapoor on the screen any time soon, things are about to be changed. The young actress has been signed opposite to Rajkumar Rao for a horror-comedy film.
Titled 'Roof-Afza', will see Janhvi essaying titular double roles of Roohi and Afsa. Distinctly different from one another, the film will be a great opportunity for Janhvi to prove her acting chops.
The film will also see Varun Sharma winning hearts yet again with his impeccable comic timing. Producer Dinesh Vijan was positively beaming about his film’s cast and said, "For Rooh-Afza, 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,"
Vijan continued by talking about Janvhi’s involvement in the film. He said. "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,'' Vijan said about the actress, who made her debut in Dhadak last year.”
''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," the producer added.
The film will also see Mrighdeep Singh Lamba as producer along with Vijan and will be directed by debutant Hardik Mehta.
Lamba was all praise for Janvhi as well. He positively beamed when asked about her role in the film. In a statement, he 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,''
The shooting will start in Uttar Pradesh this June. However the film will be released only in 2020, so there’s a long wait!
