Director Dibakar Banerjee, who is gearing up for the release of
Bakshy!, the big screen adaptation of a fictional book
character, says he's ready to make it a franchise if it rings a
bell with the audiences.
"We would love to (make it a franchise), but we are waiting for
the first film to do well. This is because fortunately or
unfortunately, a film like this has not been made," Dibakar said at
the second trailer launch of Detective Byomkesh
"If audiences' hunger and thirst for such films increases and
our first Byomkesh story catches on, then our franchise is ready
and we would love this franchise to go forward," he added.
He further admits films based on spying were made in 1950s, but
"with Detective Byomkesh Bakshi!, the attempt was to bring
newness to this genre".
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is based on the fictional
detective Byomkesh Bakshi created by the Bengali writer Saradindu
