Stree 2 release date announced: Shraddha Kapoor's film takes Independence Day slot as Singham moves to Diwali

In a major development for Bollywood fans, Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan have officially announced the release date for Amar Kaushik's highly anticipated directorial, Stree 2. The film, starring Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao, is set to hit theaters on August 15. This strategic move follows a significant reshuffle in the release calendar of two major films under the Jio Studios banner.

Originally slated for a Diwali release, Stree 2 will now occupy the coveted Independence Day slot. This date was initially reserved for another Jio Studios production, Rohit Shetty's Singham Again, which features Ajay Devgn reprising his iconic role as Bajirao Singham. Singham Again has now been moved to the festive Diwali season, promising an action-packed celebration for fans later in the year.

Stree 2, produced by Maddock Films, continues the horror-comedy saga that began with the 2018 hit Stree. The original film, which blended scares with laughter, was a critical and commercial success, making the sequel one of the most awaited films of 2024. Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao's return in their beloved roles is expected to draw significant attention and excitement.

The release date shuffle showcases Jio Studios' strategic planning to optimize the performance of both films. Independence Day is a prime date for blockbuster releases, often resulting in higher footfalls and increased box office collections. Similarly, the Diwali release for Singham Again positions it perfectly for festive viewers seeking high-octane entertainment.

As fans mark their calendars for these new dates, the anticipation for Stree 2 and Singham Again continues to build, ensuring a thrilling year ahead for Bollywood enthusiasts.
