“The kind of love I’ve received from the Byomkesh Bakshi franchise is unbelievable. I feel really privileged and honoured to see people associating me with the iconic character. I have done seven Byomkesh films and I’ve literally grown up with the sleuth character. I have also moulded that character. With every film, I have tried to add new layers so that my audience gets to see Byomkesh as charismatic and new with every film. We Bengalis have a knack for films and characters that are intellectually stimulating. That is both a boon and a bane,” explained Abir.
While ‘Durgeshgorer Guptodhon’ has already been declared superhit, Abir’s next is Mainak Bhaumik’s action thriller ‘Bornoporichoy’ which also stars Jisshu Sengupta.
