Experience Mount Fuji phenomenon in Lust Stories 2: Trailer out now

The trailer of Lust Stories 2 is now out. Brace yourselves as Netflix drops the scintillating trailer for the much-awaited second edition of its Emmy-nominated anthology, Lust Stories 2. Produced by the visionary duo of Ashi Dua and Ronnie Screwvala, Lust Stories 2 is poised to make waves when it premieres exclusively on Netflix on June 29, the trailer promises four intriguing stories.

Four extraordinary directors—Amit Ravindernath Sharma, Konkona Sen Sharma, R. Balki, and Sujoy Ghosh—invite audiences into a realm where desire takes center stage, presenting their distinct visions of lust. With an impressive ensemble cast including Kajol, Kumud Mishra, Neena Gupta, Tamannaah Bhatia, Amruta Shubhash, Angad Bedi, Mrunal Thakur, Tillotama Shome and Vijay Varma, this collection of films promises to redefine the boundaries of storytelling.

The trailer of Lust Stories 2 starts with Neena Gupta comparing one's body to Mt. Fuji, where lust erupts just like a volcano. Since she plays a grandmother, her son and daughter-in-law can't help but save face. To make matters worse for them, she suggests her granddaughter sleep with her prospective husband as a ‘test drive.’ No wonder such a hard-hitting story had to come from an ace director like R. Balki, who could handle it with ease and comic.

Sharing his unique perspective on lust, R. Balki says, "Lust is natural and most important in a relationship. It’s critical for all to recognise it. I wanted to create a lust story that a family can watch together. Why should a story of lust always make for exciting solo viewing and be uncomfortable for family viewing when families are created by love and lust? Neena Gupta, Mrunal and Angad have brought to life this simple, hilarious tale in the most charming way possible. Having partners like Netflix, RSVP and Flying Unicorn trust me to create a film for this reputed anthology has been immensely gratifying. I hope it's a story that will resonate with people.”

Speaking of house helps, in a story helmed by none other than Konkona Sen Sharma, Tillotama Shome's character spies her house help (Amruta Subhash) sleeping with a delivery guy. She's seen telling a friend on phone, “Seema didi on my bed!” Later in the scene, the employer and the employee are seen arguing who's filthier.

Konkona who is making her directorial debut for a short film with this story, discussed her excitement about the project. “There is something exhilarating about a woman getting her rightly deserved freedom and taking control of her life and this is exactly what I wanted to showcase in my anthology for Lust Stories 2. I was quite thrilled and excited when I was approached to do this project. Lust for me, like many, is a forbidden topic and I wanted to break away from the norm which was only possible because of my wonderful co-writer Pooja Tolani. I couldn't have asked for a better cast than Amruta and Tillotama, who worked so in sync with each other!”

“This time lust stories are all about the different shades of Lust," said Sujoy Ghosh. In his story, Vijay Varma's character is seen sneaking into the home of his lover from 10 years ago, played by Tamannaah Bhatia. But she objects to sleeping with him because he's married.

Speaking about his association with Lust Stories 2, Sujoy Ghosh says: “I am so glad that RSVP, Flying Unicorn and Netflix brought this opportunity to me, and that our lust story will be watched by audiences in 190 countries. Tamannah and Vijay brought the film to life just as I had imagined it, and I am hoping audiences will enjoy seeing their chemistry on screen.”

In another story, Kajol's character suspects her husband Kumud Mishra is lusting for their house help. She gets her replaced, much to his chagrin. Looking refreshing in a simple, middle-class de-glam avatar, Kajol is likely to perform an intense scene with Kumud, a glimpse of which you can see in the trailer.

This refreshing take is handled by none other than the accomplished Amit Ravindernath Sharma. “When Netflix, Ronnie and Ashi approached me to be a part of their Emmy Nominated anthology Lust Stories, it was an immediate yes for me. It was truly an exceptional experience to work with actors like Kajol and Kumud Mishra to bring this complex and edgy vision of lust to the audiences. Lust has multiple shades and this film of mine depicts the lust for power and ambition,” Amit shared his thoughts.

To start streaming on Netflix from June 29, 'Lust Stories 2' has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Ashi Dua. You can watch the trailer here.
