'Lust Stories' to get a Telugu remake

Netflix's Lust Stories, which released in 2018, sparked a lot of debate among film buffs. The anthology film is all set to get its Telugu remake, which will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The anthology film, which was finalised long back, is finally taking shape.

The latest update is that Amala Paul has been roped in as the leading lady for one of the segments in the film. Nandini Reddy, who rose to fame with Oh Baby recently, handpicked the Aadai girl to play the lead role in her segment. The shooting of the film commenced recently.

Sources reveal that Amala Paul will be essaying a bold role yet again after Aadai (Aame in Telugu). This segment will also feature Jagapathi Babu as one of the actors.

Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal played the lead roles in Karan Johar's segment in Lust Stories. It is unclear whether Amala Paul will reprise Kiara Advani's role in the film. An official announcement regarding the same will be out in the coming days.

A source told Deccan Chronicle, "Nandini Reddy chose Amala for her natural acting, realistic performance and her ability to effortlessly get into the skin of the character. As the role demands raw and natural performance, Amala was a unanimous choice. And when the director approached the actress for the part, Amala was equally excited about the part. The first episode also features Jagapathi Babu in a key role."

The remaining three segments will be directed by Sankalp Reddy, Tharun Bhaskar and Sandeep Reddy Vanga.
