The Amar Kaushik directorial venture is a horror-comedy that enjoys a cult following in India. Released two years ago on August 31, Stree went on to become a money-spinner at the box office that year, minting over Rs 100 crore. For a small-budget film like Stree, it was no mean feat.
Apart from Shraddha and Rajkummar in the lead, Stree starred Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana, Abhishek Banerjee, among others. Nora Fatehi was also seen in a couple of special numbers in the film.
The official Twitter handle of Maddock Films, the producers of Stree also shared the news on Twitter. They also wrote, “#Stree is all set to conquer #Japan! Releasing today, beware (sic)!”

Theatres in Japan reopened in mid-May when the government started easing restrictions following a dip in their Covid-19 cases. In May, cinema halls in Japan had started with the screening of old Hollywood classics like Ben-Hur (1959), East of Eden (1955), Bonnie and Clyde (1969), The Towering Inferno (1974), among others to lure the crowd.
