Director Dibakar Banerjee surprised actor Sushant Singh Rajput with the longest kiss of his career for the upcoming film 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy'. A kissing scene was required between Sushant and actress Swastika Mukherjee. While Swastika was briefed about giving a long kiss to Sushant, he was unaware of this and expected it to be a mere peck. According to the scene, Sushant was required to look shocked and so the director took this step and got the perfect results.
Dibakar Banerjee said, "â€‹The scene was more about the kiss. It was about deception, intrigue and murder and I needed that something extra - that element of surprise that throws everyone off. But we had over-rehearsed it. The takes ended up being just like the rehearsals - no surprise! Six takes, eight takes, still the same. I was worried. Then it struck me. I took Swastika aside and told her, 'Kiss him before he can say anything - and we won't tell him. Throw him off guard'."
'Detective Byomkesh Bakshy' is a Bollywood film about India's best known detective series. Co-produced by Yash Raj Films and Dibakar Banerjee Productions, this film is scheduled for release on the 13th of February next year.
