‘I am in that age where I can’t re­place ac­tors like SRK’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Yashika Mathur

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.
