Vidya Balan is essaying the titular role in Born Free Entertainment’s upcoming film Bobby Jasoos however, when the producers of the movie- Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha initially approached her for the film, Vidya assumed that she may have to play ‘Kitty to Karamchand’ in the movie. But the acting powerhouse was pleasantly surprised, when she was told that she’ll be the protagonist of the spy-thriller. Although she is playing many roles in the film as a detective this was just one part of the film!
“The agency that handles me told me that Dia and Sahil wanted to come to me for a film so, we fixed up a meeting and as I was going out of town for four days, I thought let me meet them and probably I can carry the script with me. So Dia and Sahil walked in with the director of the film Samar Shaikh and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh, who has penned the script and I asked them ok what is the film that you want to make about and they told me it’s called Bobby Jasoos and I immediately thought oh they want me to play Kitty to Karamchand… great!”
“Then Dia told me we want you to play Bobby Jasoos and I was immediately interested because I had never imagined a female detective and I was like really? I took the script with me, read it, had a few meetings with Samar and Sanyunktha to understand their vision and as it was a great concept I immediately agreed to do it,” she further adds.
Come July 4, this Kitty will give Karamchand a run for his money. And by that we mean Vidya Balan does! Will she be able to solve the cases being several types of detectives? I guess we will have to wait and find out on July 4th! Bobby Jasoos also stars Ali Fazal, Kiran Kumar, Arjan Bajwa, Anupriya Goenka, Zarina Wahab and Tanvi Azmi among others.
