"I think I am a Bengali now", says Sushant Singh Rajput after Detective Byomkesh Bakshy
Sushant Singh Rajput recently turned 29 and the makers of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy decided to release the trailer of the film on his birth day. Sushant who was delighted with the decision, admitted that he has worked very hard to get his act right in the movie.
During the trailer launch of the movie, Sushant says, "I knew that I had the resources and researches. The bottom line was the authority to play the character Byomkesh. I was aware of what not to do on-screen. Filmmaking is all about what we like to do on-screen. We have attempted that in the film. I have worked very hard to perform the character."
The film has been extensively shot in Kolkata and Mumbai and Sushant is happy to have visited the City of Joy. Being a big foodie, Sushant reveals, "I am a big foodie so I love all the good food specially mishti dahi. Before I started shooting for the film, I went to Kolkata and learnt few things about the food. After knowing all the stuff from Kolkata I think I am a Bengali now."
The film also stars Bengali actress Swastika Mukherjee playing the lead role, and is supposed to have the ‘longest kissing scene’ ever shown in a film. Talking about it, Sushant said, "I have not sat with a watch while doing the scene, so I can't tell you if it was the longest kissing scene. But I can tell you one thing that I didn't know about the kissing scene which I was supposed to shoot. It was a surprise for me."
Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee said, "I am thinking of cutting the kissing scene from the film because just to watch that particular scene people will miss the scene and the dialogues."
