"We wish that your story is liked by the audience."
The teaser for Lust Stories 2 has been unveiled and while it features a new cast, it does not shy away from the lust.
Continuing on from the 2018 anthology film, the sequel sheds light on relationships from a woman’s perspective, stringing them together.
It begins with Neena Gupta saying that if someone test drives a car before buying it, one should have a similar sort of test drive before getting married.
Mrunal Thakur and Vijay Varma are also in the room.
Supposedly having their marriage arranged, they smile and shyly look away while Kajol laughs at Neena’s words.
As the teaser continues, Mrunal and Angad Bedi dance in a club while Kajol teases a man.
But a lot of attention was on Vijay and Tamannaah Bhatia, as the latter playfully poses for him before they are seen lying in bed together.
It is hinted that they may be having an affair as they are being watched.
The pair are rumoured to be dating in real life and fans were excited to see them together onscreen.
One wrote: “You and Tamannaah. Oh my God.”
Another said: “We wish that your story is liked by the audience.”
A third commented: “Can’t wait to see my most favourite actors Vijay and Tamannaah.”
The teaser also provided glimpses at Amruta Subhash, Kumud Mishra and Tillotama Shome, who make up the stellar cast.
It ends with an unknown voice asking Neena:
“What nonsense are you talking about?”
Neena bluntly responds: “The way you were born is nonsense.”
The four short films will be directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, R Balki, Konkona Sen Sharma and Sujoy Ghosh.
Lust Stories 2 is co-produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Ashi Dua. It is set to release on June 29, 2023.
Speaking about the anthology sequel, Ronnie said:
“We are proud to bring to our audiences the second edition of our Emmy Nominated anthology, Lust Stories 2.”
“We have seen all our films that we have done with Netflix like Mission Majnu, Lust Stories, Paava Kadhaigal, Raat Akeli Hai and Dhamaka, being recognised and loved by a global audience, making it the ideal platform for Lust Stories 2.
“Working with Netflix and Ashi Dua once again on this much-loved anthology made the entire process that much better and we can’t wait for our audiences to see the film.”
Ashi added: “After the resounding success of Lust Stories, we are so excited to come back with Lust Stories 2!
“As we once again collaborate with RSVP and Netflix our goal always is to support unique voices and showcase diverse and new stories with each project.”
The first instalment was directed by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee, with an all-star cast.
