Vidya Balan: I had no clue about Ali’s work!
The Bobby Jasoos actor claims she was unaware about her co-star’s bio
Dia Mirza’s Bobby Jasoos is set to hit the screens this weekend. Vidya Balan will share screen space with Ali Fazal for the first time in Bobby Jassos.
When we asked her how she felt about working with the new actor, The Dirty Picture actor said, “I haven’t seen any of his work before. I had no clue absolutely. But Sahil and Dia were convinced. As long the director believes in an actor it is completely fine and Samar was very sure Ali was right for the part. I didn’t want to get into casting. The team shares all the details with me. Then we had this workshop before shoot where Ali,me, the rest of the cast,Samar and Sanyuktha were there. So that really helped to break the ice and as long as the ice isn’t broken a better result doesn’t come forward. I didn’t consider the pairing was unconventional or anything. He is an actor and after working with him I got to know that he is a very good actor. Very good looking. So I think it’s interesting. Every time there is a new pairing, its interesting.”
