Ali is known for '3 Idiots' and the recent 'Fukrey'. Now he has been signed up opposite Vidya for 'Bobby Jasoos', produced by Dia Mirza and Sahil Sanghvi.
"I am playing the lead with Vidya. We will have a 'hatke' love story. We are doing workshop together... she is fantastic actor. I am not scared to romance her, it will be fun and challenge.
Hope we will have a great chemistry. I am looking forward to it," Ali told PTI. "The script is beautiful, pairing up Vidya and Dia producing the film were the reasons for me to do it," he said. Vidya plays a detective in the film, who, while working on a case, falls in love with a young guy, played by Ali.
