Kolkata: Byomkesh transforms, but Ajit stays the same! Yes, that’s what the director of Byomkesh Bakshi’ has stated.
With Abir Chatterjee trading Byomkesh Bakshi for the big banner ‘Feluda’, Dutta was a bit in bother. Not only has the director pulled himself out of the temporary crisis, but also has he founded a replacement. Jisshu Sengupta will essay the character of Byomkesh. Byomkesh Bakshi’s best friend on screen Ajit and wife Satyabati will stick to their roles. Anjan has decided to retain his earlier cast of Saswata Chatterjee and Ushashie Chakraborty in their said roles. Dutta believes, ‘Saswata as Ajit has its own audience. He is liked by people from Day one. And letting his go will be a big mistake.’
