A source associated with the project says, “The makers are keen to have Bollywood actors in the cast since B-Town debutants on TV attract attention. After the Anil Kapoor show, 24, and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Yudh, channels are keen to rope in film folk for finite episode shows.”

Sources say that the makers are currently in talks with Bobby for the project.

“He has apparently given a nod to the project and if all goes well, things will be finalized soon. They intend to make an announcement soon,” the source added.

The makers feel that the show will be an ideal launch pad for Bobby’s television debut.

“It will be a slick detective series; he will do well in the show since the character suits him,” the source said.

Bobby remained unavailable for comment.
