Recently in a recent media interaction, Shraddha Kapoor, who was promoting her upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, was asked if Rajkummar is the reason why Stree is doing extremely well at the box office and Shraddha's answer won all our hearts. She told the media, "You know, I’ve already said this before as well but Raj is irreplaceable. He is such a nice person more than anything, his energy is so addictive and nice. Hence, it is without a doubt true that only Raj could’ve done his character as good as he did. As an actor, he always rises above the role, there’s so much that he added in this role as well of his own. He made it own, it was meant to be Raj’s only!" Watch this space for further updates.
