Aravind Kaushik's Gone Case to be a Kannada-Hindi bilingual 

Gone Case will be Huliraya director Aravind Kaushik’s next project. This thriller will be the filmmaker’s sixth outing. Interestingly, this bilingual will be made in Kannada and Hindi. The story revolves around the life of a serial killer who takes on the police. The director is ready with the script and has even shot a teaser. However, he is awaiting the lockdown to be lifted to begin shooting.

Gone Case has debutant Snehith Gowda playing the lead. “Snehith is a very active theatre artist and has done a lot of Punjabi plays. He is taking the plunge onto the silver screen for which he has been preparing over the last one year,” says the director. 

The film will also feature Chakravarthy Chandrachud in a strong role. “Chandrachud is my friend, and the idea to cast him in a film has been on my mind for a long time. Knowing him, I wanted him to act in a role that was worth it. I didn’t want it to be just another character. While he was in the Bigg Boss Season 8 show, the script, especially his role, took a different shape. When I saw him on the show, it struck me that his off-screen persona kind of fits the character that I have sketched,” says Aravind, adding that Gone Case will revolve around these two characters, “The film does not have a heroine but will feature strong women characters. Talks are on with a couple of actors, but things are yet to be finalised before we make an official announcement,” says the director, who plans to resume shooting once the second wave settles.

About taking Gone Case to Hindi, Aravind explains that the script is experimental which is why he wants to reach out to the Hindi arena as well, and has decided to shoot in both languages. "This will also be my entry point into B-Town," he says. This will be one of those films that won’t have songs, and the director wants to decide on the music composer once the shooting is complete. Meanwhile, Aravind has completed shooting for Steel Paathre Saaman, and is awaiting the film to be presented to the Censor Board.
