Netflix India on Wednesday unveiled the teaser of its upcoming anthology film Pitta Kathalu, which is the Telugu version of Lust Stories. Going by the teaser, the film will narrate the stories of four distinctly bold female characters.
The teaser gives us a quick glimpse into each segment, which seems to be touching upon some provocative themes as well as love and betrayal.
The cast comprises Amala Paul, Ashwin Kakumanu, Eesha Rebba, Jagapathi Babu, Lakshmi Manchu, Saanve Meghana, Sanjith Hegde and Shruti Haasan.
The four shorts have been directed by Nag Ashwin, Nandini Reddy, Sankalp Reddy and Tharun Bhascker.
Pitta Kathalu has been produced by RSVP Movies and Flying Unicorn Entertainment.

It is worth mentioning that Sandeep Reddy Vanga was supposed to direct one segment but he opted out following creative differences.
In an interview with the Deccan Chronicle newspaper, Sandeep had said: “Initially, they said that it was about an honour killing, but later they said it is about lust. I told them that I am not comfortable with lust.”
However, Sandeep went on to confirm that he would soon helm a web-series. “I am planning to do a web-series in the next 4-5 years, based on some real-life incidents. It’s about a group of friends and I know that it can’t be a film because the censor would not give us clearance for it.”
Released as a Netflix original, Lust Stories featured Kiara Advani, Radhika Apte and Manisha Koirala. The anthology film — featuring four short film segments that are centred on the theme of lust — was directed by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee, respectively.
