The Directors of Bombay Talkies Are Coming Together for Yet Another Anthology Film

Like it or not, Netflix and other web-based platforms like Amazon Prime are and will take over the traditional media sooner than later. After witnessing a decent success with their first original film 'Love Per Square Foot', Netflix is all in for producing more originals in the form of series and movies.

Now, 'Bombay Talkies', filmmakers Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap are coming back with an anthology film as all the four directors have finished shooting their respective films and are waiting for their release.

Initially, it was reported that the film is a sequel to Bombay Talkies but it’s not. 'Bombay Talkies' was a tribute to Indian cinema as it completed 100 years in 2013 but this series will be completely different which will deal with love, lust, and relationships. The movie will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala under his banner RSVP, with producer Ashi Dua and it will be released on Netflix by June.

“Lust Stories, four short films that deal with real-life relationships in modern India and brought together as one film brilliantly under a common theme by Anurag, Dibakar, Karan, and Zoya is a perfect premiere for global audiences on Netflix,” Screwvala has said in a statement.

It is being rumored that Karan’s film will star Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani, and Neha Dhupia, while Anurag’s film features Radhika Apte and Aakash Thosar of 'Sairat' fame. Manisha Koirala and Sanjay Kapoor have shot for Dibakar’s film. And Zoya’s film features Bhumi Pednekar, Neil Bhoopalam and Rasika Duggal.
