Huma Qureshi Set to Lead New Investigative Drama ‘Bayaan’

In an exciting development for Indian cinema, acclaimed actress Huma Qureshi has been confirmed to headline the upcoming investigative police procedural drama, Bayaan. This announcement was made on Friday by Shiladitya Bora, an award-winning producer renowned for his work in the Indian film industry. The production is a collaborative effort under the banners of Platoon One Films and Summit Studios.

Bayaan is not just another addition to the genre but promises to offer a fresh narrative set against the stunning, evocative landscapes of Rajasthan. The film will be directed by Bikas Mishra, a writer-director best known for his critically lauded feature film Chauranga. The script of Bayaan was developed at Film Independent, Los Angeles, known for fostering unique and compelling stories in the global film community.

At the core of Bayaan’s plot is Roohi, a female detective who embarks on her first major assignment in a small Rajasthani town. Roohi’s journey is intricately tied to her desire to uphold her father’s legendary legacy in law enforcement. Facing adversaries deeply entrenched in the system, Roohi’s mission seems doomed from the start. Throughout the narrative, viewers are expected to witness her struggle not only against the corrupt forces but also within herself, striving to prove her mettle.

Apart from Huma Qureshi, the ensemble cast includes seasoned actors Chandrachur Singh and Sachin Khedekar, both of whom bring a wealth of experience and gravitas to the project. The film is slated to commence production this month and will be shot entirely in Rajasthan, capturing the state’s rich culture and picturesque settings.

Bayaan benefits from robust international support, notably from the International Film Festival Rotterdam’s Hubert Bals Fund. Additionally, it was developed at LA Residency through the Global Media Makers (GMM) program of Film Independent, Los Angeles. Such significant international backing highlights the film’s potential for global resonance and artistic excellence.

During the LA Residency, Bikas Mishra received mentorship from notable industry figures including Craig Mazin, the creator of the highly acclaimed series HBO’s Chernobyl and The Last of Us. Furthermore, valuable script advice was provided by writer Jeff Stockwell and story editor Ruth Atkinson.
