Filmmaker BV Nandini Reddy, best known for films such as Ala Modalaindi (2011) and Oh! Baby (2019), has clarified that her next Telugu project is not a remake. She also clarified that she’s not joining hands with actress Samantha Akkineni, who featured in Oh! Baby, anytime soon. 

Having already made two remakes in her career, Jabardast (2013), a remake of Band Baaja Baaraat (2010), and Oh! Baby, a remake of the Korean film Miss Granny (2014), recent reports suggested that her next film was also a remake. But Nandini took to Twitter on Wednesday to put the rumours to rest. 

“My next is not a remake. It’s an original script produced by Swapna Cinema. Whenever Samantha and I do our next we will announce it with a lot of joy and pride. Now, time for the next rumour. My rating for this rumour is 1/5. Come on guys. You can do better,” she tweeted.

Recently, Nandini completed shooting for a segment in Netflix’s Telugu version of Lust Stories. She recently clarified that none of the stories from the original have been used in the remake.

Released as a Netflix original, Lust Stories (2018) featured Kiara Advani, Radhika Apte, and Manisha Koirala. The anthology film, featuring four short film segments centered on the theme of lust, was directed by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee, respectively.

Nandini directed the segment featuring Amala Paul. Other segments have been directed by Sankalp Reddy and Tharun Bhascker.

Amala recently revealed she has completed shooting for her portion. Her segment also stars Jagapathi Babu and Ashwin Kakumanu. The actress 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,” she tweeted.
