Actress producer Dia Mirza says there is a demand for a sequel to Vidya Balan starrer “Bobby Jasoos”.
“People want us to make a sequel to “Bobby Jasoos” but the fact and reality of business is if the prequel does great then we usually see the sequel coming. The merit of the film is high..We got good reviews but the film did not make good numbers at the box office,” said Dia.
“We would like to make a sequel. Its important for us to put out great films before we get into sequel mode. We want to make thoughtful kind of films but they have to be profitable,” she said.
“Bobby Jasoos” is a 2014 comedy-drama film directed by Samar Shaikh and produced by Dia and Sahil Sangha. Starring Vidya Balan, Ali Fazal, Arjan Bajwa, Supriya Pathak and Tanvi Azmi the film failed to create magic at the box office.
It tells the story of Bilqees “Bobby” (Vidya) Ahmed, a Hyderabadi woman who aspires to be a detective despite facing a series of obstacles.
Dia was talking on the sidelines of an event of Genesis Foundation.
