BUY-SELL | HELP WANTED | MATRIMONIAL

Zakir Hussain has made a swift transition from theatre to TV and films to web series. After a noteworthy performance in Neil Nitin Mukesh’s ‘Johnny Gaddar’, he landed the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Sarkar’ in 2005. Flashbacking to the time, Zakir relays, “My first big film ‘Sarkar’ earned me a lot of recognition. It was a special role for me. I met Ram Gopal Varma when I got a small role in ‘Ek Haseena Thi’. Back then he didn’t tell me anything about ‘Sarkar’ but just gave me a few tasks pertaining to a specific role. After I did the homework, he was impressed and told me about my part in ‘Sarkar’. It happened just like that!”Zakir Hussain has made a swift transition from theatre to TV and films to web series.
