Ever since the trailer of Janvhi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao’s trailer for their upcoming film Roohi was released on social media, there’s been palpable interest in the film. The movie shows Kapoor in a yet-unseen avatar as a demon/possessed woman who gets kidnapped by Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma. While Kapoor still looks glamorous in the movie, there are certain scenes where she looks terrifying.

Now, the actress has released the first song from the film on social media. The song is titled Panghat. In the first few minutes of the song, Kapoor is seen dressed as a gorgeous bride who dances with her co-stars, Rao and Sharma, in a palace. However, things take quite a murky turn when her character gets possessed by the ghost and the set and atmosphere turn creepy. However, even dressed in all-black with a crystal crown and dark, gothic makeup, Kapoor still manages to look stunning.

The song is sung by Asees Kaur and Divya Kumar and is composed by Sachin-Jigar. The lyrics for the song have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The opening lines of the song, “Bahut Kathin Hai Dagar Panghat Ki” have been inspired from Amir Khusro’s popular verse.

Rao and Sharma are coming together for the second time in Roohi following their collaboration in the 2015 film, Dolly Ki Doli. This is the first time that Kapoor and Rao are being seen together on screen. Roohi is directed by Hardik Mehta and produced by Dinesh Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba.

The film was supposed to hit the cinemas in June last year but was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Roohi will also be the first film to hit theatres after the ministry of information and broadcasting allowed cinema halls to operate at 100 percent capacity as long as they followed Covid-19 safety protocols.

Roohi will be released on March 11.
