Mumbai: Dia Mirza says the attempt with her new production, the forthcoming detective comedy `Bobby Jasoos`, is to create a commercial entertainer that revolves around a female character.
"We`ve tried to make a mainstream, commercial film with a female protagonist, and which is a family entertainer...We`ve always noticed that a girl`s character in a film is either a catalyst or just a dressing..." the 32-year-old said here Thursday at the music launch of the film at Radio Mirchi studio.
She agrees that there have been many woman-centric films recently, but all on serious subjects.
"We have seen very few Hindi films in today`s time where a girl is the centre of action in a commercial, family entertainer," said Dia.
`Bobby Jasoos` stars Vidya Balan in the lead while Ali Fazal plays the male lead. The film is directed by Samar Shaikh and hits theatres July 4.
