Ever since the trailer for Roohi was dropped on February 16, fans have been lauding Sharma's comic timing. In the trailer, he is seen alongside Rajkummar Rao as they play best friends who come across a ghost (played by Janhvi Kapoor) who abducts brides on their honeymoon day. Varun made quite an appearance in the trailer as he was seen with spooky makeup with blood running down his face while donning red hair.
According to Koimoi, Varun Sharma elaborated on the reason to dye his hair red for the role. He stated it was the "collective call" of the film-makers to add a certain uniqueness and vitality to his character. He explained that writer/producer of the film Dinesh Vijan and director Hardik Mehra wanted to try something quirky and fun. He said that people are loving his new red-haired look and praised the maker's efforts for making the choice. Here's a look at Roohi's trailer featuring Rajkummar Rao, Varun Sharma and Janhvi Kapoor.
