Siddique, who marked his successful debut to the Hindi film industry back in 2011 with Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer Bodyguard, is a name to reckon with down South. The talented writer-director is known for having his films being remade in different languages and having an impressive box-office record for the same.
The director is currently working on a Tamil film, which is a remake of his 2015 Malayalam film Bhaskar The Rascal, which featured Mammootty and Nayantara. He is all set to remake the film in Hindi next year as well.
When quizzed on his choice of actor for the protagonist’s role, he promptly replied, saying Sanjay Dutt. In other words, he hopes to make the Hindi version of this film with Dutt playing the leading man. “I will start working on the Hindi version of this film next year,” he says.
Ever since Dutt has been back to the grind, he has been flooded with offers. It will be interesting to watch Dutt in this flick.
