Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh said "Rituda had ordered me one day that, 'you have to do the lead role in my Satyanweshi.' it was not possible for me to say no to Rituparno Ghosh. It was an altogether good experience. Except Byomkesh and his assistant Ajit, all other characters were created by Rituda,"
Filmmaker Sujoy said that he accepted the challenge to play Byomkesh Bakshi only at the behest of its late director Rituparno Ghosh.
Filmmaker Sujoy added Rituda had ordered me one day that, 'You have to do the lead role in my Satyanweshi.' It was not possible for me to say no to Rituparno Ghosh. It was an altogether good experience.
The director said throughout a discussion on Byomkesh Through The Ages at the 40th International Kolkata Book Fair on February 7, that he personally liked Byomkesh Bakshi but was not sure if it would be fit enough for today's pan-Indian film goers.
Sujoy said I like Byomkesh novels at a personal level but I am not much sure from the director's point of view. I am not sure whether the film audiences will like it or not.
Sujoy told PTI yes Kahaani 2 is happening. It is in the pre-production stage. Vidya Balan will star in the film. Major parts of the film will be shot in Kolkata.
Filmmaker Sujoy has produced Vidya's upcoming film T3EN, which has been directed by Ribhu Dasgupta. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Sujoy Ghosh has confirmed that he is reuniting with Vidya Balan for the sequel to his 2012 film Kahaani and is currently busy with its pre-production.
The film will go on floors soon and will be majorly shot in Kolkata said filmmaker Sujoy
