Rajakumar is all set and excited to work in the horror - comedy “Rooh-Afza” with Bollywood’s newest sweetheart Janhvi Kapoor.
Rajakumar Rao is one of few actors in the film industry who has never compromised on the quality of the movie he does. Movies like ‘Kai Po che’ and ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’ made Rao a household name and there was no looking back since then. He has played the hypocritical boyfriend in ‘Queen’, the persistent journalist in ‘Aligarh’ and a heartbroken IAS officer in ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’. Now, Rajakumar is all set and excited to work in the horror - comedy "Rooh-Afza" with Bollywood’s newest sweetheart Janhvi Kapoor.
Rajkummar spoke on the sidelines of a shoot for Bhamla Foundation's anti-air pollution song "Hawa aane de", in Mumbai on Saturday.
Asked if he is excited to work with Janhvi in the film, he said: "Yes, of course... I am also very excited to work with her. I think Janhvi is a great girl, a wonderful actress and a good friend. So, I think we will have a lot fun while shooting for the film. It is a very quirky script and I am looking forward to be with her."
Similarly, Janhvi has expressed her admiration for Rajkummar's work many times.
Rajkummar will also be seen in Ekta Kapoor's "Mental Hai Kya", with the ‘Queen’ actress Kangana Ranaut. The film will release on July 26 and it was going to clash with Hrithik Roshan-starrer "Super 30". But Hrithik urged the producers to change his movie's release date to avoid a 'media circus' due to his public feud with Kangana.
Produced by Dinesh Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, "Rooh-Afza" will be directed by debutant Hardik Mehta.
The shooting will start in Uttar Pradesh in June and the film is slated to release on March 20, 2020. This will be Rajkummar's third collaboration with Vijan after "Stree" and "Made in China".
We are all thrilled about this horror comedy and the pairing up of these two actors. Keep watching our space to get more updates on the movie and further developments related to it.
