The film will have actor Varun Sharma along with Rajkummar. The story of the film is set in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad. Reportedly, it has a female ghost roaming in the town hunting for grooms. Therefore, whenever a man is getting married in the town, the women come together to help him stay awake on his wedding night, trying to protect him against the ghost who takes grooms away on their wedding nights.
Talking about the film’s title, producer Dinesh Vijan told Mumbai Mirror, “Even though the film is named after a refreshing summer drink, there is nothing sweet about Rooh-Afza.” Along with Vijan, the Fukrey series director Mrighdeep Lamba has also come on board to produce Rooh-Afza.
