Janhvi Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma's horror-comedy film Roohi which released in theatres on March 11 has earned a decent sum at the ticket window on its first day. The Hardik Mehta movie which opened to mixed reviews from critics and audience alike have churned Rs 3.06 crore.

Also, looking at the BO collection, we feel that the audience wants to invest in cinema. Even though coronavirus in on the rise, peeps do not want to go low when it comes to entertainment. March 12 and 13 marks the weekend and that's the chance when Roohi might be able to earn more than the opening day collection.
Talkin about the storyline of the movie, it's kind of inspired by the 2018 hit film Stree, which starred Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar as leads. However, the plot has no connection from the previous one and is entirely fresh and unique in its own way. Stay tuned!
