A horror comedy starring Rajkumar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor gets a titled called ‘Stree’. Shooting of the film has just started and Rajkumar Rao took to twitter to share this detail. Rajkumar Rao has done a horror film by the name of Ragini MMS very early in his career and he has dabbled comedy excellently in Bareilly Ki Barfi while Shraddha is new to both the territories having done dramatic roles for her most of her career as of now. Stree which means a lady in sanskrit denotes that film is about a woman but a comedy can take many twists in the making.
Film will be directed by Amar Kaushik and written by Go Goa Gone famed director/writer duo Raj and DK. Raj and DK’s last directorial venture A Gentleman fell flat on it’s face as it did not get box office or critical acclaim but they are known to create witty comedies like 99 and bits of Shor in the City. Film is produced by Dinesh Vijan, Raj and DK and as of yet it does not have a release date. Film is said to be a medium budget adventure placed around the character of Shraddha Kapoor.
Since Golmaal Again became a super hit which is a horror comedy it is not wrong to assume that many film makers would want to explore this genre. Raj and DK are usually not known to follow formulas or trends of contemporary film market but a flop like A Gentleman affects everyone. It’s he first time when Raj Rao and Shraddha are working together because both of their career graphs are polar opposite. Raj is known to be one of the best actors in the history of Hindi cinema while the views on Shraddha are rather radical especially after her performance as Haseena Parkar. It will be interesting to see both these energies collide together or just Shraddha acting for a change.
