Filmmaker Karan Johar is one of the directors of the Netflix anthology film ‘Lust Stories’, based on sex taboos and complex relationships. The content is not only explicit and parental advisory, but something unique for the Indian audience. After ‘Veere Di Wedding‘, Karan has portrayed the rare subject of female sexuality through Kiara Advani’s ‘masturbation scene’.
Kiara Advani, who made her mark with ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’, is a known Telugu actress. Karan Johar’s ‘Lust Stories’ has certainly upped her acting skills and performance.
Kiara herself shared this Instagram image from ‘Lust Stories’. The other directors of this short film are Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, and Dibakar Banerjee.
In fact, Kiara was recently trolled for sharing this image with Karan and Anurag Kashyap, when users commented about nepotism in this one frame.
While audiences still can’t get over Swara Bhaskar’s scene, Kiara Advani’s ‘masturbation scene’ is a 1.47-minute-long bold performance which showcases the female sexual desires.
Kiara’s scene made headlines and is now a viral thing on the internet, after Swara Bhaskar did a similar bold move in ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
In the film, Kiara, a newly married woman, isn’t happy with her sexually naive husband (Vicky Kaushal). Her character uses a vibrator to activate her hormones, with a ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ track playing in the background. Have a look:
Karan used the title track of his 2001 film, sung by legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and played it as a background score for Kiara’s bold scene. Here’s the original:
However, Karan’s reported use of the song, featuring Jaya Bachchan, has irked Lata Mangeshkar‘s family. As per reports, they didn’t like her iconic song from K3G for an ‘orgasm’ scene. A member was quoted:
“Why did Karan Johar use Lata Didi’s immortal song in such an embarrassing situation? I still remember how ecstatic Karan was when Didi had recorded the song for Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Why turn the dream song into a nightmare now?”
Adding to the woes, they are also upset that Karan didn’t inform Lata about using her song. The family member further added, “We (Mangeshkars) wonder why he needed to use a bhajan-like song sung in the most revered voice of Lataji to show his heroine in an orgasmic state”.
However, instead of siding with the family, netizines quickly trolled Lata and her family, asking who has the copyright to her songs and why were they watching Netflix! Have a look:
Watch this Netflix short film to watch what all the ruckus is all about. It’s totally worth it!
