Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury was in Kolkata to promote his film Lost. The film which features Yami Gautam, Pankaj Kapur, and others will be dropped on Zee5 on February 17. By his admission, Lost is a story of ‘integrity’. The cast and crew shot in Kolkata in 2021. The film was initially scheduled to be released in theatres. However, it finally had a digital release. 

Talking about his experience of working with Yami, Aniruddha said, it was ‘superb’. “While working on something, you often meet the right person and that clicks. She is the best Vidhi in the world. I told her also,” the director said. 

Aniruddha was also very happy with the shooting that took place in Kolkata. He said, “It is my city and I am connected to it. It gives you back everything you want. You should ask Yami. We got help from everybody. Random people on street helped us in managing the crowd.” His next film which features Pankaj Tripathi and Jaya Ahsan was also shot in the City of Joy.  


Walking about Lost, Aniruddha said it is a story of commitment and integrity. “We were brainstorming many stories. Then we role-modeled somebody, started adding ingredients, and gathered anecdotes. Shyamal (Sengupta) and I wrote the story. Then he wrote the screenplay and that was fantastic. Ritesh (Shah) joined in and it evolved. It followers a classical structure of writing. We thought of an idea that progressed into a bigger structure organically. It is a very honest and true effort. It has shades of realism,” he explained.
