The film will be shot in one schedule, over a span of 55 days, amongst a host of never seen before real locations that stand testament to the vibrant and royal cultural history of Hyderabad, as it aims to be a summer 2014 release.

This includes Ali Fazal, Arjan Bajwa, Anupriya, Supriya Pathak, Tanvi Azmi, Aakash Dahiya and Rajender Gupta amongst others.

With Shantanu Moitra and Swanand Kirkire collaborating on the music of Bobby Jasoos, the music promises to be exceptional with melodies that are long lasting.

Producer Dia says,”The idea of Bobby Jasoos was born over a year and a half ago! Today, blessed with an ideal cast and fantastic crew we are ready to roll and nothing gives me more pleasure!!! The actors have been busy in workshops, readings, look tests and their enthusiasm and excitement is palpable. Vidya has ably led from the front and her dedication to preparing for this part is evidence to the fact that she is an actor who continues to respects the craft and is hungry for more despite achieving so much already. I can’t wait for Bobby to be unleashed! “

Sahil adds, “When each artiste and crew member approaches their role in the making of a film with a sense of ownership and selflessness, an enviable energy is born and that usually results in an extremely memorable experience and film. We are ready to give it our best and are confident that the audience will find Bobby Jasoos to be well worth the short wait.”
