Pakistani Dramas Are At Par With Indian Films: Adnan Siddiqui

Adnan Siddiqui has been associated with the field of acting for a very long time now. He has played all kinds of characters in this period of time. Recently, his play “Maat” went on air in India. Indian viewers were impressed by Adnan Siddiqui’s acting in the play. Nowadays another drama starring Adnan Siddiqui is currently on air on Indian channel Zee Zindagi which is “Mere Qatil Mere Dildar”. While talking to Zee News on the phone Adnan Siddiqui said,

Our dramas match Indian movies. We tell the story in a similar manner like filmmakers in India do. Our main focus is the content and it is no less that of Bollywood. We put emphasis on the script and performances. Indian directors make wonderful stuff and Pakistani dramas match that quality.”

Talking about the viewership and content of Indian dramas he said,

“There was a time when Indian soaps had an amazing fan following in Pakistan. That is still there to some extent, but I think there should be more realistic serials, the stories, direction, everything needs to move on from the old stuff, according to me.”

When asked if he is interested in working in a Bollywod film, he said,

“I would love to do a Bollywood film but I will not approach people for work in India. In fact, once I was asked to give an audition for the role of a villain in a Hindi film. I was shocked because in my 22 years of acting career, I have never given any audition or test in Pakistan.”

Adnan Siddiqui also appreciated Indians for having an eye for talent, he said,

“Look at Fawad Khan or Ali Zafar; they have become popular in India because people have recognised their talent. Indians have an eye for talent. I feel they don`t waste any opportunity in grabbing a good actor.”

Talking about his character in “Mere Qatil Mere Dildar” Adnan Siddiqui said,

“People will see my versatility as a performer and I only wanted that. I have never played a villain before `Mere Qatil Mere Dildar` so it was a challenge but I enjoyed.”
