Vidya Balan is one fantabulous actress who has all the gumption and guts to swim against the flow and still carve a different image as an actress in the Bollywood industry. To promote Bobby Jasoos, she actually dressed up like a pauper and surprised Hritik Roshan on his sets. He didn’t recognize her in the getup until the crew on the sets started prodding him about who she is.
Vidya Balan started her acting career from the television comedy sitcom Hum Paanch. Vidya Balan plays a variety of characters in a single film. She is almost unrecognizable in her costumes for Bobby Jasoos. This movie is directed by Samar Shaik and written by Samayukta Chawla. Bobby Jasoos has many first time actors. This movie is produced by Dia Mirza, Reliance Entertainment, and Sahil Sangha. Vidya plays the quintessential character that is ambitious of being the top detective in Hyderabad. This movie has a lot of Hyderabadi lingo.
Most of the characters she plays in the film have been inspired by most of the hoi polloi in Hyderabad. The charm of Old City in Hyderabad might just be picturesque. It is said that the character of Vidya as a pauper looked so authentic in the film that people actually started giving her alms. Shantanu Moitra is doing the background score of this film. This movie had Vidya and Ali Fazal in the main lead. Ali Fazal is a 27 year old actor hailing from the city of Nawabs, Lucknow. He has featured in many popular television ad films such as Slice, Union Bank of India, LG, etc. He has done a very small role in the blockbuster movie 3 Idiots. He played the role of Joy Lobo, a dreamer who is disillusioned by the conventional academic system and finally commits suicide.
The movie also casts popular actors such as Tanvi Azmi, Supriya Pathak, and Zarina Wahab. Bobby Jasoos has Vidya Balan in the female detective role. It is impossible to guess this storyline given the variety of characters being played by Vidya Balan. Throughout her career Vidya Balan has done many offbeat roles and a wide variety of characters. Vidya is a versatile actor, and her performance in movies like the The Dirty Picture, Kahaani, Paa, etc won her National Filmfare awards. This is the first time she will be seen in such a role. She has never played a female detective before.
Vidya is very selective about her roles in the movies. She has bagged the best of films and her performance in each of her movie has been highly revered. This fictitious story about a detective is a romantic comedy. This movie has been shot in Hyderabad‘s Old City for most part. Vidya also cloaked as a character from her movie Bobby Jasoos and played a prank with Arbaaz Khan and Sohail Khan. Nobody could recognize her until one of her crew members hinted them about Vidya’s real image. Vidya is promoting her movie by dressing like the characters in her latest film and playing pranks on Bollywood stars.
