Nawazuddin Siddiqui is an uninhibited actor. Acting for him is an art form that he enjoys. Hence, he is ready to move mountains for it (which he actually did in a film) or just be some creep in an Oscar-nominated film called Lion. He just doesn’t care and yet another example of the same can be seen in the first look poster of his upcoming film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. It’s the most amusing pic we have seen in the recent times. The tagline reads Banging this summer… Ahem! (Also read: Nawazuddin Siddiqui: Isn’t Saif Ali Khan bigger than Irrfan Khan?)
This film has been in the making for a few years now and ran into many troubles. First, the film had issues with Federation of Cine Technicians and Workers of Eastern India over payment of dues in Kolkata and later, Chitrangada Singh walked out of the film when she was asked to lie on top of Nawazuddin. Yes, it later blew into a major controversy. Apparently, Chitrangada refused to do the scene because she was wearing a petticoat. She walked out of the film right then. She had recalled the whole incident to an entertainment portal 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?”
Finally, after so many roadblocks the film is ready for release. The first look poster is out, so we are guessing the film will be out soon enough. Do let us know what you think about the poster!
