To help cope with the loneliness brought by Coronavirus DD National brought back some of its most iconic shows from the 90s for fans across the country. From Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan to Shah Rukh Khan's Circus, a whole bunch of fan-favorite shows is once again back on national television. Along with various other shows Byomkesh Bakshi also returned to tv screens.

 
Now in a recent reveal actor Arjun Kapoor has said that he used to love and still loves watching Byomkesh Bakshi. He also said that he is interested in playing a detective at any point in the future. In a recent interview, Arjun Kapoor said that Byomkesh Bakshi is his favorite fictional detective and he would love to play him in a future remake. He said that as a child he loved the endearing intelligence and charisma of the detective.
 
He added saying, "Whenever I could catch Byomkesh Bakshi as a kid, I remember I enjoyed it thoroughly. For me, Byomkesh was what a hero should be. Slick, super-intelligent, and charismatic, he is one of the best sleuths that I have seen on screen! I have been watching Byomkesh...on TV again and it is pure nostalgia for me."
 
He concluded saying, "I had always wanted to play a detective who saves the day and saves lives. I got to live my childhood dream by playing an undercover agent and saving the country in India's Most Wanted. I still hope I get to play a detective on-screen one day."
