After wooing the audience with his acting skills, he put on his dancing shoes, but Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s not going to stop at that. Becoming the latest celebrity to join the actor-turns-rapper trend, he’s all set to wield a mic for ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz.’
Nawazuddin will be trying his hands at rapping with the fun, peppy number titled ‘Humre Baap Ka Bitwa Bandookbaaz’ that is written by Ashmith Kunder and composed by music director Gaurav Dagaonkar.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, the 42-year-old actor said “I love trying new things! I have never danced in my life, and now not only am I dancing but also rapping. When you get down to actually doing it, you realise it’s not that difficult.”
The ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ star added that he has no problems in remembering long dialogues, so remembering the rhyming lyrics of the rap won’t be hard.
He continued, “Once I remember a long part, especially if it is in continuation, it’s easy to keep repeating it as it gets stuck in my head. That’s why I don’t forget my lines and also why I am not worried about rapping.”
“The song is as quirky and funny as my character in the film, so it will be catchy. I think people will enjoy it,” the ‘Manjhi – The Mountain Man’ star concluded.
The film, directed by Kushan Nandy, son of producer Pritish Nandy, follows small-time contract killer Babu, played by Nawaz, his friends and rivals, and what happens when he falls in love and takes up a tricky assignment.
The movie also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin of ‘Force 2’ and Chitrangada Singh
On a related note, Nawazuddin will be next seen also in ‘Munna Michael’ and Nandita Das’ ‘Manto.
