Best of Luck Nikki

In this series, the actor was seen in season one, episode 2 where he plays the role of Jaanbaz Jaadugar. He wore a blue and red superhero outfit that resembled that of Superman. His dialogue delivery seemed very serious but had humour in it. The series was one of the best TV show for kids that premiered on April 3, 2011.

Fun2shh… Dudes in the 10th Century

In this 20013 film, Azad played the role of one of the guards of the 10th-century palace of Emperor Babushah who stops Vikram (Mohammed Iqbal Khan) and Ajay (Anuj Sawhney) from entering the palace. Since Azad was from the 10th century and Vikram and Ajay from the 21st, he was at first surprised to see the kind of clothes the boys had worn and then took them straight to their Emperor Babushah (Gulshan Grover) who in the 21st century is a Chindi Chor (thief).


This is a 2000 film directed by Dharmesh Darshan that stars Amir Khan and Twinkle Khanna in lead roles. Though not much of him was seen in the film but just working with actor Aamir Khan is a huge achievement.

While speaking of his sudden demise, Asit Kumarr Modi, the creator of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah said, “He was an amazing actor and a very positive person. He truly loved the show and always came for the shoot even if he was not feeling well. He called today morning saying that he is not well and will not be able to come for shoot. And later we got the news that he passed away. We are all too numb to say anything.”
