Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Stree is turning out to be one of the biggest surprise hits in Bollywood this year. The horror-thriller, which was made under a budget of Rs 15 crore has grossed Rs 90 crore so far.

Apparently, the film’s producers, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., now want to make the film in Telugu. The duo penned the script for the film too.

 

Speaking about the possible remake, Raj Nidimoru says, “We have plans to make the film in Telugu. Since the story is set against a Tirupati backdrop, we felt that it can be retold in Telugu too. Also, given that the film was a big success in Hindi, we believe that the Telugu audience will also accept the script.”
