After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'light a candle to show unity' appeal, Bollywood directors Raj & DK have taken it forward with a still from film 'Stree'


'Happy Ending' director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K, known for their quirky film making and unique sense of style and humour, have shared an interesting twist to the appeal made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier on Friday. Urging their followers to avoid any gathering while following the PM's instructions on Sunday, April 5, the duo has shared a still from their 2018 comedy horror film Stree through their social media account. It features actors Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Aparshakti Khurana, Pankaj Tripathi and Abhishek Kapoor walking together with torches in their hands.

Raj & DK captioned the post, "Don’t take out processions carrying mashaals! Light a diya at home :) #stree #stayhomesavelives"
