Rajkummar Rao has carved a niche for him by proving his mettle with Newton, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Omerta and Trapped, among many others. And now, he's getting ready for his upcoming movie, Stree with Shraddha Kapoor and we're hearing more about their experience shooting this horror comedy.
Helmed by Amar Kaushik, the film is about an urban legend called 'Nale Ba'. Recently, the team of Stree was shooting in a cave in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh. The makers of the film picked this isolated location to add to the intensity of the scene.
While shooting for a scene there, Rajkummar sprint out of the cave when he heard the sound of loud squeaks of bats residing in the cave. Looks like he is afraid of bats.
