Chitrangada Singh and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz” is back on the track and the actress is quite happy about it.
Filmmaker Pritish Nandy’s son Kushan has got this unusual pairing — Chitrangada and Nawazuddin — for his comic thriller.
Reportedly, it hit a roadblock due to financial problems and the shoot was stopped. The film also faced a lot of resistance while shooting in West Bengal, following which there was speculation that Kushan had shelved the project.
“The coming year there will be two projects that I have. The dates of Nawaz went a little haywire… It was unfortunate, so ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ is coming back on track. He is doing very well which is great,” Chitrangada said at an event.
“The other project is ‘Band of Mahrajas’. It is about a Pakistani singer called Billo Mumtaz, it is about her journey. There is a lot of presence of Taliban in Pakistan where lot of musicians are having trouble in pursuing it as the religion doesn’t allow,” she said.
“Band of Maharajas” is helmed by Girish Malik, whose directorial debut “Jal” bagged the National Award for Best Special Effects.
The “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi” actress was talking at launch of Aldo, worldwide chain of shoe and accessory stores.
“For me between style and comfort I would choose style. When it comes to expressing yourself style is important. You should have your own style,” she said.
“It should not be about wearing what is in fashion, it should be what you like…. Woman should do her own thing,” she added.
