Debutant director Amar Kaushik's Stree clashed with Dharmendra's Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se at the box office. According to a report in Box Office India, Yamla Pagla Deewana: Phir Se has managed to collect only Rs. 8.25 crore so far.
Talking about Stree's success, an overwhelmed Shraddha Kapoor said, "I have been reading all the messages about Stree from my close friends, family, and my lovely fans. The response is overwhelming, to say the least. I am extremely grateful to my director, producers, and writers for making me a part of this amazing film."
Stree is inspired by the folk legend of Nale Ba, in which a female spirit roams around haunting unsuspecting men. Along with Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor, Stree also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana and Abhishek Banerjee in pivotal roles.
Giving it 2.5 stars, India Today film critic Suhani Singh in her review of Stree wrote, "The writers also cleverly twist Hindi cinema's heavily romanticised ploy of 'palat' into horror's rule of don't look back."
