Vidya Balan is all set to play the first ever female detective in Bobby Jasoos

Bollywood's first ever female detective is here and it is none other than Vidya Balan who is all set to portray the character. Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha have signed the firebrand actress for their forthcoming feature Bobby Jasoos, to be produced under their banner Born Free Entertainment. Vidya Balan plays the lead in a story that marks the arrival of India's first Lady Detective.

"I found the idea of a lady detective irresistible as I did the title Bobby Jasoos" says Vidya Balan. "I've known Dia and Sahil for many years, they're lovely people and one can sense that this will be their shared labor of love. That's the kind of producers everyone hopes to have. The final clincher was the script by Sanyuktha Chawla and director Samar Shaikh who I'm really looking forward to working with"

Actor, Producer Dia Mirza is equally emphatic. "I'm thrilled to welcome Vidya into the Born Free family,"she says. "The script of Bobby Jasoos bears testimony to the fact that being patient and investing in good stories usually reaps good dividends."

Adds Producer, Director Sahil Sangha:"Bobby Jasoos is the first of three scripts that Born Free has been working on. It's energy is palpable and quite honestly has your attention from the word go. I'm confident that our next big announcement will follow soon given that our focus has been on developing pure and entertaining content that caters to a universal audience."
