Balan plays the lead in a story that marks the arrival of India's first lady detective.
"I found the idea of a lady detective irresistible as I did the title Bobby Jasoos" says Balan.
"I've known Dia and Sahil for many years, they're lovely people and one can sense that this will be their shared labour of love. That's the kind of producers everyone hopes to have. The final clincher was the script by Sanyuktha Chawla and Director Samar Shaikh who I'm really looking forward to working with" she said.
Actor-producer Dia Mirza is said, "I'm thrilled to welcome Vidya into the Born Free family."
"The script of Bobby Jasoos bears testimony to the fact that being patient and investing in good stories usually reaps good dividends," she said.
The film commences shooting mid-November this year and will be ready for a summer 2014 release.
