Filmmaker Nandini Reddy, who has finished directing one segment of Telugu version of Lust Stories (2018), has clarified that none of the stories from the original have been used in the remake.

Lust Stories was released as a Netflix original, featuring Kiara Advani, Radhika Apte, and Manisha Koirala. The anthology film - featuring four short film segments and centered on the theme of lust - was directed by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee, respectively.

Nandini Reddy, who recently directed Samantha Akkineni-starrer Oh Baby (2018), has been roped in to direct the segment featuring Amala Paul. Other segments will be directed by Sankalp Reddy and Tharun Bhascker.

In a tweet, Nandini has clarified that the Telugu version doesn’t feature the same stories from the original Lust Stories.

“For the nth time. Lust stories in Telugu does NOT feature any of the stories already seen in Hindi,” Nandini tweeted.

Meanwhile, Amala recently revealed she even completed shooting for her portion. Her segment also stars Jagapathi Babu and Ashwin Kakumanu.

Amala was all praise for Nandini, and she explained how Nandini made working on this project very easy.

"Wrapped up a Telugu anthology for Netflix India. Now on to unwrapping the story from my head. Indeed an intense ride in ten days but the boss lady Nandini made it easy-peasy. Really looking to this one and yes watch out for Nandini Reddy version 2.0,” Amala tweeted.
