“I don’t think there is any sense of competition with that film. All I know is that we have made the best film. I don’t know about that film and don’t know when it is releasing,” Vidya Balan told reporters at the trailer launch of ‘Bobby Jasoos’ on tuesday (May 27).
The film starring Vidya Balan celebrates the aspiration of Bobby, who wants to become the number one detective. Directed by Samar Shaikh, the film is produced by Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha and is presented by Reliance Entertainment. It is slated to release on July 4.
