Stree is an awesome film and all that. But the ending really unnerved us. So it was only obvious for us to know what the makers were thinking. We spoke to producer Dinesh Vijan for the same and he told us, "It (the ending) teases them, a little bit. The whole idea is that of a franchise. It's setting up the second part. The sequel will answer all the questions. I understand the grouse, but it was intentional. We will make it up to you in the second one." You better do that, Dinesh! Meanwhile, it kills no one to speculate what the ending actually meant. We did the same when Inception released. Consensus on that is yet to be reached. Now there are a few conspiracy theories that are doing the rounds of the internet regarding Stree's ending. Let's tell you a bit about all three of them...
Theory 1: Shraddha was always the Stree
Aparshakti Khurrana comes to the conclusion at one point in the film that Shraddha is Stree because nobody knows her name. She always meets Vicky outside the temple and never goes inside it. All that made him believe that Stree is none other than Shraddha herself. This could be a legit reasoning because she disappears the moment her work is done. How does she manage to do it all the time?
Theory 2: Women Empowerment agenda
There's also a story which has convinced many. Since Stree talks about respecting women and her love, it could become a cause that the spirit can take up. The ghost will now haunt the villages where women are mistreated and bring the men to book. Quite a plausible explanation, given the fact that she made the men of Chanderi toe the line and respect her.
Theory 3: Shraddha wants Stree's powers for herself
Shraddha Kapoor reveals in the film that she has been reading up a lot about Stree and the folklore attached to her. She even gets a smitten Rajkummar Rao to bring her some weird stuff for some kind of a ritual which she was shown using in the film. In the end, she even attaches the choti to her hair and becomes one of them. Clearly, she is obsessed with the power that Stree possesses and wanted to make it hers.
Guess what we aren't the only ones who are guessing about the ending even now. Here are a few Twitter users who are also wreaking their brains to figure it out.
Now like Dinesh Vijan said, the truth will be revealed in the sequel, hopefully.
