Dibakar Bannerjee's short movie ‘Star’ in the episodic movie ‘Bombay Talkies’ was Sadashiv Amrapurkar's last appearance in Hindi cinema. The director says he is glad that he got to work with the late actor.
Film maker Dibaker Banerjee, who is currently editing his film ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshi’, says his film has got nothing to do with famed fictional detective Sherlock Holmes as his film deals with "an original Indian character".
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.
