Siddique, who is known for his comedy films in Malayalam, tasted tremendous success in Bollywood with his debut movie ‘Bodyguard’. The Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer went on to become a blockbuster hit and also is the top grosser at the box office this year.
After Bodyguard, Siddique has been flooded with offers in Bollywood. But the director has signed his next movie for the producers Shyam Bajaj and Narendra Bajaj, who had approached him last year itself.
Apparently the producers, who were looking for a good director, had approached Salman Khan during the shooting of ‘Bodyguard’ asking him about Siddique. Salman Khan had nothing but good things to say about Siddique.
“Yes, I asked Salman about Siddique and since he was happy the way Bodyguard was shaping up, he told me I should work with him,” confirms Shyam Bajaj.
The director Siddique is keen on fulfilling his prior commitment before accepting any offers from other Bollywood producers.
“It was nice of Salman to recommend me to Shyam and Narendra Bajaj. I immediately agreed. I also had to keep my word and I am happy that I will be directing a film for them. There is no doubt that it will be a commercial entertainer,” said Siddique.
