During an interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Dinesh Vijan, the producer of Roohi, had spilled a lot beans about the movie. "Roohi Afza, my first film with Janhvi (Kapoor) and my third with Raj, comes in April 2020. In March 2021, we plan to release another horror-comedy, Munjha, which goes on the floors next year in August. All three— Stree, Roohi Afza and Munjha—will have a part 2 which will arrive over the next five years, three years after the original opened, each answering the questions the first part ended with. Then, all three will come together in my horror universe in a series of two films which deal with the bigger picture and a larger conflict," said the producer.
