The first look of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in and as Detective Byomkesh Bakshi has been released and – to his credit – we didn’t recognize him at all.
Dressed as a Begali man from the 1940s, Sushant is seen wearing a white button down kurta, a dhoti and a green jacket. He also sports a moustache which makes him look uncannily like a younger Adolf Hitler.
Interestingly, Sushant has been learning Bengali and the production house actually hired a tutor to to aid his efforts.
Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the film is based on a novel by Sharadindu Bandopadhyay about a detective called Byomkesh Bakshi.
