Aamir refused to play baddie in Detective Byomkesh...: Dibakar

Director Dibakar Banerjee says that he had initially approached actor Aamir Khan to play the villain in his Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, but he rejected the offer. “I was trying to make this film (Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!) about two years ago and at that time I was looking for a villain who can give competition to Byomkesh and can also attract the audience.

“So, we went to Aamir and gave the narration to him but he passed the film and said ‘may be not this one’. Later on I came to know that he is doing Dhoom 3 in a villainous role,” Dibakar revealed here on Monday at the second trailer launch of the film. “I think if YRF (Yash Raj Films) gained something, then it lost something as well,” he added.
