The first look of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s upcoming film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is out and it looks very different from what Bollywood has been dishing out for years.
The film’s first poster, released on Wednesday, shows Nawaz walking into an open field, to answer the nature’s call. He is carrying a Dalda can in one hand (which is also the unofficial national symbol of open defecation), a transistor on his shoulder and a shotgun suspended tucked in at the back of his lungi.
The film has been directed by Kushan Nandy, son of producer Pritish Nandy. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin of Force 2 and Chitrangada Singh.
Last year, the film was caught in a controversy when Chitrangada accused director Kushan of asking her to do things she was not comfortable with for a scene. “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?,” she told Spotboye.com in June 2016.
Nawaz has already been part of Raees and Haramkhor in 2017. His next releases include Manto, Munna Michael and Babhumoshai Bandookbaaz.
