Babumoshai Bandookbaaz poster

A brand new poster of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s next film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz in which he plays a contract killer was released this evening. Nawazuddin took to his twitter account to release the poster of the film, the teaser of which will be unveiled tomorrow. He wrote, “Kal aate hai milne! #1DayToGo for #BabumoshaiTeaser Tune in to my Facebook live tomorrow at 11 am. #BabumoshaiBandookbaaz”

The first look poster that was released earlier featured Nawazuddin’s back. But now we get a full view of the look of his character in the film.

Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, an action thriller, has been directed by Kushan Nandy and produced by Kiran Shyam Shroff and Ashmith Kunder. The film has had its share of controversies ever since it was announced in 2014 with Chitrangada Singh as the female lead opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui. But she walked out of the film for unknown reasons and Bengali actress Bidita Bag was roped in.

As the posters reveal, the film is a quirky take on the life of a small time contract killer/sharp shooter, Babu, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, his love life and his conflicts and friction with rivals. Babu has been described by the makers as someone who is “lovable and wears his attitude on his sleeves but is also a romantic at heart.” Apart from Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag, the film features Shraddha Das, Divya Dutta and Jatin Goswami in pivotal roles.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui has managed to become the actor to watch out for, with the eclectic mix of roles he chooses to play. Be it the big budget films opposite superstars like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan or the roles that keep you guessing till the end like the one in the upcoming Sridevi starrer Mom and now Babumoshai Bandookbaaz.

Even though there has been no official announcement about the film’s release date, this one is surely among the highly anticipated ones of the year.
