The final clincher was the script by SanyukthaChawla and Director Samar Shaikh who I'm really looking forward to working with"

Actor, Producer DiaMirza is equally emphatic. "I'm thrilled to welcome Vidya into the Born Free family," she says. "The script of Bobby Jasoos bears testimony to the fact that being patient and investing in good stories usually reaps good dividends."

I'm confident that our next big announcement will follow soon given that our focus has been on developing pure and entertaining content that caters to a universal audience. Fingers crossed"

Born Free is happy to be again working with many of the people they associated with in their first production however Dia and Sahil will miss Zayed as he will not be continuing his association as co-producer as he would like to pursue his acting career and has responsibilities towards his father’s production house because of which he will not be able to depute time for this.
