Lust Stories is a popular series on Netflix and it is all set to get a remake in Telugu. There will be four segments in this anthology and the first segment will have Amala Paul in the lead with Nandini Reddy wielding the megaphone. The three other segments will be directed by Tharun Bhascker, Sankalp Reddy, and Sandeep Vanga and the main leads are yet to be disclosed.
The Hindi version of Lust Stories had Kiara Advani, Radhika Apte, Bhumi Pednekar, and Manisha Koirala playing the lead roles in each segment with Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee, directing it respectively.
It may be noted here that Amala Paul was caught in a controversy over her last release Aadai. Directed by Rathna Kumar, it was an A certified film. Considering the huge popularity that Amala Paul enjoys in the Andhra and Telangana states, Aadai was released in Telugu as well.
Besides Amala Paul in the lead role, Aadai had Bijili Ramesh, Vivek Prasanna and Sarithran in important roles. Pradeep Kumar composed music for this flick with cinematography handled by Vijay Karthik Kanna and editing by Shafique Mohammed Ali. Aadai was bankrolled by V Studios.
Currently, Amala Paul has a slew of films in her kitty including Cadaver. She is not only playing the lead role in it and the film will also be her maiden production venture. Anoop Panicker is directing this film with Abhilash Pillai in charge of scripting. Reports are that the film is based on some real-life investigative cases. Amala Paul has done a lot of research to get into the skin of the character and had trained under a pathologist. In Tamil, the actor has Adho Andha Paravai Pola, which is in the post-production mode and in Malayalam she has director Blessy’s Aadujeevitham.
There are also reports that Amala might have landed an important role in Mani Ratnam’s film, an adaptation of Ponniyin Selvan. She also awaits the release of her maiden Hindi film which also stars Arjun Rampal.
