Did you know?: Adnan Siddiqui to be seen in Pakistani film Yalgaar

Published: May 22, 2014

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).

    “The movie is the most expensive Pakistani film that is being made.” or The movie is the most anticipated Pakistani film that is being made”. where have we heard this before this time the most number of films have been announced than ever in the Pakistani film industry but in 2014 the release of any of them has been limited. The many useless social websites that have sprung up release…poster…trailers and some songs but will someone please do a report on the number of films in production and they anticipated release date& not with the useless data that every film is the most anticipated expensive on the horizon for release

    @Karima Santosh:

    Quantity is not everything. If we go for quantity than Bollywood produces most number of films in the world but all of them are crap and cheap copy of Hollywood so whats the point of just counting the number of junk items produced?

    @ABKhan – You missed the point by a mile stone I am not asking for quantity I am just saying the reported announcement of films does NOT match the output of releases.
    I agree with you “Bollywood produces most number of films in the world but all of them are crap and cheap copy imitations of B-Hollywood even if 50% of the announced films make it to the screen is acceptable also there is a big thirst for decent Pakistani films from those living abroad and the WEST that is tired of the masala Bollywood repeats. To give you an example “WAAR” has not been released in the US & there are no notifications of any release soon we need a better marketing platform that satisfies local Pakistanis and those abroad as there are certain Pakistani films that are released abroad but never make it back to Pakistan.
