Nayak Raj - A Tribute to Razzak
Abdur Razzak was very surprised when Celebrating Life declared that it wants to present him a lifetime achievement award a few years back. He cited two reasons for his amazement. First, given the on-going trend, he naturally assumed that such recognition was given after the demise of a person. Secondly, it somehow took him by surprise that an English newspaper would award him! Anyway, Celebrating Life made a documentary film about him. A gala event, too, was prepared. Unfortunately, Razzak fell ill and had to be taken abroad for treatment. On behalf of him, Faridur Reza Sagor received the award. We were delighted and a little disheartened at the same time: we were honoured to give him recognition, but we were indeed disappointed that Razzak could not receive the award himself. 23 January of this year marked the 75th birthday of this legendary actor. Channel i has celebrated the occasion with a lot of gusto, saluting the living legend. Star Showbiz, too, has grabbed this opportunity to pay due acknowledgement to the movie maestro. And hence, without further ado, we present to you, our tribute to Nayak Raj.
