Mumbai: Actress Yami Gautam will be seen in “Pink” famed filmmaker Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s upcoming film “Lost”, an investigative drama that will highlight the issue of media integrity.
Talking about his new venture, Roy Chowdhury said: “Designed as an investigative drama, at its core the film explores themes like commitment, responsibility, holding hands and making our world beautiful and compassionate.”
