Zakir HusseinThe talented actor Zakir Hussein has played with RDX in BLACK FRIDAY. "My character is of Nand Kumar Chowghale, chief of Bomb Squad. I had never met him but interacted with his other team members. And from what I was told, I realized that Nand Kumar is a very daring and dedicated officer. Whenever they went to check for bombs, first he would go in the place or the vehicle himself, check for booby traps and then call his other members to diffuse it. So I had to enact such death defying acts in camera which he had done for real. Hats off to him," says this gutsy actor who had just recently played the Indian don Naidu in RISK.

According to Zakir BLACK FRIDAY is not a realistic film, but it is almost real film. "I had the officers from Nand Kumar's team in 1993 squad playing themselves in the film. Anurag took us to actual locations and shot where the bombs didn't go off like the Kapada Market in Dadar, Ghodbandur and other places. It was so good to be part of a social and real film. You feel so humbled at the end of it all, because so many times a character connects with the real person on mental and emotional level and experiences the true intensity of their dedication."

Zakir's next film is Tamil film LEE where he is playing the main villain. "That is also inspired from a real life character. It's more challenging then a pure fictional character because you can not improvise on the getup or body language. You need to adopt what is there to the best of your abilities."
