The first poster of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, in the lead role has made us wonder. The actor’s face is hidden but through his dressing, we get to know that he plays a lower-middle-class man who is out to answer nature’s call. But why carry a gun for it? Well, the actor is said to be playing the role of a contract killer. Apart from him, the film will also star Chitrangada Singh, who after a long time is coming back on screen.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has been directed by Kushan Nandy, son of ace producer Pritish Nandy. The film was supposed to be released last year but due to lack of resources, the date of release had to be shifted. The film had issues with Federation of Cine Technicians and Workers of Eastern India over payment of dues in Kolkata.
Apart from that, the film release date was delayed due to Chintrangada, who had a face-off with the director. She told a daily saying, “We finished the shot and Kushan said that he didn’t like it. He wanted me to lie on top of Nawaz. Now let me tell you that I was wearing a petticoat for that scene. I turned around to tell Kushan about my predicament. I told him: ‘Ho toh gaya. Kyun kar raha hai aise? Please try to understand that I am wearing a petticoat. But, he was in no mood to listen and we ended up having a big, loud argument. And wait till you hear this! A few minutes later he went and told Nawaz that we had shot the intimate scene very well!! Can you beat that?”
