Exclusive aamir khan chose Dhoom 3 over Detective Byomesh Bakshi
The engaging and impressive trailer of Sushant Singh Rajput’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! has grabbed every ones attention. The film directed by Dibakar Banerjee brings the tale of under-cover investigator Byomkesh.
The recent reports suggest that Aamir Khan was their (makers) first choice to play the villain.
A leading tabloid quoted an insider as saying, “Around the same time when Aditya Chopra narrated the story of Dhoom 3 to Aamir, Dibakar had approached him with his script. Both were challenging, negative roles for two YRF films. He was in a dilemma, but then finally decided to take up the ‘Dhoom 3’ offer.”
The tabloid also quoted Dibakar as saying, “I wanted to make ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!’ after ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’. I was in talks with the studio and we thought the best guy to play the baddie was Aamir. We narrated the script to him. I didn’t know that ‘Dhoom 3’ was on the slate next with Aamir as the villain. He passed on my script. Two years later, we met after the Byomkesh teaser released and he said he loved it. I guess YRF’s gain was YRF’s loss.”
