Vidya Balan says that the very idea of playing the role of a female detective in Bobby Jasoos was pretty exciting for her. Vidya has played various characters in her films before, but being a female detective was something different for her. She plays this role in the film Bobby Jasoos.
Reports say that Vidya didn’t take much time to give a nod to accepting the film. Before that she was doing the film Shaadi Ke Side Effects with Farhan Akhtar. As far as Bobby Jasoos is concerned, it is produced by another Bollywood actress Dia Mirza along with Sahil Sangha and is directed by Samar Shaikh, for whom it is a directorial debut.
Speaking about her role, Vidya said that she never imagined anyone making a film on a female detective. Even Vidya admitted that she took so less time to agree to do a film, which generally she doesn’t.
Spy films, both in Hollywood and Bollywood are mainly male dominated and the presence of a lady in the story is only as a subordinate or to add some glamour to it. But Vidya Balan may just change that.
