Dibakar Banerjee's much awaited next film has been in the news for many reasons. There has been a lot of speculations going around with one particular news being regarding the antagonist of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!
It is revealed that Dibakar had first approached Aamir Khan to play the villain in his film. At the same time, Aamir had been part of the script narration for Dhoom 3 from Aditya Chopra as well, Aamir loved both the roles and it was a big step for him to portray a negative character for the first time. With both films being produced by Aditya Chopra, he decided to go for Dhoom 3.
When asked about it, Dibakar said "Byomkesh Bakshy was the story I wanted to make after Khosla. The studio I was in talks with loved the project and we thought the best guy then to do the baddie was Aamir. We went and narrated to him. I didn't know that Dhoom 3 was on the slate next with Aamir as the villain. Aamir passed on my script. Two years later we met after the Byomkesh teaser had released - and he had just loved it. I guess Yrf's gain was Yrf's loss!"
Apparently, the villain of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! has a very strong role in the film. Dibakar is not revealing the villain's identity anytime soon and plans to keep it under wraps.
