Actor Varun Sharma will be headlining as one of the leading actors in the upcoming horror-comedy film, Roohi. Directed by Hardik Mehta, Roohi is the first major Hindi film that will be releasing in theaters on March 11 post the reopening of cinemas. Varun Sharma said that going inside a theatre after a year was a special moment for him.
Varun entered a theatre for promotional activity around his upcoming film "Roohi", along with the film's team in the Capital on Thursday. He took to Instagram and posted a picture in which he is seen bowing down in the theatre as a mark of respect. He also penned a long note along with the picture.
"For us, Actors, cinema halls, and multiplexes are nothing short of a shrine. A year back, when the on-going pandemic hit us hard and theatres had to stay shut, the entire cinema industry incurred massive losses. But more importantly, it took an emotional toll on us. Today after one year I visited the Theatre and I feel so much Gratitude in my Heart❤️", he wrote.
"I grew up in a middle-class family in Jalandhar. I knew no one in showbiz. Despite all that, I wanted to be an actor for the only time I was utterly and truly happy was when I would be before the big screen living the magic and absorbing the larger-than-life charm of Hindi films. Soon, the first day first shows became a way of life and before I knew it, I was seduced into the world of movies", he added.
"When my first film Fukrey released in 2013 and I took my family to the theatres to watch it on the big screen, it was rather overwhelming. When my mother saw me on the screen, she broke down. It was an emotional moment for the entire family. Back in Jalandhar, people were proud of me because they saw me on the silver screen".
Varun concluded the post talked about his film "Roohi" releasing in theatres, "As my upcoming film #Roohi is all set to hit the theatres on March 11, I am elated beyond words. I am happy to share this special film with my audience who has been waiting to watch me for the past two years. Roohi is my first release after Chhichhore that released in 2019. Let us come together and relive the magic. But don't forget to stay safe. Wear your masks and enjoy the rollercoaster ride that Roohi is💕".
Roohi also starred Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao as the leading actors along with Pankaj Tripathi, and Seema Pahwa in supporting roles. Produced by Dinesh Vijan under his production banner Maddock Films, the film tells the story of a girl, controlled by a witch, who abducts brides during their honeymoon.
