The brief scene is hilarious but also chilling look at the supernatural entity that looms large in the horror comedy.
Watch: Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi pose questions for Stree
Mumbai - 20 Aug 2018 15:34 IST
It's night time and a group of four (Abhishek Banerjee, Aparshakti Khurana, Pankaj Tripathi and Rajkummar Rao) are huddled around an Ouija board to talk to the spirits and get some answers in the dialogue promo from the upcoming film Stree.
Banerjee kicks things off asking the spirit about his lacking love life, while Khurana wants to know when he'll get married. While they argue about whether asking these questions makes sense, Rajkummar as Vicky instead wonders if Stree's next victim is in the room?
The shriveled skeleton hand bone on the board turns its way first to each one of them, stopping finally at Banerjee. "Girlfriend mangi thi, bhootni mil gayi [I asked for a girlfriend, I got a ghost instead]," he blurts. Vicky finally caves and laughingly admits that it was him controlling the board with a magnet.
There's no such thing as a spirit, Vicky insists, until ominously the hand skeleton turns its attention on him.
Stree, directed by Amar Kaushik, is due to be released on 31 August 2018.
