Legendary film star Razzak no more

Abdur Razzak, fondly known as Nayak Raj for his legendary film roles, has died at the age of 77.

He died at Dhaka’s United Hospital on Monday evening, said Mushfikur Rahman, president of the directors association, reports bdnews24.com.

He was suffering from pneumonia and old-age complications, he said.    

The matinee idol of yesteryear had started his career in television before making it to the silver screen in the 1960s.

He received Bangladesh’s highest civilian honour, Independence Award, in 2015 for his role in the cultural arena.

Razzak was brought to the hospital at 5:20pm after suffering a cardiac arrest, said Ujjwal, a customer care representative at United Hospital.

 “We couldn’t get a pulse. The duty doctor tried to revive him. He was declared dead at 6:15pm,” the hospital official said.
