MUMBAI—National award-winning filmmaker Sanjoy Nag (“Memories in March” fame) has wrapped up the shoot of his next film, “Yours Truly.” The film, which has been shot on location in Kolkata, is based on a short story, “The One That Was Announced,” by award-winning writer and playwright Annie Zaidi from the collection “Love Story #1-14” published by Harper Collins. The film is produced by Platoon One Films & MDC Filmworks,
“Yours Truly” will see Soni Razdan, who has been directed by her husband Mahesh Bhatt in cult Hindi films like “Saaransh,” appear on screen with him for the first time in their careers. Razdan, who is also the mother of Alia Bhatt, plays protagonist Mithi Kumar in a superb ensemble cast along with Aahana Kumra, Pankaj Tripathi, and Bhatt in a special appearance.
The film is a poetic, romantic drama. Said Bhatt, “It's a beautiful story of a woman and her journey of finding love in the most unexpected places. It was an incredible experience to shoot in the city of joy with such a talented cast and crew. We’re now eagerly looking forward to finish the film and present it to the world!”
Produced by Shiladitya Bora, Nikhil Chaudhary, and Milapsinh Jadeja, the film is slated for a summer 2018 release.
