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.
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.
“The film is ready to hit the theatres, but the makers are having a tough time searching for an ideal dancer. The girl is still to be finalised to shoot the song,” reveals a source. The movie had been announced back in 2014, with Nawazuddin and Chitrangada Singh.
The movie’s woes began the same year, with the filmmakers having to dump the footage they shot in Kolkata in December. Even as the film went on floors around June 2016 in Lucknow again, starting from scratch, Chitrangada walked out of the movie. A heated argument with director Kushan Nandy was supposed to have been the cause of the walkout. The movie was stalled yet again after it hit another roadblock due to financial problems. It remains to be seen how Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ makers plan to tide over this problem.
