Rajkummar Rao learns to sew for ‘Stree’: “I wanted to do everything”


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.
