There is a general conception that sequels are made only for successful films. To some extent the theory is right. But, it is perhaps the first time in the history of Bollywood that an unsuccessful film will get a sequel. Dibakar Banerjee is poised to make a sequel to Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
News is that he has the backing of YRF head honcho, Aditya Chopra, who is confident about the sequel’s success. Dibakar says, “Aditya Chopra is keen that we carry Byomkesh’s story forward. Detective Byomkesh was always planned as a series of films based on the stories of Sharadindu Bandopadhyay.”
Sushant Singh Rajput, it is learnt, is happy to play the part again.
