Shraddha Kapoor Braves Illness to Attend Event in Lucknow; Shares Kadha Sipping Routine

In a display of fortitude and commitment, Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor was seen at the Mumbai airport this morning, despite not being in the pink of health. Sporting a casual yet stylish ensemble, Shraddha was on her way to Lucknow for a scheduled event. The “Stree” actress caught the attention of photographers and fans alike, as she chatted briefly with the paparazzi, revealing she’s not feeling too well. “Tabiyat down hai,” she was heard saying, a sentiment that would resonate with many of her admirers.

Despite her under-the-weather condition, Shraddha looked both relaxed and fashionable in an orange sports tee paired with blue jeans and comfortable sneakers. She adhered to health protocols by wearing a mask, which also subtly indicated her unwell state. With her hair left loose and accessorized with transparent glasses, she gracefully carried an elegant grey handbag. Her appearance reflected the ever-charming star who, despite battling illness, did not compromise on style and poise.

Once settled in her seat, Shraddha took to her Instagram stories to share a selfie, captioned, “Tabiyat down hai, lekin Lucknow aana hai toh aana hai.” This post further highlighted her dedication to her commitments, regardless of personal discomfort. Importantly, she was seen sipping on ‘kadha,’ a traditional Indian herbal drink often consumed for its health benefits, believed to bolster the immune system.

The video shared by photographer Viral Bhayani on Instagram shows Shraddha smiling and waving at onlookers even as she headed for her flight. The brief visual offering, now trending on social media, has won hearts for showing her unwavering dedication to her work.

On the professional front, Shraddha’s fans have much to look forward to. The gripping horror-comedy “Stree” is set to make its return to the big screen, much to the delight of its ardent followers. The sequel, starring Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor, and Pankaj Tripathi, is eagerly awaited. The production studios, Jio Studios, and Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, recently launched the teaser, setting the stage for what promises to be another thrilling ride.

Directed by Amar Kaushik, the “Stree 2” teaser continues the legacy of its predecessor. It hints at a gripping narrative where the village still feels the eerie presence of ‘Stree.’ The teaser showcases a large statue of ‘Stree’ revered as the village’s protector. However, the expressions of terror on the faces of Pankaj Tripathi and Rajkummar Rao hint that the horrors are far from over. This blend of fear and humor has become a signature of the franchise, appealing to a wide spectrum of viewers.

The teaser was shared on Maddock Films’ Instagram handle, with the caption, “Iss baar Chanderi mein azaadi ke din hoga aatank! The legend returns this INDEPENDENCE DAY, 15th August 2024!” This announcement has generated considerable buzz, as fans eagerly mark their calendars for the big release.

Following the monumental success of the 2018 film, “Stree,” which combined horror with humor to critical acclaim and box office success, the anticipation for the sequel is palpable. Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan’s decision to unveil the teaser digitally after an exclusive theatrical release has only amplified the excitement. The sneak peek attached to “Munjya” has strategically tied together the narrative arcs of “Stree,” “Munjya,” and “Bhediya,” courtesy of appearances by Abhishek Banerjee and Varun Dhawan, connecting the dots within this unique horror-comedy universe.

The teaser release of “Stree 2” took place in theatres ten days ago in a unique promotional strategy, screening alongside “Munjya” to capture the audience’s attention. The film promises to bring back the original ensemble cast, including Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana, and Abhishek Banerjee, ensuring a continuity that fans of the first movie would appreciate. “Stree 2” is anticipated to deliver the same chills and laughter, making for an unforgettable cinematic experience upon its release on August 15, 2024.

Interestingly, “Stree 2” will find itself in a box office clash with two other major releases—Akshay Kumar’s “Khel Khel Mein” and Allu Arjun’s “Pushpa 2.” This face-off adds another layer of excitement for cinema-goers, as each film brings something unique to the table.

In conclusion, while Shraddha Kapoor may be under the weather, her commitment to her craft and audiences remains unwavering. Her journey to Lucknow despite her illness and her upcoming movie “Stree 2” both underscore a dedication to continue entertaining her fans no matter what. Whether sipping on kadha to boost her health or stepping into her role for another hauntingly hilarious adventure, Shraddha Kapoor’s resilience shines through.
