Malik, whose full name is Athar Ul-Haque Malik, is perhaps best known for his roles in James Bond film ‘The Living Daylights’ and for playing the villain opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in True Lies.
He was declared bankrupt in April this year, and Mazars is currently awaiting the imminent transferral of bankruptcy documents from the Insolvency Service’s official receiver. A spokesperson for Mazars confirmed that insolvency practitioner Ann Nilsson will be handling the case.
The spokesperson added: “He was made bankrupt a little while ago and we are awaiting the handover from the official receiver.
“We are reluctant to comment any further until the documents come through, as we don’t really know what the picture will be until that happens and the case has had time to bed in.”
Malik, who lives in Surbiton, Surrey, with his wife and two daughters, has appeared in blockbusters including A Passage to India, The Harem alongside Omar Sharif and Nancy Travis, and played Kuwaiti-born terrorist Ramzi Ahmed Yousef in Path to Paradise, a made-for-TV film about the 1993 world trade centre bombing in New York.
