It was in mid 2013 that Sushant Singh Rajput had been roped for playing the title role. Reports earlier had suggested that Divya Menon, the assistant of Sabsyachi, the fashion designer of international fame would be making debut as actress in the movie as wife of Byomkesh. Rani Mukherje was previously in the cards for becoming the female lead. But Rani had refused to do it, as the role required the character to undertake some bold scenes. Swastika Mukherjee, the Bengali actress was then offered the role. This is a pet project of Dibakar Banerjee, who is interested to provide the country with its very own detective.
