He is currently shooting for "Ferrous", which will release later this year.
"I am playing the main antagonist in the film. Though everyone plays a negative and pivotal character in the film, my character is the driving force behind a few crucial events in 'Ferrous'," Zakir said in a statement.
What made him sign the film?
"It's one of the characters and story-driven films which I have come across in recent times. The way the storyteller narrates the story makes a big difference. As someone has rightly said, it's not about the story, it's about the way it is told. It is an offbeat film and I have always been an admirer of offbeat films," he said.
On how different this role is from his other acts, the "Judwaa 2" actor said: "In recent times, I have done a few comic ones but after a long time, I am playing a serious villain."
