This movie will be set in war-torn Kolkata (then Calcutta) of 1942. It follows one of the first cases solved by a twenty-something Byomkesh, who is fresh out of college, and is “an adventurous, young, and thrill-loving youth who wants to be a detective.”
“Sushant has always had a chiselled frame. But for this role, he will need to look lanky and much younger, which is why he needs to lose some fat and muscle,” adds the source.
Incidentally, after wrapping up this film, Sushant might have to reverse the muscle-loss process as Shekhar Kapur’s Paani requires him to have a fuller physique. Despite repeated attempts, Sushant couldn’t be reached for comment.
