"You can't take an extremely popular star, who is probably not a good actor and cast him in my film because it will be a mismatch," Banerjee said.
"Whenever I think of casting people, it is a natural mix of star power and abilities. Ultimately it's the business of using icons to tell something new. So even I need icons for people to connect with my story like any other storyteller," Banerjee said.
The 43-year-old is currently working on two scripts, and one of them is a detective thriller.
