One of the first films to shoot Siddiqui to fame, Gangs of Wasseypur 2 gave us Faizal in full bloom: Lecherous, violent and irreverent.
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.
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.
Siddiqui appears in a relatively rare positive role as as Saadat Hasan Manto in Nandita Das' Manto. The actor shares a striking physical resemblance to the late author and delivers a towering performance that communicates Manto's pain, vulnerability and strength.
Siddiqui becomes the looking glass through which we unravel the mysteries of Raat Akeli Hai.
From Tabu in Andhadhun to Supriya Pathak in Ram-Leela
