2018 has been an eventful year when it comes to path-breaking web series in India. One such flick that stood apart from the rest was none other than Netflix’s Lust Stories. Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Karan Johar, the series showcased stories of relationships from various generations, upbringing, caste, and socio economic status. One thing common among all these stories was lust. The series tried to remove the silence regarding unfulfilling sex life and stigma associated with it.
If you remember the movie also featured Bhumi Pednekar in lead role. The Dum Laga Ke Haisha actress impressed the audience and critics with her performance in the Netflix’s original. For the series she was directed by Zoya Akhtar.
Among the most liked scene from Lust Stories has been the Bhumi’s character making out with her male employer played by Neil Bhoopalan.
Talking about Lust Stories, the actress recently said that she had watched the series along with her mother.
In an interview, she said:
“I wouldn’t say I was not embarrassed. Of course, I was! But there was no discomfort once the scene was done. Honestly, I was amazed by the fact that how not a lot of people spoke about the particular scene and people spoke about everything in the film. I was surprised how much people have matured. It also speaks that if the intimate scenes are done the right way, there’s no negative or vulgar connotation attached to it. I think the audiences are mature enough to understand the finer nuances of a story.”
The Toilet: Ek Prem Katha actress will be soon seen portraying dacoit in Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonchiriya. The movie also stars Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Bajpayee and Ranvir Shorey. The trailer of the movie it out and as expected, it is immensely gripping and power packed. Set in the valleys of Chambal in the 1970s, the trailer is about inter-gang wars between who wanted to to acquire control of central India back then. Pednekar was elated to work in contemporary cinema and felt the movie has a great reflection of what is happening in the country.
