Shraddha Kapoor addressed the News18 Rising India- She Shakti conclave, where she revealed that her role in the film Stree was a cameo rather than a significant part of the movie. Sharing how she was the one who chose to play a ghost in Stree, Shraddha said, “When the film was offered to me, I was expected to play a cameo, a special appearance. I was just so amazed and entertained by the premise of the film. It had a larger social message that was put across entertainingly. So, I asked them, ‘Can I be a part of the cast? Can this not be a special appearance? I don’t want to feel like this is a special appearance.’ And they agreed. And for me to be the frontrunner, to be on the poster of the film — I felt proud.”

Commenting on the representation of women in Indian cinema Shraddha praised Alia Bhatt and Kangana Ranaut, for their performance and said, “With films like Gangubai [Kathiawadi], Raazi, Neerja, there’s Manikarnika, some of them are blockbusters, some of them are not. There’s again Haseena Parkar, Thalaivii. So I feel that people are on the lookout for strong female characters and strong stories. Frankly I feel, because we are in a good space right now, I would be open to any interesting stories.”
