Of co-starring with Nawazuddin, Bidita, who has worked in films such as Past Is Present, From Sydney with Love and Ichhe earlier told news agency PTI, "He is one of the best actors that I have ever worked with.

Speaking about his character in the film, Nawazuddin said told IANS, "I do not like a character that is either an extreme villain or a hero. But I think that as time goes by, things are changing. These days, even heroes are playing characters with grey shades because I believe grey characters are more real. There are bad and good characteristics in all of us."
The cast of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz also includes actors like Jatin Goswami, Murli Sharma, Divya Dutta and Shraddha Das.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz releases along with Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez' A Gentleman and debutant Aadar Jain's Qaidi Band.
