Eventually, in 1993, he relocated to Dhaka.

He has also appeared in several music videos, including Ghuri Tumi Kar Akashe Oro (2012) and Smrity Katha (2017)


During his eighth grade in Madrasa, Marzuk discovered his love for poetry and started writing. He received his first publication in “Janabarta,” a local magazine from Khulna. Afterward, Marzuk began writing freelance for various newspapers and magazines. His first published poem was titled “Shanting Chara Songjog Nishidhwa.” Later on, he wrote three different poetry collections: “Chander Budir Boyosh Jokhon Sholo” (2003), “Bainji Bari Road,” and “Chotto Kothay Tennis Ball.” “Alternative” is one of the most famous poems among his creations.
