Banerjee, who hails from Delhi, candidly expressed his initial reservations about essaying the role of Jaana, known for his endearing demeanour. "One day Amar Kaushik called me and said he was doing a film called Stree. And interestingly enough and thankfully enough, he said, 'Why don’t you audition for Jaana?' I didn’t even like the character," Banerjee revealed to The Quint in an interview.

The actor shed light on the cultural nuances that initially deterred him from embracing the role, stating, "I am from Delhi and Delhi people don’t like Chomu characters." However, Banerjee credited director Amar Kaushik's vision for ultimately steering him towards embracing the character.

Acknowledging the transformative power of Kaushik's direction and the love Jaana received from the audience, Banerjee expressed gratitude for the opportunity, highlighting the director's ability to envision beyond conventional stereotypes. "Thanks to Amar Kaushik’s vision, I am here," Banerjee remarked, emphasizing the pivotal role of directors in fostering creative exploration.

Stree 2 promises to deliver a thrilling blend of horror and humour.
