Being selective is what he believes helped him make it in this industry. He says he was choosy even when he had no films on hand. had seen what had happened to some people before me. How they took everything that came to them and then they suffered. I am not going to do the same, he says.

Then there came a surprise festival hit, Patang that got directors taking a second look at his talent and on canada goose outlet miami screen presence.
Gangs of Wasseypur was the big shift and once the movie released, he was flooded with offers. got almost 150 scripts, all of which I rejected. I had to be careful, having seen my seniors take on work that made them go down just as fast as they became stars. I do not regret turning down a single one of those scripts, he says.
Siddiqui who has a movie based on the life of Manto coming up, is applying the same principle to his endorsements.
