A change in career can be scary. Imagine having to switch to another field after doing something for so long and it’s basically all you’ve ever known your whole life. Not everyone is willing to take that leap. It’s not necessarily they lack courage but many only have one shot at it.
Take our former prime minister for example. He had it all once upon a time; fame, money, power but all that changed basically overnight but it looks like he’s setting his foot in the world of acting. Najib Razak recently posted on his Facebook sharing his sudden “career change”. Here’s the story:
Former Malaysian PM Najib Razak recently posted several photos on his official Facebook page dressing up as someone. The 68-year-old is apparently making his acting debut in an upcoming episode of the RTM drama “Tunjang” playing the role as, wait for it….his father, Tun Razak, the second Malaysian prime minister.
“I’m….switching career. Director said I didn’t need to audition. Filming was great. I was in the drama “Tunjang” today,” the politician captioned in the first post. The former prime minister was in full old-school costume (and a wig) playing the role of Tun Razak during the post-Merdeka era.
In another post, Najib can be seen riding in the back seat of a classic Honda Civic car for the episode. After filming was done, the former Minister of Finance took a group photo with the other actors and it looked like he had a fun day. His supporters commented on his posts saying they’re looking forward to seeing him in the drama but some netizens commented basically saying they weren’t having it.
So, will Najib be dabbling into acting full time now? Probably not. As far as we know, this is just a cameo appearance for the drama series. We’re not sure if being an actor is the right career choice for the politician if he were to pursue it but who are we to stop him? What do you guys think?
