Talking more about playing a happy-go-lucky girl in the film, the 31-year-old actor said her Nauti is completely opposite of Stree. “I had to measure my words in Stree and there was a certain mystery around my character. For Nauti, there is no mystery. She is very vocal. She is a very fun person. I think it’s so fascinating that with each film, you get to play a different character and I had a great time playing Nauti,” the actor said.

Laughing at the big question about Stree’s probable sequel and whether Shraddha will become the next Stree, the actor said, “I don’t know. I hope I’m there. This is the question my producer and director can answer the best.”

Batti Gul Meter Chalu also stars Yami Gautam, Divyendu Sharma and Supriya Pilgaonkar. It releases on September 21.
