Netflix’s popular anthology Lust Stories is set to return with an all new ensemble cast including Kajol, Neena Gupta, Mrunal Thakur, Vijay Varma and Tamannaah Bhatia, reveals a teaser dropped by the streamer on Tuesday.
Produced by RSVP and Flying Unicorn Entertainment, Lust Stories 2 will feature four new stories, directed by four different filmmakers.
"Do you believe in lust at first sight? Because we’re going on a ride for the second time 👀 Brand new stories with a grand new cast - #LustStories2 is coming soon, only on Netflix! #LustStories2OnNetflix," the streamer wrote on Twitter alongside the teaser.
The teaser begins with a montage revealing the looks of the different characters in the film. We see a grey-haired Neena Gupta cooking a meal, Kajol in a homemaker avatar and Tamannaah Bhatia as a modern woman. Tillotama Shome, Mrunal Thakur and Amruta Shubhash appear on the screen next. The frame cuts to Neena, who advises someone that they must take a “test drive” before marriage, just like they do before buying cars.
As the peppy number Aaja Pyaar Karein starts playing in the background, we are shown glimpses of the passionate adventures of the various characters, including those played by Kumud Mishra, Angad Bedi and Vijay Varma. The teaser ends on a funny note. A male voice asks Neena, ‘Maa what nonsense is this?’, and she retorts ‘Is your birth the result of a nonsensical act?’
R Balki, Konkona Sensharma, Sujoy Ghosh and Amit Ravindernath Sharma will be helming Lust Stories 2. The stories in this film have been written by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, Konkona, Pooja Tolani, Balki, Rishi Virmani, Saurabh Choudhary and Sujoy.
The first edition of Lust Stories, which released on Netflix in 2018, was directed by Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap.
