Rajkumar Rao took to the micro blogging website and posted a picture from the shoot of his upcoming horror comedy ‘Stree’. Makers have got a very interesting line up of actors in there with the prolific Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurana. Pankaj has recently worked with Raj in ‘Newton’ though it was not a mad cap humor but a rather sensitive and realistic subject. Both of the made the audience laugh a lot with their extremely humorous performances in Ayushman Khurana starrer ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’.
Ayushman’s brother Aparshakti is known for his comic timing from the two films he did by the name of ‘Dangal’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’. He had supporting roles in those films and similar is the cast with ‘Stree’. Raj mentioned that film is on the last leg of shooting and they will be done with the production part very soon to move towards the post production. Shraddha Kapoor, who is playing an important role in the film was not there at the time and Raj pointed out that they are missing here. A pattern can be noticed here with the production of this film right after the release of ‘Golmaal Again’ which went on to become a blockbuster in the horror comedy genre.
People find it easier to play a safe bet in cinema just like life which is why a genre is mushed to death by many makers if one film of that has been successful. Since horror comedy genre worked once and it will become an easy ladder to climb for other people till it starts falling on their faces again and they are forced to do something new. Raj is a cult already in the short span of his career and walks around with a lot of credibility on his back as should be the case with this one as well.
