”I Can’t Replace Shah Rukh Khan” – Adnan Siddiqui

Adnan Siddiqui will be making his Bollywood debut alongside veteran Indian actress Sridevi. In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Adnan Siddiqui shared his future plans and also talked about the actors that he looks up to. “I am in that age where I cannot replace actors like Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan. They are great actors and are really famous in Pakistan. If I want to come in that league, I will be kicked out so badly that I won’t be able to see myself. I want to adopt the formula in India what Irrfan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, KK Menon and Manoj Bajpayee have taken up. I want to fit in that kind of role. I want to prove my metal in that area.”


Adnan Siddiqui said that that he is happy with the positive response he is getting from India. “It’s a great feeling all together when you see your work being appreciated. The grass is always greener on the other side and we also have loved the shows in India. I feel that my contemporaries and I want to produce the shows the same way and give good content.”


Comparing Pakistani and Indian cultures, Adnan Siddiqui said, “We both have the same kind of culture. I hardly see any difference. What is the difference in two countries? I think it is just P and I. I cannot help but think that once they were the same country. There is not much cultural change. People do ask me about Pakistani shows and I tell them that they have two ways of doing it and we have different way of doing it. It is just about the mind and thought.”



And they are right when they say, 'Writing is a form of therapy'.
