Razak Khan’s Personal Life
Ever since he was a child, he had the ambition to have a career in the theatre. Even though he had a limited grasp of English because he attended an Urdu school throughout his formative years, he still enjoyed going to see movies in the English language. Later on, once he had returned home, he and his buddies acted out the scenes from the movie.
In his younger years, he would put on shows for himself in front of the mirror. His first film in the Bollywood industry was called “Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja.” Because it featured performers from his generation, like Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff, he considered this film to be his breakthrough performance.
Razzak has also been busy as an actor on stage, and he has given performances both in India and in other countries. He has a lot of admiration for actors, but as a comedian, Mehmood Ali is the one he looks up to the most.
