After making the horror lovers go wow with their 2018 release Stree, Jio Studios & Maddock Films are all set to entertain the audiences again with their horror-comedy Roohi and now that the government has given green signal to theater owners to operate at full capacity, the Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer will have a theatrical release.
The movie will hit the big screens on March 11, 2021 and the trailer will be unveiled tomorrow. The film will release in more than 1500 screens across India. Speaking on behalf of Jio Studios, Jyoti Deshpande, President – Media & Entertainment, RIL said, “We have always invested in great stories with amazing production values, visually and by way of sound, which is best experienced on the big screen to have that ‘paisa vasool wali feeling’. We owed it to our partners across the value chain, be it Maddock or the Cinema Exhibitors, to hold on to our fabulous film for this day and give it the grand release that it deserves and promise a complete entertainment experience to our audiences who have waited over a year for this. With Roohi, the magic of Cinema is back…come celebrate with us. We promise to make you smile under your masks”.
Producer Dinesh Vijan, Maddock Films stated, “At Maddock, we are all storytellers driven by our love for cinema in all its vibrant forms. While Stree was a genre bending tale that gave audiences something never seen before, Roohi takes this vision a step further by offering the same brand of spine chilling scares and quirky comedy. With a partner like Jio Studios that shares our passion for the eponymous “bada parda”, we hope Roohi rekindles the audience’s long standing romance with the silver screen. It is a film tailor made to be viewed at your nearest theatre”
Written by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, the film has been directed by Hardik Mehta.
