Actress Dia Mirza and her long time boyfriend Sahil Sangha have signed Vidya Balan for their forthcoming detective movie Bobby Jasoos, to be produced under their banner Born Free Entertainment.
The Dirty Picture actress will play the lead in the film.
“I found the idea of a lady detective irresistible as I came up with the title Bobby Jasoos. 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,” said Vidya.
Mirza is equally enthusiastic about the movie and said, “I’m thrilled to welcome Vidya into the Born Free family. The script of Bobby Jasoos bears testimony to the fact that being patient and investing in good stories usually reaps good dividends.”
The shooting for the movie will start mid-November this year and will be ready for a summer 2014 release. Dia and Sahil last produced Love Breakups Zindagi, a romantic comedy starring Dia Mirza and Zayed Khan among others.
