Directed by: Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap come together for Lust Stories.
Remember the hilarious scene in Netflix’s Lust Stories in which Kiara Advani reaches climax as the title track of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham plays in the background? The actress revealed during a recent appearance on a chat show that she watched it with her grandmother.
“My grandmother had come to stay with me, and the film had just released on Netflix. Of course, I had seen it and my parents had seen it. Everyone loved it and all of that,” she said, adding that her parents were completely unfazed by the orgasm scene. “They knew everything when I had said yes to the film. So, they were informed. I prepared them,” she said.
Kiara said that her grandmother is Anglo-Indian, so she did not understand some references. “She’s part British, so there were certain jokes that she didn’t get. She was reading it with the subtitles. Everyone else was laughing, there were a lot of reactions of the people watching. When my grandmother was watching it, she was watching it with a straight face, like deadpan,” she said.
Since Kiara’s grandmother did not react while watching Lust Stories, the actress could not make out if she was liking it or not. Kiara then messaged her mother, who asked her to explain the scene to her.
“I was like, ‘Grandma, you do understand what happened?’ Also, she didn’t get the context to the Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… I asked, ‘You get the context, right? Like, she has had this moment and an orgasm in front of the entire family.’ She’s like, ‘Well, in front of the whole world now.’ And I was shocked. Oh God!” she said.
