Director Dibakar Banerjee who is coming up with his film Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! Says that he had initially approached actor Aamir Khan to play the villain in this film, but he rejected the offer.
On Monday at the second trailer launch of the film Dibakar revealed and said, “I was trying to make this film (Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!) About two years ago and at that time I was looking for a villain who can give competition to Byomkesh and can also attract the audience.”
He further added, “So, we went to Aamir and gave the narration to him but he passed the film and said ‘may be not this one’. Later on I came to know that he is doing Dhoom 3 in a villainous role”.
He also said, “I think if YRF (Yash Raj Films) gained something, then it lost something as well”.
Dibakar has kept the villain of his film hidden in the second trailer. It only shows the back of the villain.
The film is based on Saradindu Bandyopadhyay’s well-known and successful fictional detective Byomkesh Bakshy. It is an adventure thriller mired in deep political intrigue. And it is a contemporary interpretation of Calcutta (now Kolkata) during the 1940s.
The film will release on April 3.
