Television actor Adnan Siddiqui, who has been affiliated with the entertainment industry since more than two decades, will soon be seen depicting an important role in Pakistani film Yalgaar. Adnan shares that he will be portraying the character of an army officer in the film, which has been directed by Dr Hassan Waqas Rana, reports Roznama Express.
The actor says he has been doing unique and challenging roles in television serials, but those who are envious of his success are relentlessly trying to spread negative propaganda. “While some are worried about my age, some object to young female actors being cast opposite me,” he says. “But none of this bothers me,” he comments. “I do my work with honesty and determination. I always try that my acting reflects reality.”
Adnan expresses that despite having been a part of the industry for many years, he continues to do good work, which is why the audience appreciates his acting. “This is why producers of private productions and private channels make and air my drama serials with keen interest. And this is also why I have a multitude of fans in the country and abroad who like my work.”
Other than earning his spurs through mega-budget serials, he is hopeful that his role in Yalgaar will be commended by film enthusiasts. The movie is the most expensive Pakistani film that is being made.
Adnan has acted in television serials such as Meri Zaat Zara-e-Benishan (2009) and Maat (2011). He also played a small role along with Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie in the film A Mighty Heart (2007).
