Helmed by Amar Kaushik, Stree revolves around the people of Chanderi village, where the spirit of a woman attacks men at night during four days of a religious festival every year. Apart from Shraddha and Rajkummar, Stree also features Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana, and Abhishek Banerjee, among others. Nora Fatehi's special dance number Kamariya has gone on to become a rage.

Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the theatres in Japan reopened in mid-May when the government started easing restrictions. Initially, the cinema halls in Japan started with the screening of old Hollywood classics like Ben-Hur (1959), East of Eden (1955), Bonnie and Clyde (1969), and The Towering Inferno(1974).
