What Dibaker Banerjee Said About Byomkesh Bakshi?
Film maker Dibaker Banerjee is currently editing his upcoming film ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshi’. He says that his film deals with “an original Indian character” and has got nothing to do with famed fictional detective Sherlock Holmes .
Dibaker said that, “Somebody told me that Byomkesh Bakshi is like the Sherlock Holmes stories… I think it’s ridiculous. In that case why will I buy the rights of Byomkesh Bakshi, why would I buy the rights of 31 stories from Byomkesh Bakshi series? There is no logic.”
He further added, “Byomkesh is an original Indian character and with a whole new connect to the Indian audience which a Sherlock Holmes cannot have because he is not from India.”
The film is based on the popular Bengali detective created by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay.
The detective spy thriller features Sushant Singh Rajput in lead.
