The last time when she played a rebel, she scored a blockbuster with THE DIRTY PICTURE. She went on to challenge the powers that be in KAHAANI and emerged triumphant there too. Never mind her light hearted takes in GHANCHAKKAR and SHAADI KE SIDE EFFECTS, now that Vidya is returning in a central role again, one expects BOBBY JASOOS to be special too.

You seem to be in a challenging mode all over again by playing a female detective in a man's world.

Does that make me a rebel though? No, not all, though perhaps I am being a non-conformist for sure. To be playing a girl of marriageable age from a modest Muslim household and being a detective, that too amateur, is interesting for sure. I think all of that makes the film different from typical detective films for sure. Moreover, the film is set in the old city of Hyderabad which has a very vibrant culture; something which you would see in every frame. It brings its own vivaciousness with it.

CHECK OUT: Bobby Jasoos Movie Review


You just mentioned 'an amateur detective'. In a world where 'True Detective' and 'Sherlock Holmes' are the staple diet of many a television/film loving audience, how does BOBBY JASOOS fit it?


 This is the very USP of the film since Bobby is not trained. She learns on the job despite the fact that she is not the sharpest of them all. The best of it is that she knows that too. Still, she has a childlike innocence and enthusiasm in her when she is solving a case. Every time she makes a discovery, it’s an unbelievable moment for her.

Was it an easy choice for you to make through when the film came your way? After all, the genre is still pretty much unexplored in Bollywood.


 Honestly, when Atul Kasbekar (his company Bling handles my work) told me that Dia (Mirza) and Sahil (Sangha) wanted to meet me for BOBBY JASOOS, in my head I said to myself, 'Oh my God, they either want me to play the lady love of a detective or turn into a character a la Kitty of 'Karamchand'. Since I have always shared such a warm equation with Dia, I was scared how I would say no. She is such a lovely girl and to say no to a known person is always such a difficult thing. Of course, eventually I was hooked though and said yes to them in one month flat. That i s also the fastest I have confirmed a film (smiles)!
