Rufy Khan is also known by his real name 'Shahnawaz Baqal; he is a model-turned-Bollywood actor. He also debuted as a director for his short film 'Who Dies.' The passion for acting took him to Mumbai from Srinagar (his previous residence). He is born in Kashmir. Khan is well known for films like ' Nautanki Saala' (2013), ' Dhara 302' (2016), 'Kuch Kariye (2010)', so on. He completed Civil Engineering from Aligarh Muslim University. He is trained in gymnastics, and martial arts.

He also featured in several TVCs, and music videos with big stars like Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, etc. His known languages are Hindi, English, and Urdu. Rufy debuted in 2010 with two films, 'Kuch Kariye' on 23 April, and a horror movie 'Bachao Inside Bhoot Hai' on 8 October. He became popular after Rohan Sippy's 'Nautanki Saala' which released on 12 April 2013. He played the role of Lolly, a Gujarati boy in a supporting role besides Ayushmann Khurrana, and Falak Shabir. Next year, his flicks 'The Black Truth,' and 'Neighbors- They are Vampires' hit the screen but did not do well on the box office.

Rufy is a very talented actor, and gymnast. For the film 'Dhara 302,' the producer signed him as the lead actor by just seeing his martial arts, and gymnastics video clip, no auditions were taken. The film is a crime thriller which released on 19th February, 2016 by director Jitendra Singh Naruka. Sufy is one of the few successful actors from Kashmir, and has made his journey worthy when he debuted as a movie director for a short film 'Who dies.' It was a proud moment for all of us when 'Who dies' became India's first short film to be selected to screen at New York Peace International Film Festival.

Rufy Khan (an army man in the short film), Ashraf Nagoo, and Sahil Multy are in the lead role; they have played their characters with immense perfection, and excellence. The movie achieved great appreciation from the viewers, and numerous awards like the Best Director award at the International Film Festival of Delhi, Best Film on current issues at the Jaipur International film festival. It was also selected in top 10 films in Don Bosco Youth Film Festival, later at Flimingo International Short Film Festival, and many more.

We can see Rufy in many television commercials of different brands such as Hero Honda Passion, Ford Ikon Car, Pepsi, Gits Gulab Jamun, and Jalebi, Britania Good Day, Iodex balm, Jeevansathi.com, Bisconni Biscuits, and number of South ads. He appeared in many entertainment videos by T-series like Khat, Pardesia, and a video by Kunal Ganjawala, and a music clip 'Ja Baemana Sunny Saleem.' He struggled to settle in Mumbai, but gifted himself in the form of a milestone actor, and director to the industry. It is a pleasure to see him act on the screen; we hope to see him in more projects.
