It has been over two weeks since the legendary actor Razzak passed on, but his demise has left behind a void that can never be filled. For some, the grief has sparked the desire to write a biography on the titan. Film director Chhotku Ahmed and many others have reportedly come forward saying they intend to publish the biographies in time for next year's Ekushey Boi Mela.

These initiatives have not been met with favour from the Nayak Raj's family. His younger son Khalid Hossain Shamrat has tried to shut down such endeavours, stating, “We have not given our consent to anyone to write a biography on our father's life. If any writer or publisher prints anything biographical on my father without his family's permission, we will take the matter to court.”

About the possibility of any biographies being authorised by his father, Shamrat said: “While he was alive, a couple of writers sought permission to write about his life, but he told them to send the manuscripts to him for checking before publication. As someone who was with my father at every step of the way, I know for certain that there has been no agreement made for such an undertaking.”
