Dream debut

Gayatri became a household name after debuting opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Ashutosh Gowarikar's 2004 Swadesh. The movie, though didn't gather huge box officer collections, was acclaimed overwhelmingly by critics. The debutant was noted for her natural acting skills also, and many thought she would be flooded with offers from the best directors of the industry.

Missing: Why did Gayatri Joshi quit Bollywood after a dream debut?

Bollywood is not for everyone. Some realize it sooner and tread different paths to make different achievements in life, while others keep trying till the industry throws them off.

In this giant rigmarole of realizations and refusals, we have seen many of our loved celebs fading out into oblivion, leaving us wondering, “where are they, how are they...”

We are, hence, starting this “Missing Reports” series where we dig deep into the untold stories of such missing stars. Today we are covering Gayatri Joshi, the promising debutant from Swadesh.
