Bollywood What's Happenin'

Tea and Chat with Bobby Jasoos’ Vidya Balan

Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan has followed in the footsteps of India’s esteemed Prime Minister Narendra Modi by visiting one of the same tea stalls that Mr Modi worked at as a boy with his father and brother, during her recent visit to Gujarat, India.

In a scene reminiscent of Modi’s ‘Chai pe Charcha’ (tea and discussion) during the recent Indian General Elections, which many credit for helping him to connect with his key electorate, Vidya too staged her own promotional ‘Jasoosi Charcha’ to engage with her fans ahead of her film Bobby Jasoos release on 4th July 2014.

Bobby Jasoos is a gripping film that sets a new benchmark for the thriller genre in Indian cinema and examines in a clever, witty and fresh way the dynamics of the gender struggle between women and men. The film celebrates the aspiration of ‘Bobby’ (Vidya Balan – The Dirty Picture, Parineeta), who wants to become the number one detective in the old city area of Hyderabad. What ensues is a classic thriller caper that serves up a tantalizing mix of twists and turns, as the vivacious and engaging ‘Bobby’ solves a series of mind-boggling crime cases.
