When Vidya Balan was asked to consider a role in "Bobby Jasoos", she thought she will play assistant to a detective a la Kitty to the popular sleuth Karamchand.

Little did Vidya know that the makers were asking her to essay a female detective in the movie!

In "Bobby Jasoos", produced by Born Free Entertainment, Vidya plays the title role.

Recalling her meeting with producers Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha, as well as the film's director Samar Shaikh and writer Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh, she asked them: "Okay, what is the film that you want to make about?"

Narrating the conversation, she said: "They told me 'It's called 'Bobby Jasoos' and I immediately thought that they want me to play Kitty to Karamchand great!' Then Dia told me we want you to play Bobby Jasoos and I was immediately interested because I had never imagined a female detective.

"I took the script with me, read it, had a few meetings with Samar and Sanyunktha to understand their vision and, as it was a great concept, I immediately agreed to do it."

Releasing July 4, "Bobby Jasoos", presented by Reliance Entertainment, also stars Ali Fazal, Kiran Kumar, Arjan Bajwa, Anupriya Goenka, Zarina Wahab and Tanvi Azmi.
