Asserting that his forthcoming film `Detective Byomkesh Bakshi` is targeted at the youth, critically acclaimed filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee said he wants youngsters to accept the detective as a "big hero".
Dibakar Banerjee is looking forward to realise his childhood dream by recreating the war-torn Kolkata of 1940s on the big screen with his ambitious adaptation of Sharadindu Banerjee`s famous fictional character in `Detective Byomkesh Bakshi`.
India’s rising star director Anurag Kashyap has complained that filmmakers in in the country still do not enjoy the kind of freedom of space and expression that would allow them to make meaningful films.
Though star power and box office success of a movie are interdependent, Dibakar Banerjee won`t make a typical film by just banking on big names and then manufacturing collection figures to draw the audience.
The movie, a compilation of four short films by Karan Johan, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee, is said to be an ode to the Indian Film Industry on its completion of 100 years and the music is in line with the theme.
‘Bombay Talkies’, which is already in the headlines being a productive effort of four brilliant filmmakers Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar and Dibakar Banerjee, has reportedly signed in Aamir Khan for one of its segment.
