Stree is based on a urban legend, in which a ghost (named Stree by the villagers) is suspected to be behind the mysterious disappearances of the men. The film received fabulous reviews and NDTV reviewer Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "Stree plays an unwavering hand in demonstrating that dread can be unbridled fun when it serves a larger thematic purpose."
With the success of Stree in her kitty, Shraddha Kapoor now awaits the release of batti Gul Meter Chalu, in which she has been cast opposite Shahid Kapoor. The film deals with the issue of electricity theft and it also stars Yami Gautam in a pivotal role.
