Reflecting on the origins of the sequel, Kaushik acknowledged that the idea was always in the back of his mind while creating the first film in 2018. “Somewhere it [the sequel] was on my mind while making the first part,” he admitted. However, he emphasized that he did not want to pursue a sequel just for the sake of it.

“Ours was a small film, and we thought that we had a lot more to tell in terms of a story. There were a lot of questions that were left unanswered in the first part, and we had answers to all of them. But, we weren’t certain that we wanted to make a sequel. It was when we took Stree to the audiences, they loved it, there was a lot of speculation [about the next part], and the audiences demanded a sequel that we decided to make one,” Kaushik explained.

Kaushik, who has also directed Bala (2019) and Bhediya (2022), addressed the possibility of more sequels, saying, “There is a possibility of Stree 3, 4, and 5. But we first have to see how much the audiences accept the upcoming film.” He added, “As for me, if there is a demand, if I’m asked, I will make [Stree 3]. But, I won’t make it just for the sake of it. There should be demand [from the audience]. Story mere paas hain, demand ayegi toh main bana dunga.”

As the release date of Stree 2 approaches, Kaushik admits to feeling a bit nervous due to high expectations. “There’s a lot of expectation from the film, and that makes me nervous. But we’ve made a good film, with full honesty. So, we’re hoping the people will like it,” he shared.

When asked about the potential box office clash with Akshay Kumar’s Khel Khel Mein and John Abraham’s Vedhaa, Kaushik remained optimistic. “It is a big date, and since it is a long weekend, there’s a chance for everyone. All the films are good, and each one has its own audience. People will definitely watch all of them. I have no apprehension,” he said, adding, “Having said that, all I can say is that I’m not this film’s producer. It’s not my call. I’m a filmmaker [for this movie], and all I’ve tried to do is make a good film.”
