The spooky, yet funny film, directed by Amar Kaushik and has been performing well since opening day.
Before its release, Stree’s concurrent release Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se was being considered the frontrunner, but with highly positive reviews and good word-of-mouth, Stree has emerged as the dark horse, while Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se crumbled.
