MUMBAI: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who will be seen playing role of a contract killer in his upcoming "Babumoshai Bandukbaaz", thinks murderers can be romantic at heart also.

When asked if he will be seen romancing in the film, the "Gangs of Wasseypur 2" star said: "Why not? Contract killers can also be romantic."

Nawazuddin was speaking at the poster shoot of "Babumoshai Bandukbaaz" on Monday.

"Romance can be done in many ways. Every person has their own way to express romanticism," he added later.

"My role is of contract killer 'Babumoshai'. He is different so his expression of love is different too. In 'Gangs of Wasseypur 2', my role was of a shy person who asked for permission to hold his girlfriend's hand. Here 'Babumoshai' is fearless. He romances on the basis of the gun," he told the reporters here.

The action thriller film directed by Kushan Nandy features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bidita Bag, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Roopa Ganguly, Tota Roy Chowdhury and Biswajit Chakraborty.

Nawazuddin was also asked about his thoughts on nepotism in Bollywood, he said, "I don't think nepotism exists in Bollywood otherwise I could not have been in this position today. Good work and talent may take the time to get recognised but always earns respect."
