It has been quite a while since Bollywood has churned out a detective film. However, in the coming year there will be many such releases and Dia Mirza۪s production, Bobby Jasoos۪, heads the list. According to Mirza, there is scope for all of the films to do well and she does not consider the other films to be competition for her Vidya Balan starrer.
Our intention was to come first and I am glad that we could meet our timelines. We are the only woman-centric detective film, Mirza said to Absolute India, while also clarifying that her team had started work on Bobby Jasoos۪ long before making an official announcement or hearing of the other detective films being made.
On threatening competition from promising detective films like Dibakar Banerjee۪s Detective Byomkesh Bakshi۪ and Anurag Basu۪s Jagga Jasoos۪, Mirza says, It will be interesting to see how they handle their respective subjects. However I feel there۪s no competition.
Starring Vidya Balan in the title role, Bobby Jasoos۪ is slated for release on Friday 4th July. It will be clashing at the box office with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil۪, which marks the debut of star-kid Armaan Jain.
