Zakir Khan was born and raised in Indore, our city of food. He comes from a modest foundation and has a sharp eye for humour in everyday life. His trademark is the capacity to crack everybody on subjects that generally go unrecognised by others. What recognises him from others is the craft of narrating a story.

His presentation on the AIB Diwas is thought to be one of the legendary execution of the art of standup comedy by any Indian Stand-up comedian. That evening transformed him, and he has never turned around from that point forward. He then created a masterpiece, "On Air with AIB." which is loved worldwide to date.
