After Mumbai, Hyderabad and Himachal, many Hindi films are also being shot in Kolkata. Kajal Aggarwal, Meghna Malik, Tinu Anand etc. are shooting for the film ‘Uma’ in Kolkata from July 5. Now today i.e. from Sunday, Yami Gautam will start the first schedule of ‘Lost’ there. The film also stars Pankaj Kapur and Rahul Khanna in lead roles. It is being directed by Pink fame Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.
Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury as well as Yami herself decided not to give this journalist the getup of a typical suit-booted corporate anchor. Instead, preference has been given to the getup of an investigative journalist working at Ground Zero. Fellow real-life investigative journalists have more focus on how they break the news. His journalism has not been made much filmic. Yami’s character will be seen in a simple way like the clothes in which investigative journalists of big cities are in and maintain the lifestyle.
The story also travels from Kolkata to Purulia. The story is set in today’s date itself. The film also stars Pankaj Kapoor. He was last seen with Abhay Deol. After a long time, he will now be seen as a professor with Yami Gautam. Pankaj Kapur and Yami Gautam have a Krishna Arjun-like relationship. Wherever Yami finds herself at a crossroads in life, Pankaj Kapur’s character guides her. Yami makes Gautam’s character aware of his strengths and weaknesses. Pankaj Kapoor saw a social relevancy in his character, only then he said yes to this film.
