After the success of Lust Stories on Netflix, filmmakers Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Anurag Kashyap are set to reunite to tell spine-chilling tales through the streaming giant’s Ghost Stories. The anthology will be produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP and Ashi Dua.
“With Netflix we have a partner who complements the strain in RSVP’s DNA — to lean into risk when it comes to bold content narratives and creative freedom. Just as Lust Stories resonated around the world, we are aiming for ‘Ghost Stories’ and many more stories and sequels from India to connect with audiences in Asia and around the world,” Screwvala said.
Ghost Stories is one of the 10 new Netflix Indian original films that the streamer announced. Besides horror, the projects are set across a range of subjects and genres including drama, sci-fi, thriller, comedy and romance.
Others include Class of ’83, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and directed by Atul Sabharwal, Mrs Serial Killer, directed by Shirish Kunder and backed by Farah Khan, Guilty produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ruchi Narain, Yeh Ballet directed by Sooni Taraporevala and produced by Roy Kapur Films, House Arrest directed by Shashanka Ghosh, Kaali Khuhi directed by Terrie Samundra and produced by Manomay Motion Pictures,
Maska directed by Neeraj Udhwani and produced by Seher Aly Latif and Shivani Saran’s Mutant Films, Dibakar is attached with another project, titled Freedom, and Serious Men which is based on Manu Joseph’s book directed for the screen by Sudhir Mishra.
