Actors, directors and producers have expressed their shock and sadness at the death of Nayak Raj Razzak, who passed away on Monday at the age of 76.
Artistes paid tribute to the late Dhallywood legend whose body was kept at BFDC in the morning on Tuesday.
‘Razzak was a co-artiste and a friend of mine. He was a very good actor and perfectionist. I still can’t believe that he has left us forever,’ Sarah Begum Kabori told the press.
Babita, who has acted opposite Razzak in many hit films including Ananta Prem, Agnishikha and Sobai To Bhalobasa Chay, expressed her deep shock at the death of Razzak ‘I never thought that he would leave us suddenly. Just a few days ago, I invited him at my new house in Gulshan. It is hard for me to accept that he is no more,’ told Babita.
‘One does not get the title of Nayak Raz easily. He has made immense contribution to the film scene. Our industry has lost a legend and we have lost a fatherly figure’, said popular Dhallywood actor Shakib Khan.
Noted director-producer Mushfiqur Rahman Gulzar said Razzak was a generous man. ‘Whenever I asked him for a favor he never refused. He stood beside us in every crisis. He will always be missed,’ said Gulzar.
Other Dhallywood artistes also paid their tribute to Razzak.
Noted actor Ferdous said Razzak was a true hero of Dhallywood. ‘He is no more but he will always be the king of our cinema,’ said Ferdous.
Anjona, who appeared opposite Razzak in the iconic song Dhakar Sohor Aisha Amar Asha Phuraise in the film Ashikkhito, said, ‘I will never forget Razzak bhai. He was a very good man, a mentor and an excellent co-artiste,’ said Anjona.
‘We have lost our guardian with the death of Razzak uncle,’ said Apu Biswas.
‘I respected Razzak uncle as my father and he used to see me as his daughter. I have lost a fatherly figure today,’ said Moushumi.
