The film revolves around a singing ghost who puts grooms to sleep so it can possess their brides. Every time there is a wedding in town, local women come together to keep the groom awake through the first night in a bid to avoid the wrath of the ghost. Janhvi Kapoor will be seen playing two "poles apart" characters, Roohi and Afsana
In an earlier interview, Dinesh Vijan had spelled out why Janhvi was a perfect fit for his film. "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," Vijan said
Rajkummar Rao was also impressed by the professionalism and hardwork of the Dhadak girl. Speaking to PTI, the Newton actor had said, "Janhvi is phenomenal. She is such a sincere and hardworking actor. I think what we have seen her in 'Dhadak' is just a hint of her talent, she is way more talented than that". Also starring Varun Sharma of Fukrey fame, Roohi Afza is scheduled to be released in March 2020.
