Remembering Razzak Khan: Six comedy roles that the actor made himself

While Razzak Khan may not be the first sight that comes to mind when we think of Indian comedians, his performances are etched in our memory.

Razzak almost always performed in a kind of ‘jugal bandi’, together with Johny Lever, Govinda, Salman Khan or Kader Khan.

Razzak Khan started his acting career with the TV show Nukkad. He then tried his luck in Bollywood and made his Hindi film debut with Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja (1993). Razak has starred in more than 100 films in his 23-year career. His last movie was Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 (2016).
