Siddique started his career in the late 1980s with minor roles. His major break came in 1990 when, along with Mukesh, Jagadeesh, and Asokan, he was cast as one of the heroes in In Harihar Nagar. The movie, directed by Siddique (director) and Lal, went on to become a huge success, starting a streak of similar low-budget comedy movies. Siddique became an essential part of such movies along with Mukesh and Jagadeesh. Films in the genre included Manthrikacheppu (1992), Simhavalan Menon, Kasargode Khadarbhai (1992), Thiruthalvadi (1992), Mughamudra (1992), Kunukkitta Kozhi (1992), Mookkillarajyathu (1991), Mimics Parade, Grihapravesam, Welcome to Kodaikanal, Kavadiyattam, KaattilethadiTheverude Aana, Marupuram, VaarafalamMughachithram and Kinnaripuzhayoram. He was cast opposite leading heroines of the time like Parvathy, Shobana, Sunitha, Mathu, and Suchithra. His performance in Godfather by Siddique-Lal was appreciated by Malayalam movie viewers. Siddique also did action roles in some films. In Ayalathe Adheham, he played the role of a villain. In Ekalavyan he played the role of Sarath, a young police officer, supporting Suresh Gopi.
His talent lies in same straight line with how an actor should be in Malayalam - learning from his experience and mistakes. His career curve shows a good inclination towards research and accommodation of variety roles - comedy, villain, character roles and so on..
He is one among the artists who rose from junior artist level to a main actor with his talent and hard work.
The mid-1990s did not go well for Siddique as a number of personal problems affected his career. He made a comeback in the late 1990s with supporting roles in Asuravamsam with Manoj K. Jayan, and in Lelam and Crime File (both with Suresh Gopi). These films ensured his return to the mainstream. In Sathyameva Jayathe, he played a cold-blooded villain opposite Suresh Gopi. Following the success of this film, Siddique was offered a number of opportunities to play villains.
During this period, he also acted in television serials. His role in Sthree with Vinaya Prasad was a huge hit among Malayalam television audiences. He also anchored a musical programme called Sallapam in Doordarshan. Siddique has also anchored other musical programmes including Sangeetha Samagamam in Amrita TV and Symphony in Kairali TV, in the 2000s.
In 2002, he produced Nandanam, directed by Ranjith. The movie featured young actors Prithviraj Sukumaran and Navya Nair. Siddique appeared in a small but completely different role in the film. This was a box-office hit despite the absence of major stars.
Siddique started appearing in a number of different looks in his later films. This can be seen in films such as Chota Mumbai, Hallo, Nadiya Kollappetta Rathri, Udayon, Vellinakshatram, The Tiger, and Alibhai.
He encouraged director Lal to create the sequel to In Harihar Nagar. The movie 2 Harihar Nagar was released in 2009 with the middle-aged actors Jagadeesh, Mukesh, and Asokan coming together. Again in 2010 he appeared the series' third part, named In Ghost House Inn.
In April 2011, Siddique launched Kerala's first family magazine Family Facebook. Siddique is the editor of the monthly magazine that is rich with stories of the players in the Malayalam film industry – actors, directors, playback singers and others.
