Second trailer of Dibakar Bannerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! is out. The masked man in the trailer has caught a lot of attention. There were reports that Aamir was playing the role of the villain. The makers of the film, which is releasing on April 3, are yet to reveal the villain's face.
"We can't show the villain's face in the trailer because it's a thriller film," Banerjee added.
However the director denies that Aamir Khan is not playing the baddie in Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! Dibakar Banerjee said the superstar had rejected an offer for the role.
Banerjee launched the detective sleuth's second trailer. Dibakar said that Aamir did not take up the role as he was already playing a negative character in Dhoom 3.
"I was looking for a villain who can give competition to Byomkesh and can also attract the audience. So, we went to Aamir and gave the narration to him but he passed the film and said maybe not this one. Later on I came to know that he is doing Dhoom 3 in a villainous role," Dibakar told.
The 'Shanghai' director, who bought the rights of all 33 Byomkesh Bakshi stories penned by eminent Bengali writer Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, said he will think about giving a big screen adaptation to the rest of the stories after the release of the film.
Produced by Yash Raj Films and Banerjee himself, 'Kai Po Che' star Sushant Singh Rajput is playing the titular character in the movie that also stars Meiyang Chang, Swastika Mukherjee and Anand Tiwari.
