In the film, Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays a contract killer in Uttar Pradesh who, he quips, works for Yamraj (God of Death). He says he is like the desi James Bond. "When we were learning acting in NSD (National School of Drama) we used to watch a lot of Bond movies. There were phases, so one year we would watch only Al Pacino movies, and act like him, then following year some other actor. We did that then stopped because our teacher told us this is wrong. She said you might get another role and shades of all this will show in it. But I used to be very impressed with Bond. I have used gestures of him in my films. This character is desi Bond," he said.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui was last seen in Sridevi's MOM, in which he played a detective and got rave reviews for his performance. Babumoshai Bandookbaz is directed by Kushan Nandy and releases on August 25.
