Vidya, who calls the film a ''dramedy', promises both fun and thrill in Bobby Jasoos. Her character does not look over-the-top, unlike her Ghanchakkar avatar.



Vidya is known to go the extra mile for not only getting under the skin of the characters she plays on the big screen, but also for looking the part. In her past films, she has played a pregnant woman, a garishly dressed Punjabi and even an ’80s actress with effortless ease. 

The trailer show 4-5 avatars of Balan. From maulavi to postman, Vidya aces all the looks.
