Dinesh Vijan’s horror comedy, ‘Stree’, has set a record breaking number on its first weekend. The film has seen a massive growth from Friday to Sunday and has garnered a total of Rs 32.07 crore. A visibly excited Dinesh Vijan said, “We expected to open well as the entire campaign got a fantastic response and we were confident that the audiences would love the film. But this kind of love and appreciation is overwhelming! This year has been super for the industry and I am elated that ‘Stree’ could be part of it.” The Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer had intrigued audiences and critics alike and strong word of mouth publicity has increased footfalls at the theatres.
The makers are even more elated since the entire weekend collection is pure profit, they had recovered the money pre-release through other avenues such as music, digital and satellite. With the positive response film has been receiving, it is expected to hold strong over the week. ‘Stree’ is produced by Dinesh Vijan, Raj & DK and directed by Amar Kaushik.
