The teaser of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s upcoming film, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, has been very well received and fans are undoubtedly rooting for Nawaz Bhai’s expected flawless performance.

Ever actor needs an inspiration in order to play a certain part, and Nawazuddin lets us in on his idols who he has attempted to ape as the stylish contract killer.

On the other hand, Nawazuddin Siddiqui highlights the on-going problems with regards to racism in the industry, which definitely trumps over the perils of nepotism.
