Making people laugh is one of the most difficult things in the world. But, comic actor Razak Khan, who passed away on Wednesday, spread smiles every day he lived.
His name might sound a bit unfamiliar, but one look at his face brings back memories of vivid characters from a bouquet of films.
Razak acted in a string of films — from Raja Hindustani to Baadshah to Kya Kool Hain Hum — and tickled audience&’s funny bones in as many as 90 films.
Ninja Chacha, Babu Bisleri, Takkar Pehelwan, Munna Mobile, Babu Karela, Johny Toteywala or Lucky Chikna — the actor had the funniest character names to his credit in his 20-year-long career.
Razak made an entry into Bollywood with the film Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja in 1993 and his last film was Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 in 2016.
Crammed with the best punch lines, he added a certain charm to his characters and was also seen in Comedy Nights Of Kapil as Bua&’s husband for a short duration.
Best known as Manikchand for his role in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Baadshah, he was also a part of films like Hello Brother, Joru Ka Ghulam, Haseena Maan Jayegi, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, Phir Hera Pheri and Partner.
His quirky roles and happy-go-lucky characters will stay etched in the minds of movie buffs forever.
