ZOYA AKHTAR : LOVE IS STILL A TABOO IN OUR CULTURE
Upcoming Movie Lust Stories is an anthology drama with four stories directed by four different directors Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Karan Johar. Featuring Radhika Apte, Manisha Koirala, Bhumi Pednekar, Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani, the trailer is a mix of fun, love and lust.
Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar, who is awaiting the release of Lust Stories, says lust has been depicted both poorly and beautifully in the films.
According to a leading daily, Zoya said, “One of the main reasons why our audience goes to cinema houses is escapism, fantasy, aspiration and to hope for something they don’t have. Love is still a taboo in our culture sadly. We don’t have that many love marriages happening, your parents decide who you spend your life with.”
“We are not allowed to date. In terms of lust, some people have depicted beautifully and some people are just crass. It has been in our films. People are now being more open.”
“One has not shown lust sensitively. Both love and lust and co exist. But many times it has had bad influence on society. And we are responsible bunch of filmmakers. We have used it in right way. Lust cannot always be gauged by negativity, it is a bona-fide emotion.”
The film is set to release on June 15 on Netflix.
