Stree, hailed as one of the most entertaining horror comedies ever made in Bollywood, completed 5 years today. Released on August 31, 2018, the film starred Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi, Abhishek Banerjee and Aparshakti Khurana. It was directed by Amar Kaushik.
On the 5th anniversary of Stree, Shraddha said in a statement, "Super thrilled that Stree has completed 5 years to it's release! The film will continue to hold an extremely special place in my heart. I fondly remember, the moment I heard the script, I knew I wanted to be a part of this universe created by Amar and Dinesh. To create an entertaining film with relevant social messages is no simple feat at all and Dinesh, Amar, Raj & DK just nailed it. Super grateful for the immense love for it and the excitement the audiences have for Stree 2.”
Abhishek Banerjee, who played Janaa, said, "Five years have passed since Janaa came to life. The journey this character has taken has been beyond my wildest imagination. Starting with 'Stree' and expanding this characters’ universe, Janaa's evolution has been remarkable. While I began my film journey with darker roles, portraying Janaa gave me the opportunity to embrace the humorous facets of my craft. I have enjoyed every minute of playing Janna. I have related to this character and have connected well with it. I am elated with the love that audience has showered on me for playing Janna and equally excited that Janna is going to come back soon with Stree 2."
Stree, which was a blockbuster at the box office, is getting a sequel. Stree 2 went on floors earlier this year in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh. Sharing an announcement, Shraddha wrote on Instagram, "Ek baar phir चंदेरी में फैला aatank! स्त्री २ filming begins! Aa rahi hai woh- August 2024!" It reunites her with Rajkummar, Abhishek, Pankaj and Aparshakti.

The plot of Stree is based on the urban legend Nale Ba (Come Tomorrow) of Karnataka. The lore surrounds a witch who abducts men at night when they are alone and only leaves their clothes behind.
