Rajkummar Rao to play goon in his next horror comedy
The horror-comedy, which rolls early next year, also features Varun Sharma. It will be filmed in Muradabad, Uttar Pradesh.
It chronicles the story of two village idiots who get stuck in a frightful situation but their fool-hardy shenanigans never stop.
Mrigdeep says Raj and Varun are a "stellar combination" that nobody has explored.
"Though Raj has proved his comic timing in films like 'Bareilly...' and 'Stree', here he will have to shed every bit of himself and get into the skin of this self-proclaimed village hero, who is actually a fool," he says.

The female lead has not been locked yet and Dinesh says much like "Stree", the female character will be "the focal point and game changer for the film."
The film is aiming for a January 2020 release. PTI
