Abdur Razzak (born 23 January 1942) is a Bangladeshi actor and film director.[2] He is referred to as Nayak Raj Razzak, a title given by Ahmed Zaman Chowdhury, editor of Chitrali.[3] He was given the Independence Day Award in 2015 by the Government of Bangladesh.[3]

Early life[edit]

Razzak was born in Naktala, South Kolkata.[1] His parents Akbar Hossain and Nisarunnesa died at early ages.[1][4] During his adolescence, he participated in theatre productions in Kolkata. While studying at a college in Kolkata, he made his first film appearance in "Ratan Lal Bangali". Hoping to become a film star, Razzak went to study film in Filmalaya in Mumbai, India in 1961.[4] Returning from Mumbai, he performed in two movies in Kolkata, "Pankotilak" and "Shilalipi". However, the Hindu-Muslim riot which broke out in 1964 forced Razzak and his family to migrate to Dhaka.

After migrating to East Pakistan, Razzak found the path to stardom was not easy. Initially, he acted in TV plays. He became a favourite of the viewers of Pakistani television, acting in the series Ghoroa.[5]

However, he remained focused on his dream of becoming a 'film star'. A pioneering filmmaker in Bangladesh, Abdul Jabbar Khan, helped Razzak to join Iqbal Films Limited. Razzak was the assistant to the director Kamal Ahmed in the movie Ujala.

Razzak's major breakthrough in movies was his performance in Salahuddin's Tero Nombor Feku Ostagar Lane. He acted in other movies like Neel Akasher Nichey, Maynamati, Moner Moto Bou, Swaralipi, Osru Diye Likha, Jibon Theke Neya, and Obujh Mon.

Career[edit]

Razzak's first big break in cinema came with his role in Zahir Raihan's Behula (1966).

He has acted in leading roles with many prominent actors, including Anwar Hossain, Bulbul Ahmed, Sohel Rana, Ilias Kanchan, Shuchanda, Shabana, Bobita, Kabori, Sujata, Shabnam and others. He appeared in a number of films opposite actress Shabana.

He went on to make more than 300 appearances in Bengali and Urdu movies. He also directed around sixteen movies.

Razzak is a UNFPA goodwill ambassador.

Personal life[edit]

Razzak is married to Rajlokhhi.[4] Together they have three sons, Bapparaj, Bappi, and Samrat, and one daughter, Moina.[4][6]
