The makers of Roohi is marketing the horror comedy as a sequel to 2018’s smash hit Stree. Looking from the trailer perspective, Roohi has been able to generate quite a interest thanks to its quirky dialogues, comic act and foot-tapping songs. The trailer has already generated 35 million views till now ever since its release which shows audience are eager to watch Roohi in theaters today. Roohi is also having an advantage as it is arriving on the special occasion of Maha Shivratri which witnesses a public holiday across India and will have 4-days extended weekend to mint some money.
Rajkummar Rao is known as a maestro in acting and off late has done some wonderful comedy dramas like Stree and Ludo. This time Rajkummar Rao is supported by Varun Sharma and Janhvi Kapoor while Hardik Mehta who previously made Kaamyaab and has also co-written Thappad, takes the director’s seat.
The advance booking of Roohi had already started on Sunday and the current trend is decent. The advance booking was dull till Tuesday but picked up on Wednesday with 16500 tickets already sold at the national multiplex across the country. Summing up all the things, as per our analysis, Roohi can get an opening of Rs 1.5-2 crore on its first day which is still encouraging considering the situation is still reviving but a lot will depend on the word-of-mouth reviews.
