The first look of Shraddha Kapoor‘s upcoming horror comedy Stree is out and netizens are comparing it with The Nun from the Conjuring series.
The image is from Shraddha Kapoor’s upcoming horror comedy, Stree and we must say, it shook us. The teaser of the movie which came out a month ago has garnered over two million views. Rajkummar Rao plays the role of a tailor and Shraddha is playing the ghost.
Stree also stars Rajkummar in the lead role. Directed by Amar Kaushik, the story revolves around the urban legend of “Nale Ba” (means ‘come tomorrow’ in Kannada) that went viral in Karnataka during the 1990s.
There was a belief that a witch would roam the streets at night and knock on the doors. The witch would deceive people by taking out the voices of their kin and enter the house. Whoever opens the door is believed to die.
To cope with this, the residents of the area would write “Nale Ba” outside their doors and walls of their houses which would make the witch go away and the cycle would repeat.
Shraddha is also making her Telugu debut in Prabhas' Saaho. The movie is being shot simultaneously in three languages Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
While the Hollywood film The Nun will be releasing on September 7, Stree will hit the theatres a week earlier, on August 31.
