A few days ago, Dia Mirza’s beau Sahil Sangha announced that the Vidya Balan-starrer Bobby Jasoos will be produced by their company. Ever since, talks have been rife about the male lead in the film. And now we have come to know that Ali Fazal, who was seen in 3 Idiots (2009) and Fukrey, has bagged the part opposite Vidya.
“Yes, after painstakingly going through several auditions, we have selected Ali. He blew our mind with his scene. Although he didn’t know a thing about the film, the way he performed in the audition was simply brilliant,” confirms Dia.
Incidentally, Ali will also be seen in a cameo in the Vin Diesel-starrer Fast & Furious 7. “Right now, he is at an interesting phase of his career. And it’s not like we didn’t think of a bigger name, but after watching Ali’s audition, there was no doubt in our minds that he is the right choice. He delivered what was required of him. Now we are eagerly waiting to see Vidya and Ali create magic on the screen,” adds Dia. The film will release in the second half of 2014.
