Mumbai: Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is meeting some real-life female detectives for her role in the upcoming film `Bobby Jasoos`.
Vidya, who will be playing a gumshoe in the movie, has been interacting with women detectives apparently to get first hand information about their work.
In the course of her training and preparation, the actress is trying to pick tricks of trade to give a touch of authenticity to her on screen role.
"Vidya has been meeting a lot of female detectives and it was surprising that most of them are housewives who have taken this up as a part time job," Spokesperson of `Bobby Jasoos` said in a statement here.
Vidya is very surprised as she realised that 85 per cent of the detectives she has met are housewives who undertake this as a part time job when their children are away in school.
`Bobby Jasoos` is produced by actress-turned-producer Dia Mirza and her beau Sahil Sangha.
