'Panghat': Janhvi stuns in dual avatar, Rajkummar, Varun add goofiness in 'Roohi' first song

The first song 'Panghat' from Rajkummar Rao, Janvhi Kapoor and Varun Sharma's upcoming film 'Roohi' is finally out. The peppy number features Janhvi in a never-seen-before avatar as she shows off her killer dance moves with Rajkumar and Varun adding the perfect amount of goofiness with their hilarious antics.

Janhvi shared the dance number on her Instagram account with a caption that read, "The first song of #Roohi, #Panghat out now - Link in bio. #Roohi in cinemas 11th March, 2021."

The video of the track begins with Janhvi sitting with a veil over her head as Varun and Rajkummar walk towards her as grooms. The two actors are seen wearing identical sherwanis and have smiles on their faces.

Janhvi is first seen dressed as a bride in a red lehenga as she dances with Rajkummar and Varun in a palace but soon the party gets hijacked by her ghost avatar as the place turns spooky. Dressed in a black outfit and wearing a crystal crown with dark makeup, Janhvi looks stunning in the spooky avatar too.

On the other hand, Varun and Rajkummar can be seen dancing as the two goofy grooms. Crooned by Asees Kaur and Divya Kumar, the lyrics of the party anthem have been penned down by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

The music has been given by the popular duo, Sachin - Jigar while the rap is performed by Mellow D. The trailer of the film had released last week and received an overwhelming response from the film industry and fans.

'Roohi' which was previously called 'Rooh Afza' and then 'Roohi Afzana', is a horror-comedy directed by Hardik Mehta. A Jio Studios Presentation, 'Roohi' is being produced by Dinesh Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba.

The film marks the first-ever collaboration of Rajkummar and Janhvi. Rajkummar and Varun have earlier shared screen space in the 2015 release 'Dolly Ki Doli'.

'Roohi', which is the first major Bollywood release post lockdown, was set to hit the cinemas in the first week of June last year, but the film had to be postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The upcoming horror-comedy will also become the first film to arrive in theatres after the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting allowed cinema halls nationwide to operate at full capacity from February 1 with COVID-19 safety protocols put in place.

The film is set to hit the theatres on March 11, this year, and is based on the lines of the 2018 hit film 'Stree', which featured Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles.
