Hardik Mehta has directed the film from a script penned by Fukrey helmer Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, who also serves as a co-producer on the movie.
Producer Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films said Roohi takes the genre of horror-comedy a notch above the banner's 2018 hit Stree, which also featured Rao.
"While Stree was a genre-bending tale that gave audiences something never seen before, Roohi takes this vision a step further by offering the same brand of spine chilling scares and quirky comedy," Vijan said a statement earlier.
