In fond memory of Nayak Raj Razzak

National Film Award-winning actor Abdur Razzak, fondly known as Nayak Raj Razzak, was one of the most beloved actors of the Bangladeshi film industry. He ruled over the silver screen and many hearts with his memorable performances. Today is the legendary actor’s 79th birth anniversary.

The actor used to spend this day at his Gulshan residence with his grandchildren. However, the celebrations were often graced by many, especially his peers, co-stars, and crew members, who came to wish him on the auspicious occasion.

Minutes would turn into hours as they would get together and commemorate his  journey in films, starting from playing the lead in Zahir Raihan's "Behula". Razzak was part of blockbusters such as  "Rongbaj" (1974), "Ki Je Kori" (1976), "Ashikkhito" (1978), "Boro Bhalo Lok Chhilo" (1982), "Chandranath" (1984) and "Jogajog" (1988), among many others.

The actor had once invited all his friends from the industry, and journalists to his house to celebrate his birthday. After the cake was cut, the star walked from table to table, serving his guests personally. He wished to live with the love of his fans by his side.

His birthday is still celebrated by his wife, children, and grandchildren at his residence. "We look back on our moments with him, and his grandchildren cut his birthday cake," shares Razzak's son Shomrat. "We miss him every minute. His absence will always be there, but he will live on through his work."

"We used to celebrate this day in a very grand way," shares noted actor and Member of Parliament Farooque. "Nayak Raj Razzak is a legend who cannot be forgotten. I cherish my friendship with him."

Razzak's onscreen chemistry with renowned actor Farida Akhtar Poppy, known by her stage name Babita, gifted their fans with timeless movies. "I have always considered him family, and I grieve his death even today," shares Babita. "I am especially emotional on his birthday, and miss him dearly."
