Few days ago, trailer of Lust Stories have been launched and director Karan Johar has been present at the location. It is a Netflix Originals that will start to air from 15th June. Surprisingly, it is also release date of Salman Khan Starrer Race 3. Third installment of Race franchise is ready to release at the moment.
Lust Stories is a collection of four stories directed by prominent directors like Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kasyap and Dibakar Banerjee.
On the launch of Lust Stories, Karan Johar has been asked whether Lust Stories has the capability to overshadow Salman Khan’s Race 3. In reply, Karan Johar has said they cannot compete with Salman Khan. Karan has said clearly, “Salman Khan is on a different platform. He is the big master of mainstream cinema. Race (3) is going to be a humongous film. It’s a franchise film. It’s a totally different film with a totally different syntax. We’re not competing or fighting.”
Later on, Karan has added “Hamari woh aukat hi nahi hai to fight with Salman Khan or Race. We are actually four very happy filmmakers who’ve made a tiny little film, which we’re very gratified to Netflix for, who’ve accepted our film with open arms. We’re not competing with anyone. We don’t have the right to compete with the magnitude of Salman Khan. I mean Race is like… I probably will be going to watch Race on (June) 15 and not Lust Stories.”
