Shraddha Kapoor is also happy with the film’s success. She said, “When Stree happened, I reacted to the narration as an audience. I was laughing, enjoying and I knew I had to be a part of this film. It was as simple as that. Rest nothing is in my hand. I don’t know which film of mine will do how much business.”
She further added, “It’s cool to see a content-driven film like Stree do these numbers. I hope I get to be a part of such films. I just hope this means that I’m offered good content films, that will be nice.”
