Actress Bidita Bag who got her big break with Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is all set to woo audiences with her stunning performance in the upcoming flick. Bidita is essaying the role of contract killer’s girlfriend played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She is excited as the movie gives her ample space to show her talent despite of having Nawaz as the male lead. The film got mired in controversies after former Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani asked to chop off 48 scenes in spite of giving A certificate. The movie also has Shraddha Das who is portraying the role of a Bhojpuri B grade struggling actress.
In a Facebook live conversation with India TV, both the actresses revealed their experiences about working in the movie. Bidita's character is bold and independent, hence there are multiple intimate scenes filmed between her and Nawazuddin. She said the initially love scenes were being filmed sweetly and cutely but she insisted to bring rawness to give the feel of the region. She even asked for multiple retakes to give the scene her best. Earlier, Bidita found it bit difficult to play the character of a woman from rural area. Well, seeing the trailer it's difficult to believe so.
On replacing Chitrangada Singh, she said that the Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi actress is one of her favourites and was well aware why she left the movie. Bidita said that she found the script interesting but moreover she had faith on Nawaz. Actor like Nawaz who is well known for giving solid performances won't risk his reputation with unpromising movies, she added. However, Bidita assured viewers that they won't be missing Chitrangada after watching the movie.
Bidita agrees to the fact that with Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, she has become popular even before the film release, the credit of which she gives to the sacked Censor Board Chief. At the same time, she also says that the movie is well made and viewers won't be disappointed.
Shraddha Das, who has earlier worked in many regional films said that it was tough for her to prepare for the role of a Bhojpuri B grade actresses as she is born and brought up in Mumbai. She said that she saw Haryanavi dancer Sapna Choudhary's videos and also clips of Sambhavna Seth's arguments in Bigg Boss house to prepare for the role.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is now being released with 8 voluntary minor cuts thus keeping intact the essence of the film. Nawaz took to Twitter to express his gratitude for FCAT and said that the movie will now release with its original flavour on August 25.
