After Stree, Rajkummar Rao and producer Dinesh Vijan is all set to collaborate again on a horror comedy based in Uttar Pradesh. The duo is also working on their next film, Made In China, co-starring Mouni Roy.
"The film will be shot in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh. We will start the recce now and we are looking at rolling it next year," Vijan said in a statement.
"Rajkummar plays a small-time goon whose plans go haywire when he discovers that he might be in store for some supernatural encounters. You can be sure he will be as riveting as ladies' tailor in Stree, chasing after a ghost," he added.

Thank you so much for all the love that you all are showering on our #Stree, and also, thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes. This was the best, most blessed birthday ever. Big thank you from all of us @shraddhakapoor @amarkaushik #DineshVijan @rajanddk @Krishna.dk @nowitsabhi @aparshakti_khurana @maddockfilms. Book your tickets now. 🙏❤️
The film will be released in January 2020. The female lead is yet to be finalised. "It's a very interesting character and we will probably lock the name by next month," said Vijan. He also shared that it is not a sequel to this year's hit film Stree.
"This is an entirely new concept and quite different from Stree. The only common factor here is Rajkummar Rao. I have been fortunate to find like-minded souls... all who have helped us achieve what we have today," he said.
Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, who had helmed Fukrey and Fukrey Returns, will be collaborating with Vijan for the upcoming horror-comedy as a co-producer. Lamba is currently working on the third instalment of Excel Entertainment's Fukrey franchise and a thriller with the production house.
Meanwhile, Stree bagged five awards at the Star Screen Awards. It won the best film, best actor (Rajkummar), most promising debutant director (Amar Kaushik), best actor in a supporting role (Pankaj Tripathi) and best dialogue (Sumit Arora).
