Karan Johar directed his short film in the anthology that had Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal in the lead role. In the film, Kiara`s character Megha has an orgasm in front of the whole family and Kiara was appreciated for her acting skills and the way she pulled off that particular part. While speaking about the film and how it made Kiara stand out as an actor in the series, Karan Johar revealed that he had a hard time finding someone to play the part. He said that he first offered the part to Kriti Sanon. Karan said, “I had offered it to Kriti Sanon, the role…and she said that her mom didn`t allow her.”

Karan continued, “I thought everybody`s mom would stand in line, not allowing their daughters. It`s actually a very empowering story. It`s about a woman`s right to pleasure. So I met Kiara at Manish Malhotra`s house, and I just saw her, I knew her of course, I knew her as Alia Advani then…so I met her and I asked can you come tomorrow and meet me, it`s for a short film. She came and she heard it and then she was a little zoned out.

“She said, are you directing it? I said yes. Then she said, yeah! I`m doing it!” Kiara then admitted that she did the movie because Karan was directing it. She said, “I have to say that when I signed the film, it was only to work with Karan Johar.” `Lust Stories` was released on Netflix in 2018. The anthology film consists of four short films, each directed by Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar.

Nithya Menon who plays the role of Abha Sabharwal in the series says, “Firstly, I feel lucky to have been a part of the Breathe franchise and work with immensely talented people on set. I have been a part of the team for a few years now and the first instalment of Breathe: Into the Shadows was a special experience undoubtedly.

Actor Randeep Hooda, who is known for lending authenticity to his roles be it in `Sarbjit` or `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster`, is currently gearing up for his next streaming series titled `CAT`. The series, according to its creator and showrunner Balwinder Singh Janjua, has been entirely shot in real locations in Punjab. Randeep says shooting in real locations “immensely” helps actors to make their performance believable.

Elaborating on the same, the actor tells IANS: “Shooting in real locations enhances the performance because you spend the majority of time in the universe where your content is set. “Going to sets for the shoot, being there in the moment or coming back from the shoot, you are surrounded by a certain geography, the climate, the cultural setting of the people, the local language or the diction people use there — all these things help you to get into a space and focus your thoughts inline with the traits of your character.”

`Cat` is a crime thriller set against the backdrop of the Punjab hinterlands and tells the story of an innocent man, who is thrown into a deep, drug trafficking conspiracy between gang lords, cops and political powers. The actor further adds, “Like for `Cat` too, a lot of local actors have been cast in supporting roles. It`s so interesting to jam with those actors on the screen and to feed off their energy. It greatly helped me to get a better understanding of my character in the series.”

`Cat` lands on Netflix on December 9.

Despite the acclaim that he has received for his acting stints in shows like Pataal Lok and Bard of Blood, Jaideep Ahlawat, like any other cinephile, recalls being apprehensive about his first interaction with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Given that Kapoor is “such a big star”, he set foot on the sets of The Devotion of Suspects X adaptation with the belief that building a bond with her would require a fair share of effort. “She ended the sense of awkwardness within five minutes,” recalls the actor, stating that Kapoor would encourage him to read lines with her to break the ice, while working on Sujoy Ghosh’s directorial venture.

The yet-untitled Netflix film, which marks Kapoor’s streaming debut, is an adaptation of Japanese author Higashino Keigo’s bestselling 2005 novel, and follows Kapoor as a single mother, who, along with her daughter, commits a crime.

Kapoor’s dedication to her craft, he says, is evident in the questions that she asks her directors. “She is committed, and would come prepared with her lines. She would ask [Sujoy] why certain dialogues were being included in the script. She would voice her suggestions if she felt that she could emote certain scenes better in the absence of dialogues. She is an actor who constantly thinks about her character.”
