One of the first films to shoot Siddiqui to fame, Gangs of Wasseypur 2 gave us Faizal in full bloom: Lecherous, violent and irreverent.

Badlapur on Zee5

Siddiqui revels in his role as Liak, a two-faced, reptile-like bank robber who claims innocence until he can't. His scenes with Varun Dhawan make for some of the best in this Sriram Raghavan thriller.

Raman Raghav 2.0 on Amazon Prime Video

Inspired by the real story of serial killer Raman Raghav, director Anurag Kashyap casts Siddiqui as Ramanna, a deranged murderer. Siddiqui delivers a chilling performance as a nightcrawler on the hunt for his next victim.
