‘I am in that age where I can’t replace actors like SRK’
Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui’s (right) television shows have made him a popular face in India as well. Even though he gets Bollywood movie offers, the actor is very clear about the roles he does not wish to take up.
“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 act in those kind of roles. I want to prove my metal in that area,” says the 46-year-old actor, who has been part of successful Pakistani shows such as Mere Qatil Mere Dildaar, Kaisi Ye Qayamat, Ru Baru and Ruswaiyaan.
