Speaking on behalf of Jio Studios, Jyoti Deshpande, President – Media & Entertainment, RIL said, "We have always invested in great stories with amazing production values, visually and by way of sound, which is best experienced on the big screen to have that ‘paisa vasool wali feeling’.  We owed it to our partners across the value chain, be it Maddock or the Cinema Exhibitors, to hold on to our fabulous film for this day and give it the grand release that it deserves and promise a complete entertainment experience to our audiences who have waited over a year for this. With Roohi, the magic of Cinema is back…come celebrate with us. We promise to make you smile under your masks".
Producer Dinesh, Maddock Films, commented, “At Maddock, we are all storytellers driven by our love for cinema in all its vibrant forms. 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. With a partner like Jio Studios that shares our passion for the eponymous "bada parda", we hope Roohi rekindles the audience's long standing romance with the silver screen. It is a film tailor made to be viewed  at your nearest theatre"
