told that she will be the protagonist of the spy-thriller.

the film Samar Shaikh and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh,
who penned the script and I asked them ok what is the film that you
want to make about and they told me it's called Bobby
Jasoos and I immediately thought oh 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 and I was like really? 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," she further adds.
