Nawazuddin Siddiqui's next, Chittagong hit theatres on Friday and the actor says the audience will get to see performances and not the usual costume drama seen in other films.

"Audience will get to see all those elements in the film which they don't get to see in other films. If you want to see good actors and performances, then you should watch this film," the 38-year-old said in an interview.

"In other films, audience are used to seeing costume drama. In this film, you will get to see acting. All the actors are very good," he added.

He was applauded for his role of Faisal Khan in Gangs of Wasseypur 2, but says his character in Chittagong is completely opposite.

"It's a very soft and romantic character. Romance is done within limits in this film unlike 'Gangs of Wasseypur', in which there were no boundaries for romance. There was no need to seek permission before touching. There is nothing like this in Chittagong," Nawazuddin said.

He has been in Bollywood since 1999, when he played small roles in films like Shool, Sarfarosh and Munnabhai MBBS.

However, he gained recognition as a small-town journalist Rakesh in Peepli Live in 2010. He will next be seen in Aamir-Khan starrer "Talaash".
