Siddique made his acting debut with the film Aa Neram Alppa Dooram (1985). He got a break with the comedy film In Harihar Nagar (1990). Due to its success, Siddique acted in a variety of comic roles during the early-1990s in films such as Godfather, Manthrikacheppu, Simhavalan Menon, Kasargode Khadarbhai, Thiruthalvaadi, Mughamudra, Kunukkitta Kozhi, and Welcome to Kodaikanal. Siddique turned to more serious roles with Asuravamsam and Lelam (1997). He did a strong villain role in Sathyameva Jayathe (2001), and post its success has done a variety of villain roles. In 2004, he was awarded the Kerala State Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performances in Sasneham Sumitra and Choonda.[1] Siddique ventured into production by co-producing the film Nandanam (2002) under the banner Bhavana Cinema.

Personal life[edit]

He is born on 1 October 1962 at Edavanakkad, in Ernakulam is the youngest child with an elder brother and a sister. He did his primary schooling at a local school in his hometown, Edavanakkad and continued his studies and later took his Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Government Polytechnic, Kalamassery. He then worked as an Electrical Engineer at Kerala State Electricity Board division at Thrissur. After a few years of service in KSEB, he flew abroad to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and worked there for a few more years. Later he quit his job and came back. He started discovering his talents and virtues during his academic at Govt Polytechnic. He started his career as a mimicry artist from there. He is married to Seena, after the suicide of his first wife and have two children. He has a son, Shaheen Siddique from his previous marriage.[2] His eldest son, Shaheen is making his debut with the movie Pathemari.[3]

Career[edit]

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, Vaarafalam, Mughachithram 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 exploration and individuation 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.

1990s[edit]

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.

2000s[edit]

Siddique in 2008

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.[4]
