Rajkummar Rao’s new film Stree is performing exceptionally well at the box office while the actor has impressed fans and critics with his role of a tailor in the project as well. But when Rajkummar was informed about his part in the film, he came up with the most hilarious reaction ever as told by director Amar Kaushik during an interview with a leading website.
Amar met Rajkummar at film festivals quite frequently and had decided that only the actor could play Vicky in Stree. So, when he approached the 34-year-old actor for the film, Rajkummar, in a mirthful response, asked for a sewing machine to prepare for his character in the film.
"Raj and I would often meet during film festivals and when I had to choose an actor for the character Vicky (in Stree) it had to be Raj. When I told him that he was playing a tailor’s part, his immediate reaction was, ‘Okay, send a sewing machine to my house, I will learn tailoring’. Raj makes your work easy," Amar told the website.
Well, that’s just Rajkummar being Rajkummar!
Based on a female ghost who exists in Chanderi town, Stree casts Shraddha Kapoor opposite Rajkummar and co-stars Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee.
At the box office, meanwhile, Stree earned Rs 9.70 crore on the fourth day of its release. Its earnings on Sunday were Rs 13.57 crore – more than double of what it fared on its opening day. Stree’s first and second-day collections were Rs 6.82 crore and Rs 10.87 crore respectively. The film has earned a respectable total of Rs 41.97 crore so far.
Stree released on August 31 and clashed with Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se at the box office. Directed by Navaniat Singh, Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se stars Dharmendra and his sons Sunny and Bobby Deol in the principal roles.
