People still remember me as Byomkesh, says Rajit Kapur

Back in 1993, Basu Chatterjee’s television series Byomkesh Bakshi, based on the life of a fictional detective, received wide critical acclaim. Talking about the re-running of the show on Doordarshan during the 21-day lockdown, Rajit Kapur, who played the titular character, says, “It has been airing every three years.
