Dibakar Banerjee: 'It's my most expensive film'

By HT

Mumbai, July 25 -- Dibakar Banerjee, who is busy working on his film, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! (DBB), talks about his most ambitious project.

Why a film on Byomkesh?

As a kid, I used to feel a strange thrill when I read Byomkesh Bakshi stories. I wanted to make it since I was 14 and now, after having made other films, I wanted that thrill back. I want to hook the audiences with a rich, layered detective story.

Why didn't you make it earlier?

After Khosla Ka Ghosla (2006), I wanted to make DBB but the producers didn't trust me with such a big project. Now, after five movies, I'm ready for this experience, which will also be my most expensive film. It's a film set in 1942 and will need VFX (visual effects) too
