The makers of the Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer horror comedy; Stree organised a special tour for the actors. The actors were taken on a tour of Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh.
Stree has been mostly shot in Chanderi which is a small yet beautiful town. It’s a town which has not been explored or visited much. Director Amar Kaushik, shortlisted the city for his film and he was keen on showcasing the rawness of each location in an elaborate manner.
For a song from the film titled Nazar Na Lag Jaaye, both Shraddha and Rajkummar were taken on a special tour around the city. The song was shot in the night in some of the most beautiful locations. One of the highlights of the song is the real mela the song has been shot in where many locals were involved in the shoot.
Shraddha and Rajkummar enjoyed the mela like the locals and even indulged in the games and went on a shopping spree at the local mela. Speaking about the town director Amar says, “The simplicity and warmth that you feel in Chanderi, make you fall in love with the city immediately. I was once passing through the city during my college days and was mesmerized by its beauty. So, when I read Stree, I just knew where to go! Shooting in a town like this with minimum facility for us could have been a task but it was made easy by the love and support we received from the locals. Not only we got the perfect look for our film, the entire crew had a blast working in Chanderi – right from enjoying the local food to shopping for sarees! Chanderi made it memorable for all of us.”
Produced by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films Stree is set to release on 31 August.
