Syed Shaukat Hussain Rizvi (1914-1999) was a pioneer of the Pakistani film industry. He was a film director, producer, and editor, and a supporting actor. Syed Shaukat Hussain Rizvi was born into a reputed Syed family, in the city of Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh in 1914. His first visit to Madan Theatres was courtesy of a close relative when he was only a teenager. He began his career as an assistant projectionist in Calcutta in the early 1930s and gradually learnt enough during this period to earn a job in the editing department of Madan Theatres. Under Ezra Mir, a brilliant Jew technician at Madan Theatres, he learnt the finer points of the profession and was also taught the basics of filmmaking.
