After his hard-hitting performance as a villain in "Sarkar", Zakir Hussain will be once again be seen in a negative role in Tanveer Khan's "Deadline-Sirf 24 Ghante".

In the film, Zakir plays the role of a villain who shows a lot of sensitivity to the protagonists. A sensitive villain? "Why not! People with grey shades to their characters also have a humane side to them. In the film, I am bad but not as ugly. Most of my screen time is spent with the abducted child Princey and she never hates me," he is quoted as saying by Bollywood Trade.

Zakir currently has an interesting line-up of films in which he plays diverse characters, most of them grey. There's Ram Gopal Varma's "Darwaza Bandh Rakho", "Shiva", "Shabari" and "Darna Zaroori Hai", Jhamu Sugandh's "Johny Gaddar" and "He-The Only Man" directed by Lalit Marathe and Padmaylaya Films' "Fool N Final".

As if that's not enough, the talented theatre artist is also dabbling in television roles on the small screen. Says Zakir: "I never see the size of the screen when I accept a character. Whether it's the big screen or the small screen, I go by my role and its sensitivity," he says.
