Entertainment Desk : Eminent actor and one of the most iconic film-personalities of Bangladesh, 'Nayak Raj' Razzak's 2nd death anniversary has been observed on Wednesday. The beloved actor left the mundane world on this day in 2017, at the age of 75. Marking the occasion, the artiste's family arranged a programme which includes offering prayers at the actor's graveyard at Banani and Milad Mahfil. Also, to commemorate and pay homage to the legendary actor, various socio-cultural organisations including Bangladesh Film Artiste and Directors Associations placed floral wreaths on the actor's grave at the Banani. Various organisations arranged programmes including discussion highlighting his remarkable life and works. Several satellite television channels and Bangladesh Television aired his widely-popular movies to pay tribute to this legend of Bengali cinema. Born on January 23, 1942, at Naktala of South Kolkata, Razzak became a very popular actor in both Bangladesh and West Bengal. He started his career as a member of the troupe Rongo Shobha Natya Dal. Later in 1961 he went to Mumbai to get a diploma at the Filmalaya Film Institute. During the Kolkata communal violence known as the infamous Hindu-Muslim riot in 1966, he came to Dhaka as refugee along with his family and thus his life in Dhaka began as a blessing in disguise.
