About Lust Stories 2
Lust Stories was released on June 15, 2018 and received critical praise for the film’s portrayal of women and their sexuality. All the four segments of the film had different stories but one thing which was common in all of them was the exploration of female sexuality, a subject that has been rarely dealt with in Indian films.
However, the makers of Lust Stories 2 are completely tight-lipped about its segments, in our prediction, it will explore a bit more about women and their sexual desires presenting different stories.
