"Once I have been accepted by the Bengali audience in one film I know I have broken the jinx," says Jisshu Sengupta
Abir Chatterjee played the titular role in Anjan Dutt's previous films on Bengal's favourite sleuth. "I told Jisshu that I did not want another Abir Chatterjee as Byomkesh. Instead of the intellectual appearance and Bengaliness, I wanted a sharper Byomkesh who is more desperate and a bit restless," said Anjan Dutt
Jisshu made his Bollywood debut with a guest appearance in Anurag Basu's Barfi!
