Stree 2 first look: Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor unveil theme of new film, its ‘O stree raksha karna’ this time
Stree 2 will revolve around ‘sarkate ka aatank’ (terror of the headless man). Almost the entire Stree cast is making a comeback.
The filming for Stree 2 has begun and this time the message for Stree is not be ‘O stree kal aana (Stree, come tomorrow)’ but ‘O stree raksha karna (Stree, please protect us)’. The film announcement came on Monday and showed a quiet lane of Chanderi with a ‘missing’ poster on a wall. The video shows the replacement of the words ‘kal aana (come tomorrow)' on the walls, which was shown in the 2018 film Stree, to ‘raksha karna (protect us).' It is followed by the theme of the film ‘sarkate ka aatank (terror of the headless man)’.
