Dibakar Banerjee opens up on making Detective Byomkesh Bakshy 2 without Sushant Singh Rajput
Dibakar Banerjee shared his thoughts on making Detective Byomkesh Bakshy 2 in which Sushant Singh Rajput was starred in its first part.
Ace director Dibakar Banerjee has shared his thoughts on the possibility of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy sequel in which the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was in the lead role. He also revealed that Sushant, who died on 14June,2020, wanted to do the sequel of film.
The movie was basically made on the famous character, detective Byomkesh Bakshi, by author Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay. However, the film did not perform well at the box office still the director had desire to make its sequel.
Talking to the BollywoodLife, Dibakar said, “Making a sequel to Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is something that I have desired. I feel the story can be taken forward into a franchise. Of course, we’d have to cast another actor, but it is something I believe Sushant would have wanted.”
“With the actor’s first death anniversary approaching, the filmmaker said that he still finds it difficult to talk about Sushant. “It’s still very difficult to talk about Sushant. Maybe four or five years later I’ll be able to say what I feel or open up about my memories of him, but it’s still very difficult now, it’s just too soon. I still can’t believe he’s not with us anymore. Plus, what all happened after his death is something else altogether, best not to speak about that. There are obviously a lot of memories, but I can’t talk about them now, maybe after a few years,” he further added.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Dibakar’s latest film, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, was recently released on Amazon Prime Video.
