After playing a pregnant woman in ‘Kahaani’, a hip-shaking actress in ‘The Dirty Picture’ and a loud Punjabi woman in ‘Ghanchakkar’, Vidya Balan is back, and this time as a simple woman with a big dream – to be a detective in ‘Bobby Jasoos.’

After being turned away from quite a few doors, Bobby finally sets up her own detective agency. She finally lands a huge assignment, wherein she has to find a missing person. Set in the city of Hyderabad, Bobby (Vidya Balan) seems determined and she sets out on her chase.


Her family turns their backs on her, owning to her choice of career. However, Tasawur, played by Ali Fazal, who plays her love interest in the film stands by her. Even though the age difference is quite noticeable, the unconventional pair has something endearing about them that seems to click.

Vidya Balan, who undoubtedly looks her pretty self, is seen donning quite a few disguises – postman, maulvi, beggar, then a woman with huge braces. Pictures of her dressed as an astrologer and as a beggar have been doing the rounds on the net.

Vidya Balan, who will be seen in 22 different avatars, had given 122 look tests for the movie.


‘Bobby Jasoos’ is the first detective film with a female lead and expectations are sky-high from the National Award winning actress.

Directed by Samar Shaikh, ‘Bobby Jasoos’ is co-produced by Dia Mirza’s Born Free Entertainment along with fiancé Sahil Sangha and Reliance Entertainment.

‘Bobby Jasoos’ is slated to hit theatres on July 4.
