The official trailer of Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Stree’ has just released, and Rao recently shared how he prepared for his role for the horror-comedy.
Rao, who plays a small town tailor in the film, made sure to devote his time and effort to do justice to the role, “I took a couple of weeks off from other projects to prep for ‘Stree’. We finished the shoot in one go. The horror-comedy genre while unexplored in our country has a huge audience,” Rao told PTI.
The preparations involved perfecting the Chanderi dialect with a coach and learning how to sew, “Once you sit on that chair, the coordination and reflexes are something else. You can cheat with a body double but I wanted to do everything and bought myself a sewing machine and hired a tailor in Mumbai to teach me how to sew. I also had a tailor guiding me on the sets in Chanderi.”, Rao shared.
‘Stree’ also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurana and will release on 31st August.
