Siddique, who directed Salman Khan in Bodyguard, has signed his next film for producers Shyam Bajaj and Narendra Bajaj.
Last year when the Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer Bodyguard was being shot, Bajaj who was looking for a good director and had enquired about Siddique.
"I asked Salman about Siddique and since he was happy the way Bodyguard was shaping up, he told me I should work with him," said Shyam Bajaj.
Post the huge success of Bodyguard, Siddique had offers from almost every banner possible but since this was a commitment made even before his debut film's release he kept his word and told all the producers that he would first fulfil his prior commitment of making the film with the Bajajs and then may consider other offers.
"It was nice of Salman to recommend me to them, I immediately agreed. I also had to keep my word and I am happy that I will be directing a film for them. There is no doubt that it will be a commercial entertainer," said Siddique, known for his comedy films in Malayalam cinema.
