The Team

A ship engine failed which no one could fix. Then they brought in a man with 40 years on the job experience.
He inspected the engine carefully, top to bottom. After looking things over, the guy reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something.
Instantly, the engine lurched into life.
The engine was fixed!
7 Days later the owners got his bill for $10,000.
‘What?!’ the owners said. ‘You hardly did anything. Send us an itemized bill.”
The reply simply said:
Tapping with a hammer $2
Knowing where to tap $9,998
Don’t ever underestimate experience!

During the past year, Rafiq was a Film PR, a special projects Consultant and VP with CINESTAAN FILM COMPANY & MUMBAI MANTRA.

Prior to this, he was the VP – Marketing & Communications at India’s largest and most prestigious studio, YASH RAJ FILMS based in Mumbai. From 2008 to 2015 he handled the Marketing and strategy planning for all their films and gained vast experience spanning over 30 films, including several blockbusters. He was also the company spokesperson.

While Rafiq continued to be the driving force within ZABARADST, his passion a few years ago, was focused on setting up a School of Film & Television for the Indian M&E industry. He joined South East Asia’s largest television content production house, Balaji Telefilms Limited as a consultant Vice President.

Rafiq has played many divergent roles. From teaching Genetics at the St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai, to marketing container traffic in a Shipping company, followed by a move to Advertising where he was an Account Director on some of India’s largest brands.

Currently he is looking at rebooting ZABARDAST as a Film Marketing & PR consultancy while continuing with the core business of Content Creation.
