CareerEdit

Early days and breakthrough (2009–17)Edit

Nazim made his entry into Hindi television industry with an unknown role on Star Plus's fantasy based series Shaurya Aur Suhani, created by Sphere Origins, in 2009 and then signed an episodic of Sony Entertainment Television's crime thriller CID in 2010.[11]

His biggest breakthrough came when he bagged his first lead role as Ahem Modi for continuously six years (2010–16) in Star Plus's one of the most popular soap operas, Saath Nibhaana Saathiya opposite Devoleena Bhattacharjee.[12] In 2015, he also debuted into Bollywood with the horror film Plot No. 666.[13] He was a contestant on Box Cricket League too.[14]

In May 2016, Nazim quit Saath Nibhaana Saathiya as he didn't wanted to play a maternal grandfather onscreen.[15] However in August 2016, he returned to the show playing a new character of Ahem's legitimate twin brother Jaggi Modi and remained present in it until its off air in July 2017.[16] Venturing into Punjabi cinema, he appeared in the Punjabi film Big Daddy (2017).[17]

Further works (2017–present)Edit

In August 2018, Nazim reteamed with Bhattacharjee in an episodic of &TV's Laal Ishq.[18] Few days later, he found his first antagonistic role in Colors TV's well performing drama series Udaan Sapnon Ki as Gumaan Singh Rajvanshi before his role ended the very next month.[19] In January 2019, he was seen opposite Sreejita De in another episodic of Laal Ishq.[20]

That same month, Nazim entered Colors TV's Roop - Mard Ka Naya Swaroop as the vengeful Samru Singh Vaghela.[21] In July 2019, he joined the same channel's love-triangle Bahu Begum as the greedy and evil Asgar Akhtar Mirza.[22] He quitted the show in November 2019 amicably.[23]

For the first 31 episodes of Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2—the second season of Saath Nibhaana Saathiya—Nazim reprised his role as Ahem and Jaggi Modi from October to November 2020 thus reuniting with Bhattacharjee.[24]
