Star Wars star Mark Hamill left fans shocked when he revealed he never met his onscreen mother Natalie Portman and now the Hollywood star has replied to the veteran actor, saying she would love to see him.
He is arguably one of the best acting talents that has happened to Bollywood in the last decade and yet over the past few years Ranbir Kapoor has been through a series of box-office failures.

Five years after Bombay Talkies brought them together for the first time, Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banerjee are back with Lust Stories, a Netflix original. The short films, starring Radhika Apte, Bhumi Pednekar, Manisha Koirala, Sanjay Kapoor, Neha Dhupia and Vicky Kaushal revolve around ‘the themes of love and lust’.
The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘lust’ as ‘strong sexual desire’. As the name suggests, lust is the pivot around which the narrative of Lust Stories, an anthology of four shorts that’s currently beaming on Netflix, revolves. The lust in Lust Stories is from a woman’s perspective, and more importantly, how it doesn’t shame her. On the contrary, lust empowers and emboldens the women in these four stories.
