Stree is based on an urban legend set in a small village named Chanderi in Bhopal. The story is inspired by the Karnataka case of Nale Ba, which took place in the 1990s. According to people, a witch roamed around the lanes and knocked at doors, imitating a voice of someone known to the resident. The people who answered the door died mysteriously. The people then started writing ‘Nale Ba’ on the walls, which means “come tomorrow“, to avoid the witch.
Calling the film thrill of horror along with laughter, the celebrities have definitely given the film an amazing review. Now, it’s time to wait for the audience’s reaction.
The film is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan, Krishna DK, and Raj Nidimoru.
Starring Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi, Stree is slated to release on August 31.
