Actor Sushant Singh Rajput has done a lip lock with his co-star Swastika Mukherjee for his forthcoming film ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!’. He says that the director Dibakar Banerjee played a game with him for the scene. He said, “Dibakar (Banerjee) played a good game with me which eventually turned bad for me. He instructed me about a scene and I got ready for it, but I didn’t know that Angoori Devi (the character) was going to kiss me in that scene.” Sushant earlier kissed actress Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor in his film ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’.
He says that he tells his girlfriend Ankita Lokhande about such things so that she can get herself mentally prepared. But in Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, the director kept the scene a secret. The actor says, “I was also not prepared for it. But the interesting thing is that even Byomkesh Bakshy (the character) in the film didn’t know about it. So, the first take happened and I reacted the way I was supposed to react as the character, and Dibakar got his take. He didn’t tell me and pretended as if he also didn’t know about it.”
He said that he had to give six shot for the scene, “He asked for a few more takes. I did six more takes and then called Ankita to tell her that she does not need to worry as nothing of that sort has happened.”
Sushant said that he was the kiss when the second trailer was released, “I looked at Dibakar and was like ‘What is this?’ So this is how he played such a game with me.”
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! Is based on Saradindu Bandyopadhyay’s well-known and successful fictional detective Byomkesh Bakshy. It portrays Calcutta during the 1940s.The film is an adventure thriller and is scheduled for release on April 3.
