Stree: Will Shraddha Kapoor reprise her role for prequel to Dinesh Vijan’s horror comedy?

It seems that Stree is gearing up to make yet another appearance in Dinesh Vijan’s popular horror comedy universe. It was announced that a prequel to Stree is in the works, which will see Shraddha Kapoor reprise her role from the 2018 film.

According to a report in Peeping Moon, Vijan is currently working on a number of horror comedy projects, and is planning to build a cinematic universe of the same. The makers are reportedly planning to helm a film revolving around the backstory of Shraddha’s character in the 2018 film, and the ‘complications’ the character’s arrival brought. The actress is expected to reprise her role in the prequel.

A source told the portal that the film will be helmed by Aditya Sarpotdar, and the project is expected to go on floors in August this year. The director is currently working on another horror comedy film called Kakuda. The film, starring Sonakshi Sinha, Riteish Deshmukh, and Saqib Saleem is expected to be an OTT release. The report stated that the director had already finished post production work on Kakuda and would start prepping for the Stree prequel before it goes on floors.

The upcoming film will be a part of Vijan’s horror comedy universe, which consists of Stree, Janhvi Kapoor’s Roohi (2021) and Varun Dhawan’s upcoming Bhediya (2022). Besides these, the makers are also working on the sequels to Stree and Roohi as well, in which Shraddha and Janhvi are expected to reprise their roles.

Meanwhile, Shraddha is currently working on Luv Ranjan’s upcoming directorial, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor. The actress will also be seen in the upcoming Naagin films, helmed by Vishal Furia. As the project required a lot of VFX, the production on the project had been delayed.
