The horror comedy, Stree that intrigued everyone with its unique storyline, has now surprised us with its Box Office opening! Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer has surpassed all trade and analytic figures on its release day, and left the makers very happy!
The movie was expected to run in the shadow of Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se. But Stree has subverted the expectations and absolutely demolished the competition. In comparison, Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se has earned a paltry Rs 3.62 crore.
The Amar Kaushik directorial is ruling over the box office with positive reviews from movie-goers.
‘Stree’ is an interesting mix of horror with fun and is based on a true phenomenon. The story is set in a small town where it is believed that there was a beautiful woman, who left every man awestruck with her beauty, but only one man loved her truly.
The film also stars actor Pankaj Tripathi and was released on August 31.
