Pink filmmaker Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s next is an investigative drama Lost that will feature Yami Gautam in the lead role. The film also stars Rahul Khanna, Pankaj Kapur, Neil Bhoopalam, Pia Bajpiee and Tushar Pandey. Lost is written by Shyamal Sengupta and Ritesh Shah and produced by Zee Studios and Namah Pictures.
An elated Yami broke the news to the world on her Twitter handle this Tuesday.
Roy Chowdhury’s critically acclaimed Pink, which made everyone sit up and take notice of Taapsee Pannu, laid bare the hypocrisies and complexities of a largely gendered society. It is no surprise therefore that his latest directorial will champion the inherent, infinite strength of a woman.
In a world where holding on to an unwavering value system and the core values of love, care, commitment, responsibility is getting lost by the day, the film will underscore the search for these lost vitalities of ‘empathy and integrity' and call attention to ‘media integrity.’ Drawn from real-life incidents, Lost is a gritty, emotional thriller, relevant to the times we live in.
In an interview for The Telegraph, Roy Chowdhury added that Yami will play a fiery investigative journalist in Lost who will uncover the truth of the underbelly of Kolkata. “How far an honest woman can go to uncover the truth,” he said. Shariq Patel of Zee Studios lauded the film for its ‘tight script’, adding that it will be only elevated further by Roy Chowdhury’s direction and Yami’s performance.
Shareen Mantri Kedia of Namah Pictures describes Lost as an 'engaging, riveting and relatable' film. Expect evocative tunes from composer Shantanu Moitra, ably supported by the lyricist Swanand Kirkire. The shooting for Lost will begin in the third week of July in the vicinity of Kolkata and Purulia. Team Lost is looking at an early 2022 release.
