The reason why the makers of Stree haven't announced a sequel yet was the long pending brawl between producer Dinesh Vijan and co-producers Raj & DK. The issue was regarding the profit percentage that Vijan was supposed to share with the duo but he refused to do so. Post his refusal, The Family Man makers were compelled to take the legal course. However, the said issue has now been sorted out by the concerned parties and they have issued a joint statement to confirm the same.

Coming to their long-pending issue, a source close to Raj & DK in his earlier interaction had said, "As per the contract, Dinesh Vijan was supposed to share 50 per cent of the profits with Raj-DK, if and when the film became profitable. Stree earned more than a Rs 100 crores at the Indian box office. Vijan seems to have got second thoughts over the profit-sharing when he saw the kind of money the film has made."
