The exploits of Byomkesh Bakshi, a brain child of Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, were adapted into a TV series in 1993 by director Basu Chatterjee with Rajit Kapur playing the title role. The series reportedly had 33 episodes.
There were several other adaptations, but Karan, who used to watch detective shows like "Byomkesh Bakshi“ and "Karamchand" as a child, wants to see a big screen version made with the latest technology.
"We should make 'Byomkesh Bakshi' like 'Sherlock Holmes' with full technology, gadgets, women and cars and call him 'B'," Karan, a qualified chemical engineer, told IANS.
Currently seen in comedy show "Hum Aapke Hain In Laws", he added: "I don't mind making 'Superman'. Superman is my favourite character. The theory of the film is just amazing because unlike other superheroes, Superman was born as Superman."
