Lust Stories, an anthology film directed by Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banerjee, will be released worldwide exclusively on Netflix in June, according to a press release. The production comprises four films on the themes of love and lust. The four directors had previously collaborated on the 2013 anthology film Bombay Talkies.
Ashi Dua, who bankrolled Bombay Talkies, has produced Lust Stories with Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP.
Lust Stories stars Radhika Apte, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Kiara Advani and Neha Dhupia. Kaushal, Advani and Dhupia will feature in Johar’s short film, while Koirala is a part of Banerjee’s short film. Apte is reportedly a part of Kashyap’s short film.
Lust Stories was initially billed as a sequel to Bombay Talkies, and initial reports called the film Bombay Talkies 2. However, Viacom 18, which co-produced Bombay Talkies, reportedly sent a legal notice to Dua over the film’s title. Dua has claimed that the new film is not connected to Bombay Talkies.
