Doing a horror-comedy interesting, challenging: Rajkummar Rao

Mumbai (PTI): Actor Rajkummar Rao says shooting for his upcoming film “Stree”, a horror-comedy, was “interesting yet challenging.”

The “Newton” actor spent time with the locals in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh, to get the dialect and mannerisms proper for his role in the film, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor.

“Getting into the space of a horror-comedy like ‘Stree’ is quite interesting yet challenging. Also, it was great to interact with the locals of Chanderi to pick up their language nuances and mannerisms for my character. It was a great learning exercise,” Rajkummar said in a statement.

Written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the film is directed by Amar Kaushik and is produced by Dinesh Vijan through his company Maddock Films.

The writer duo is reuniting with Vijan after their 2013 zombie comedy “Go Goa Gone”, which they had also directed.
