One of Bollywood’s finest actresses, Vidya Balan will turn super sleuth in her forthcoming film: Bobby Jasoos, which releases on 4th July 2014 by Reliance Entertainment. Famed for playing strong female protagonists and for breaking the stereotype of a Hindi film heroine, Vidya portrays the lady detective ‘Bobby’ with dedication and suitable aplomb, marking a new direction in the career of this ever-versatile actress. The gripping film 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.
Bobby Jasoos is directed by Samar Shaikh, whose impressive cache of work includes being the assistant director on the worldwide hit franchise Dhoom. The film is co-produced by Bollywood actress Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha under their production banner Born Free Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment. Be sure to catch Vidya Balan as the quirky Bobby in Bobby Jasoos, releasing July 4th!
