Roohi is being termed as Stree's crazy sister. Stree which featured Rajkummar and Shraddha Kapoor collected around Rs 7 crore at the box office on an opening day alongwith positive reviews. However, considering the pandemic situation and casting, it is expected that the film will range anything in between Rs 1.75 to 2.50 crores.

A report in Box Office India stated, "The advance of the film was poor as it was around 35 lakh nett for the extended weekend and around 20 lakhs nett for the first day across India. There are lockdowns and restrictions in many places especially Maharashtra and Punjab but the main audience for this film is going to be Delhi NCR and this area is fine and films are being allowed to run to 100% occupancy. Another plus is that 90-95% of the cinemas are open in Delhi / NCR though its a different story in UP."

Meanwhile, the lead actor Rajkummar Rao was seen selling the tickets of his film on his own in New Delhi.

There were many who were considering Roohi and Stree's similarity. Speaking about the same, Director Mehta told PTI, "Roohi has its own identity. The film has nothing to do with Stree except it is a horror comedy genre and it is coming from the same producers. Content wise it is not similar."

'Roohi' which was previously called 'Rooh Afza' and then 'Roohi Afzana', is a horror-comedy directed by Hardik Mehta. 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.
