Adnan Siddiqui divulged that he was mistreated in Hollywood

Adnan Siddiqui stayed in the West for two months for the shoot of his film, A Mighty Heart. He revealed that as he was a Pakistani and not that famous of an actor, he was not treated equally on the set and in terms of the production facilities. Adnan added that Angelina Jolie was given an entire floor in the hotel to stay by the production, where others were allowed to go. He also said that she was not what he expected appearance-wise. However, their kids became fast friends and used to play together.

Adnan Siddiqui further revealed that when the film was called in the Cannes Film Festival, he was given the option to either have his stay in the States financially covered or the tickets to the festival. This mistreatment annoyed him, and he coerced the production to cover for both, and they had to agree reluctantly.

Adnan Siddiqui played an impactful role in the film, Mom alongside his fellow country mate, Sajal Ali and Bollywood biggie, Sridevi. He divulged that working with Bollywood stars was a pleasant experience, but the India-Pakistan political situation affected the pleasantry. He and Sajal were scheduled to promote the film in several Indian states, but he could not cause of the rising tension and also could not attend the film's international promotion campaigns for the same reason.

Adnan shortly addressed that both countries' creative and cultural aspects should be given a free pass, and it benefits artists from both countries and allows them to grow. Adnan also appreciated India's warm hospitality and wishes to work here again.
