On Tuesday, Director Kushan Nandy spoke to reporters about the truth behind Chitrangda Singh’s walk out during the film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’s trailer launch.
Kushan Nandy stated, “She had the script since past year and half, the script had all the details. And if after that she had any objections and problems I can’t do anything about it, I can’t force her to work. She did not back out of the film due to intimate scenes in the movie, those scenes were already shot. She felt the story had some gaps, the plot had holes and she wished we would change it. It was her decision and its ok.”
He further added, “I am really glad the way it turned out and the situation we are in. I am happy to have Bidita Bag on board; she really worked well with us.”
Kushan Nandy also spoke about the obstacles faced during the shoots in Bengal, “After we started shooting, we found out about the federation worker law in Bengal. That caused us a lot of problems, and if we had continued shooting there we would have faced more problems so we decided to come back. I think it was for best because the landscape we found in UP fits best with the film.”
Babumoshao Bandukbaaz’s lead actress Bidita Bag spoke about how it felt to take Chitrangda’s part in the film, she said, “I didn’t feel any apprehension. I was waiting for such a chance and to find such a role. I am thankful for Chitrangda walking out. I was struggling a lot and I finally got this chance. This is an amazing role with an amazing costar like Nawazuddin Siddiqui.”
Kushan also spoke about the film’s music he said, “There are 5 songs in the film and 3 of them are composed by Gaurav Dagaonkar and there is a song by Debojyoti Mishra. He is the finest music director in Bengal today, it a fabulous song picturized on Nawaz Siddiqui. And the Lyrics are written by Kali Prasad Bhopali.”
The Film’s lead actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been seen recently in Mom and has two more upcoming films like Manto and The Maya Tape and his co actress will be seen in a lead role for the first time. The forth coming film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz stars, Bidita Bag as Pulwa and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Babu is set to visit theaters on 25th August.
