“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,” director Dinesh Vijan shared.
Talking about actors Rajkummar and Varun, Dinesh revealed, “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.”
While writer and producer Mrighdeep Singh 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.”
The film will go on floors in June in Uttar Pradesh and will hit cinema screens on March 20, 2020.
