Dinesh Vijan, who is currently working on his production venture Stree, says actress Shraddha Kapoor has a quirkiness which has not yet been explored.
On casting Kapoor and actor Rajkummar Rao for Stree, Vijan said: “I wanted to work with Rajkummar for a while and I had met Shraddha on a flight and I believed that she had this quirkiness which I feel has not been explored.”
Vijan believes Kapoor will be remembered for her role in Stree, which is directed by Amar Kaushik.
“I feel that she was itching to do a comedy for while. And I feel her look and the way she is performing in this film is fantastic. I feel that with this film she will be remembered,” Vijan added.
Stree is a horror-comedy and is being produced by Maddock Films.
The film is based on an urban legend set in a small village named Chanderi in Bhopal and music-composer duo Sachin-Jigar have scored the album.
For Vijan, Stree is a “clutter breaking” genre of horror-comedy.
“This is a pure homebred horror-comedy based on characters in a small town. It’s based on an urban legend. These things excited me... With Golmaal Again, what it’s done to the genre... It is waiting to be further explored,” he added.
Vijan’s next production venture is Arjun Patiala, a buddy cop film, which also stars Varun Sharma and Kriti Sanon.
