In a recent interview, Bhumi Pednekar discussed her intimate scenes in Lust Stories. In the Zoya Akhtar-directed short, the actor talked about how nervous she was before shooting a "full throttle" scene in a busy place.
Four separate stories by Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar are collected in the anthology titled Lust Stories. In it, Bhumi played a housekeeper who dealt with a complicated relationship with her boss, Neil Bhoopalam, including a sexual one.
During an interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Bhumi recalled shooting the intimate scene with Neil. The actor said that she was anxious when she did Lust Stories. Although it was a "full throttle" orgasm, she didn't have it at the time, at least not for her as the intimacy coordinator. Zoya explained to her that it's not about you being a girl, and you should feel comfortable when a male co-star has to, as she guided Neil and Bhumi through it with compassion.
However, the actor was uneasy because this was the most exposed she had been in the crowded room. Even though they have had protection, which means that she is dressed minimally, Neil and Bhumi still had to sit down and agree upon their boundaries. The director and the actors had a discourse that was crucial in and of itself since they were in a moment, and this was no different.
Along with Bhumi, other actors in Lust Stories were Kiara Advani, Radhika Apte, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala, and Neha Dhupia. In 2018, it was made available on Netflix, and Bhumi's performance earned rave reviews. After her well-received debut in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, many people thought it was her big break-out role.
Bhumi most recently appeared in Govinda Naam Mera, written and directed by Shashank Khaitan. She worked on the movie with Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal. The actor's next movies include Bheed, Bhakshak, and Afwaah. Together with Arjun Kapoor, she also has The Lady Killer.
