Pakistani drama Industry’s chocolate hero Adnan Siddiqui will very soon be making his Bollywood debut alongside veteran Indian actress Sridevi.
Adnan talked about his future plans in a recent interview with Hindustan Times. He also shared the names of 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 is so far very pleased with the positive response he is getting in 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.”
Adnan deeply feels that there is ‘NO Cultural Difference’ between Pakistan and India.
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.”
#June04 #humayunsaeed #sushmitasen #adnansiddiqui. Ten years ago, Sushmita Sen came to #Pakistan, #Karachi to be specific, for the very first time. She was here with #SaifAliKhan and #MalaikaKhan, accompanied by a professional #Indiandance troupe. They were all here for a #concert/extravaganza held at the far out locale of the #ArabianCountryClub. The security situation was better back then and so were the roads and the late drive out and back to such a distant venue didn’t appear all that far fetched. Anyway, bottom line is that while Saif serenaded with his guitar and Malaika grooved to popular beats, Sushmita wowed Karachi by interacting with the crowd and narrating Urdu poetry much to the delight of everyone. She was a charmer, nothing less. The event was organised by Fakhr-e-Alam's #IndusTree along with #BR&W. Organizer #FakhreAlam anchored the show and made it a point to wittily remind the audience that there were a lot of freebies in the crowd.
