Dil Bechara Actor Sanjana Sanghi to play the Lead in Stree’s prequel titled Munjha
According to a tabloid, producer Dinesh Vijan started a journey of building a horror-comedy universe starting with 2018’s Stree starring Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao followed by 2021’s Roohi with Rajkummar Rao, Janhvi Kapoor, and Varun Sharma, and 2022’s Bhediya with Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon.
As per this news, the movie Munjha starring Sanjana Sanghi would be the last film in this series and it will be a prequel to Stree. The original plan is to make characters cross paths with the advancement of the story. A similarity can easily be drawn between this horror-comedy universe to that of Rohit Shetty’s cop universe with Singham, Simmba, and Sooryavanshi.
Seemingly, Sanjana’s role was first offered to Alia Bhatt but she was keen on doing multi-heroine films. Therefore, she turned down the offer politely, as per reports. Stree’s director Amar Kaushik, who is directing Bhediya, will serve as a creative producer. On the other hand, Munjha will also see the directorial debut of Sriram Raghavan’s assistant Yogesh Chandekar. As per the latest news, the movie will supposedly go on floors this year itself!
