Debutant director Amar Kaushik's horror-comedy Stree starring Rajkumar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor had a remarkable first week. Continuing its winning streak, Stree earned Rs 3.31 crore on Monday, taking its overall collection to 85.60 crore. Stree has yet again proved that the audience will always back films with good content.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced Stree Box Office Collection on social media. “#Stree maintains its strong pace on Day 11 [second Mon]... Biz was affected in some circuits due to bandh... [Week 2] Fri 4.39 cr, Sat 7.63 cr, Sun 9.88 cr, Mon 3.31 cr. Total: ₹ 85.60 cr. India biz”, he said.
As 3 September was the festival holiday of Janmashtami, Stree grossed Rs 9.70 crores and Rs 6.37 on 4 September, a weekday.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh writes that the horror comedy is trending better than Kartik Aryan starrer Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Alia Bhatt's Raazi.
The film has beaten the earnings of Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol's Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, which boasts of star-studded cameos from Salman Khan and Shatrughan Sinha.
The makers are also planning a sequel to the film, which will go on the floors by the end of 2019.
The film's unique plot that revolves around the popular legend of Nale Ba has garnered quite some attention. The centre of the popular folk legend is a vengeful female spirit that knocks on doors at night to prey on unsuspecting men. Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and Abhishek Banerjee appear in supporting roles.
