Till Now you might saw the latest Bollywood Film Stree or might be watched the trailer of the film and its shows film is based on Ridiculous true based phenomenon.The director of movie Amar Kaushik said that though the film derives inspiration from Bangalore’s Nale Ba legend, it is a mix of several similar myths from across the country.
If legends are to be believed, a witch used to roam the streets of the city of Bangalore hunting for her prey.
Upon hearing a familiar voice, the person would open the door, and subsequently die within the next 24 hours. This legend spread like wildfire, wreaking havoc in the city.
The locals then found out a way to get rid of the witch. They started writing ‘Nale Ba‘ on the doors, or uttering the same from inside of the house to ward off the evil spirit. ‘Nale Ba‘ literally means ‘come tomorrow’ in Kannada.
The witch would leave when it saw ‘Nale Ba‘ written outside the homes. Apparently, this was the only way to send the spirit back.
This would ensure that the men in the city were safe for the day till the witch arrived again the next night. The cycle of the witch coming and knocking on the doors, hunting for prey would continue forever.
As time went by, the story died out, and so did the witch of Nale Ba. You’ll still find some of those markings in some parts of Bangalore even today. In fact, in certain places, April 1 is observed as Nale Ba day.
