During the AMA session on Reddit, a fan asked Pankaj Tripathi to give an update about Stree 2 from Pankaj Tripathi.

Dinesh Vijan is developing a larger horror-comedy universe, including the Stree franchise. Other films and franchises in this universe include Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon's Bhediya, which is set for a sequel soon. This universe also includes the film Roohi, starring Janhvi Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Aparshakti Khurana, who made cameo appearances in Varun Dhawan's Bhediya. Shraddha Kapoor also appeared in a song from the film.
Stree returns, but to protect
Expanding the horror comedy universe, Stree makers had confirmed the sequel's launch at an official event last year. They also confirmed that Stree 2 is going to be bigger and better. The film is aiming to hit the big screens in August 2024. Sharing the news on social media, the cast wrote, "Ek Baar fir Chanderi mein faila aantank".
The first film in the franchise was based in Chanderi. It revolved around the urban legend that men in Chanderi were abducted by a witch if they step out alone at night. While in the first movie, people were running away from the Stree, the makers have hinted that in the sequel, people will seek Stree's protection. The phrase 'O Stree kal aana' has been replaced by ‘O Stree raksha karna’. Amar Kaushik, who directed the first film, will be helming the sequel too. In Stree 2, Rakummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi and Aparshakti Khurrana will also reprise their roles.
