Do you mean is it possible to shrink the database files using the DBCC SHRINKFILE or DBCC SHRINKDATABASE commands? Yes it is possible. In general shrinking databases is not a good idea, whether replicated or not. Do it only for exceptional reasons and don't do it regularly.

Thanks David,
one more assist you have specified - [ Do it only for exceptional reasons ]
Can you specify the exceptional reasons or if anybody has faced such situation.
I need to know for my knowledge purpose.
