Vidya Balan's Character In Bobby Jasoos Inspired By Hit TV Show Karamchand!
Vidya Balan's character in her upcoming release Bobby Jasoos, which is touted as India's first female detective film has been making headlines for her supposed 12 avatars in the film. Vidya recently revealed on the sets of Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, that her inspiration for the character has been the famous 1980s detective TV show Karamchand.
"I think that in India, if we became familiar with the word detective, then it was because of (the character) Karamchand. My character Bobby is also inspired by him. But it would not be right to say it is a dedication (to Karamchand)," the National Award winning actress said on Thursday on the set of reality show Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.
Dia Mirza, co-producer of Bobby Jasoos, who was also present on Entertainment Ke Liye... said that although the forthcoming movie has an independent thought behind it, Karamchand is a bit of an inspiration.
"Bobby is a completely independent thought. But yes, 'Karamchand' is one of the first detective shows we have all grown up watching and even Bobby must have...then yes, it can be called an inspiration," Dia said here.
Bobby Jasoos, directed by Samar Shaikh, hits theatres July 4.
