Filmmaker Nandini Reddy, who has directed one short film segment in the Telugu version of Lust Stories, has clarified that none of the stories from the original have been used in the remake. She has already wrapped up the shoot of web series List Stories for Netflix. Nandini Reddy, who recently directed Samantha Akkineni starrer Oh Baby, is flooding with multiple offers from the top production houses. According to the latest buzz in the film industry once again Nandini Reddy is planning to team up with Samantha Akkineni for a project whereas few are saying that the lady director has already signed a film for Swapna Dutt and Priyanka Dutt in which Vaishnav Tej, the younger brother of Sai Dharam Tej will play the lead role.
It is known news that Vaishnav Tej is currently busy in his ongoing project Uppena, which is being bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers. The sources say that after wrapping up the shoot of Uppena, Vaishnav Tej will team up with Nandini Reddy.
On the other hand, it is also being heard that Mahesh Koneru is planning to cash in the success of “Oh Baby” and trying to bring Nandini Reddy on the board to helm a movie for Samantha Akkineni. Now we have to wait and see, with whom Nandini Reddy will work- Samantha Akkineni or Vaishnav Tej.
In Uppena, Vaishnav Tej will be seen sharing the screen space with Young actress Krithi Shetty.
