Scene of the Week: Razak Khan as Faiyaz Takkar from Akhiyon Se Goli Maare

Found out that Razak Khan died. RIP. Though he was mostly typecast in Tapoori roles there was something charming and funny about him. Remember watching him as the sidekick of Farooq Sheikh in the TV serial Chamatkaar which used to come on Sony TV in the 90s.

Check out this hilarious scene of Razak Khan as Faiyaz Takkar from Akhiyon Se Goli Maare as a tribute. Thanks to @Ritz for this scene.
