Mahanati director to helm Telugu Lust Stories

We are already aware that Netflix is making its first Telugu original film which is an anthology. The film runs on the lines of Hindi film Lust Stories but will not be a remake of it. The latest we hear is that Nag Ashwin, who earlier made Yevade Subrahmanyam and Mahanati, will direct one of the four segments of this film.

Nag Ashwin got wide fame with his national award-winning film Mahanati. Apparently, the director readily accepted when the offer came to him as he wanted to explore the digital space which gives a lot of freedom for a filmmaker. It also opens the space for introducing new talent to the industry. As the Telugu audience always encouraged his content-driven subjects, Nag Ashwin wants to prove his mettle once again with this film. The director will soon finalize the cast and crew of his segment.
Meanwhile, the other three segments are being directed by Tharun Bhascker, Nandini Reddy and Sankalp Reddy. Popular actress Eesha Rebba is acting in Sankalp Reddy's segment. The cast details of the other directors' segments are not finalized yet. The film will stream on Netflix in the second half of 2020. Stay tuned for more updates on it.
