Vidya Balan, who will be seen as a detective in Bobby Jasoos, is going to start spying on Bollywood stars through a blog.



Titled Bobby Ko Sab Malum Hai, the blog will have Bobby writing, sharing exclusive Bollywood news and gossip. "She will bring you the biggest and the best news first," spokesperson of Bobby Jasoos said in a statement.

Bobby Jasoos also stars Ali Faisal, who plays Vidya's love interest. Supriya Pathak, on the other hand, will be seen as her mother.

Dia Mirza, who has produced Bobby Jasoos, says the attempt with the film is to create a commercial entertainer that revolves around a female character. Dia said, "We've tried to make a mainstream, commercial film with a female protagonist, and which is a family entertainer...We've always noticed that a girl's character in a film is either a catalyst or just a dressing."

She agrees that there have been many woman-centric films recently, but all on serious subjects. "We have seen very few Hindi films in today's time where a girl is the centre of action in a commercial, family entertainer," said Dia.

Directed by Samar Shaikh, Bobby Jasoos hits theatres on July 4.
