Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the actor, the legend who has amazed the audience with his solid performances like Manjhi, Gangs of Wasseypur, Raman Raghav and Kick. Now he’s back with Babumoshai Bandookbaaz and from the trailer it seems, it is going to be raw.
Nawaz is going to play the role of a goofy, sleazy yet badass gangster. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is the perfect film for Nawaz to show his skills as an actor. The film has a strong cast. Though there are many new faces. They all looked promising in the trailer. Bidita Bag, Jatin Goswami and Divya Dutta all look convincing as their respective characters.
From the reports, it is known that ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ was initially supposed to have Chitrangada Singh cast opposite the actor. However, Chitrangada walked out of the film in midway due to discomfort shooting intimate scenes with co-star Nawazuddin.
Krish Nandy said, “There were multiple issues with her… She had my script with her for one and a half years. The script was in detail, it had everything specified and even then if someone has any problem, I can’t force anyone.”
He added, “There was no issue about intimate scenes because she had already shot it. She had issues with the script and wanted certain things to be changed. It was her decision (to not do the film).”
Bengali actress Bidita Bag replaced Chitranga Singh in the film. She was quite happy with the role. There was no worry in taking over. She said, “I was waiting for an opportunity like this, where I could give an impressive performance. I am thankful to her (Chitrangada) for leaving this role.”
The trailer is out and it has already crossed 3 million views in a day. Check it out.
‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ is set to release on 25th August. The movie has already gained quite a buzz with the Chitrangada Singh leaving and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s intimate scenes.
