Director Nandini Reddy has refuted rumours about the Lust Stories remake in Telugu. Reports emerged that she will be directing one of the four segments in the remake but Nandini reveals that the makers have only retained the title while the story will be completely different from what it was in Hindi. Therefore, typically, it will be a new web series on Netflix and not a remake. She tweeted saying," For the nth time...... Lust stories in Telugu does NOT feature any of the stories already seen in Hindi.”

Reports emerged that the first segment will have Amala Paul in the lead with Nandini Reddy wielding the megaphone. The series will also have Jagapathy Babu in a pivotal role. The two other segments of Lust Stories will be directed by Tharun Bhascker and Sankalp Reddy, and the main leads are yet to be disclosed. Sandeep Reddy Vanga was also in talks to direct a segment but the director walked out of the project for various reasons.
RSVP, the production house which produced the Hindi version of Lust Stories is bankrolling its Telugu version as well. It may be noted that 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.
Nandini Reddy’s last film release was Oh Baby, which had Samantha Akkineni in the lead role. The film has turned out to be a box office success with positive reviews pouring in. Oh Baby is the remake of the South Korean comedy-drama film that was directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk. Samantha played the younger version and veteran actor Lakshmi played the senior version. Oh Baby’s star cast also included Urvashi, Snigdha, Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh and Naga Shaurya in important roles. The film was bankrolled by Sunita Tati under the banner People's Media Factory and Suresh Productions. Mickey J. Meyer composed music for this film.
