Her second innings in Bollywood kick started with unconventionality. And it seems that Manisha Koirala has found love in experimentation. So it is not surprising when we see the actress breaking barriers and doing some hatke roles. One amongst them is the one where she will feature in a Zoya Akhtar directorial. The popular filmmaker, who returns with the concept of anthology, also has Manisha starring as the leading lady in her short as a part of Lust Stories.
It has only been a few days since we told you that the Ronnie Screwvala and Ashi Dua anthology Lust Stories will have a digital release. The film was the result of the love and acceptance the 2013 anthology Bombay Talkies received. The same set of four filmmakers, namely, Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap return with another set of plots in Lust Stories.
But unlike the theatrical release of the last, the directors decided that they would aim for a wider global reach with the digital platform Netflix. All the shorts revolve around the dark space of lust and deceit and here’s a glimpse from one of them. It features Manisha Koirala chilling peacefully at the lawn of a bungalow accompanied by her co-star Jaideep Ahlwat.
The Zoya Akhtar story is supposedly said to revolve around three people, which includes a couple and a husband’s friend. As it unveils, a series of skeletons tumble out of the closet filled with deceit, lies and betrayal.
On the other hand, besides this one, we have already sneak-peeks into other stories, A look of Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal from the Karan Johar directorial was released which featured them as a newly married couple. The said story also has Neha Dhupia. Anurag Kashyap’s story revolves around Radhika Apte whereas Dibakar’s story has Bhumi Pednekar among others.
Speaking of Manisha Koirala, the 90s diva also has other interesting projects in hand which includes the Sanjay Dutt biopic. The Rajkumar Hirani directorial has Manisha in the role of Sanjay’s mother Nargis Dutt whereas Paresh Rawal essays the role of her husband and veteran actor Sunil Dutt.
