Stree is packed with hilarious lines, smart performances along with spooky undertones. Directed by debutant Amar Kaushik and written by Go Goa Gone fame Raj Nidimoru, Krishna DK, Stree has been produced by Dinesh Vijan. Set in the town of Chanderi, the movie is based on a 'ridiculous' phenomenon in which a spirit named Stree whisks away men during four days of puja. While Rao plays the role of famous tailor Vicky, Shraddha Kapoor is the mysterious girl adding to the eerie atmosphere. The movie also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Vijay Raaz, Atul Shrivastava, Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee in pivotal roles.
''Stree is a new experience for me. I've been doing very serious films like Omerta, Aligarh and Newton. But then I had fun doing Bareilly Ki Barfi and Fanney Khan where there were lots of laughs to lean on. Stree has just a bit of the spooky feeling and loads of laughter. It was fun to do. This is director Amar Kaushik's first feature. And the film is produced by Raj and DK who have directed one of my favourite horror comedies Go Goa Gone,'' Rao said in an interview.
