Mumbai: Actors Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Stree, a horror comedy, is scheduled to hit the screens on 31 August. Rajkummar and Shraddha on Wednesday shared a 59-second video on social media.
Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor may or may not be the one scaring people in Stree but the actor says she herself gets scared easily.
In the film, Shraddha apparently plays a ghost. Without revealing many details about her role in Stree, Shraddha said, “People don’t know whether I am Stree or not. There has to be a sense of mystery around my character, we made sure we maintain that. In horror films it is all about how well you built up the scare quotient, it is quite interesting. In real life, I get scared easily but I used to like watching Zee horror show. I also liked The Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Ring.”
Shraddha said she is having fun with the mystery. “People don’t know whether I am Stree or not. There has to be a sense of mystery around my character, we made sure we maintain that.
The 31-year-old actor said it was great to work with performers like Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi in the film.
“To get the opportunity to work with them was a treat. I would actually be nervous but I would end up having so much fun with them. I have learnt so much just by observing them. It is amazing how they work,” Shraddha said.
Stree, also starring Rajkummar Rao, is set in a small town Chanderi, where men disappear mysteriously. Chanderi is haunted by a ghost, whom the residents have never seen. Streealso stars Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurrana.
“I was laughing so hard after hearing the narration. We are in a good time that only content-driven films are doing well,” Shraddha added.
Meanwhile, apart from Stree, Shraddha Kapoor has Batti Gul Meter Chalu with Shahid Kapoor up for release. The film also stars Yami Gautam and deals with the issue of power theft.
