Just after dropping the trailer of his upcoming horror-comedy film Stree, Rajkummar Rao shared a one-minute teaser of his performance in the Shraddha Kapoor-starrer. The Newton actor is playing the role of a tailor in the film, which is based on the folklore of witches in the rural places of India. Sharing the video, he wrote, “Isse pehle ki #Stree aa jaaye, aap bhi soch lijiye ki apne ghar ke mardo ke liye kya silwaana hai #VickyTheTailor se..”
Rajkummar Rao can be seen in a never-before avatar for the Amar Kaushik-directorial. His role is an unusual blend of horror and fun in the film.
