As a side effect, starring in a period drama film ought to afford few opportunities to appear in character while on publicity duty. However, it seems nothing is impossible for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, who time travelled from the Kolkata of 1943 to the present day to solve a case with television's favourite crime fighters, CID.
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be seen in the titular role in Dibakar Banerjee's film, was spotted shooting for a special promotional episode of the hit TV series in Mumbai on March 30.
