Rajkummar Rao learnt tailoring for ‘Stree’


Actor Rajkummar Rao has learnt the craft of tailoring to prepare himself for his role in the upcoming film “Stree”.

The “Newton” star underwent a month long training to master the skill and he learnt stitching a variety of clothing, from a blouse to a shirt.

“Once you sit on that chair, the coordination and reflexes are something else. You can cheat with a body double but I wanted to do everything and bought myself a sewing machine and hired a tailor in Mumbai to teach me how to sew. I also had a tailor guiding me on the sets in Chanderi,” Rao said in a statement.

“I took a couple of weeks off from other projects to prep for ‘Stree’. We finished the shoot in one go. The horror-comedy genre while unexplored in our country has a huge audience,” Rao said.

The horror comedy, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, is directed by Amar Kaushik and jointly produced by Dinesh Vijan and, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK.
