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.
It features Nawazuddin Siddiqui facing backwards in a lungi and a lota in hand as he is off to answer his nature’s call in an open space. He is also carrying a transistor on his shoulder and a shotgun suspended tucked in at the back of his lungi.

“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 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 action thriller film directed by Kushan Nandy features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bidita Bag, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Roopa Ganguly, Tota Roy Chowdhury and Biswajit Chakraborty.
The film is suppose to hit the theater on May 2017.
