Janhvi Kapoor is on a roll since the success of her debut movie Dhadak. The actress, who is currently shooting for Gunjan Saxena’s biopic, will be next seen in the Stree director Dinesh Vijan’s upcoming Rooh Afza opposite Rajkummar Rao.
Now as per the latest news as confirmed by Vijan, Janvhi will have a double role in this movie which also stars Fukrey fame Varun Sharma in a supporting role. Janhvi’s characters will be named Roohi and Afza and they will both be very opposite to each other.
Talking about it, the actress was quoted saying, “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. 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!”
On casting Janvhi producer, Mrighdeep was quoted saying, “We took some time to finalize 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”
On the other hand, Rajkummar will be next seen in Mental Hai Kya with his Queen co-star Kangana Ranaut next. The movie is set to release in March 2020.
