Why did Vidya Balan attend ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor’s dad’s birthday party?

The Paa actor was seen making an appearance at the veteran actor’s birthday bash even though she was sick. Read on to find out why…

Vidya Balan seems really worked up about the release and success of her forthcoming detective film Bobby Jasoos. Tabhi toh the actor is doing everything in her power to have her film float in the news. Recently Siddharth Roy Kapur’s wifey attended her ex-lover Shahid Kapoor’s daddy’s birthday party because she wanted the film veteran to interact with her about his popular television detective series Karamchand.

Vidya is essaying the role of a goofy detective trying to make meaning of her life by living her big dream. Pankaj too documented the role of a witty detective in Karamchand which was India’s first and biggest detective show. Apparently, Pankaj’s better half Supriya Pathak invited Vidya and Dia Mirza to the party as she will also be starring in Bobby Jasoos. Vidya didn’t turn down the Ram-Leela actor’s invitation even though she was not feeling well as she didn’t want to miss out on a chance of talking to the nation’s first telly Jasoos!

About the meeting a gushing Vidya said, “My earliest memory of a detective is Karamchand…And he was probably the only one on the horizon until one got exposed to detective films later..We’ve even paid homage to Karamchand and Kitty in one of the dialogues in Bobby Jasoos. During the workshop, in one of the improvisations, I remember acting like Karamchand and we even laughed about the fact that Karamchand ki biwi meri ma (Supriya Pathak) bani hai .. When I met Pankaj Kapur I wanted to say Bobby Karamchand ki chhati aulad hai but I did not!”

Well, we cannot wait to see Vidya dazzle us with her jasoosi! For more updates on Bobby Jasoos, keep watching this space.
