In the Theater he has performed in about 70-80 roles, among which in the plays: Chekhov’s “Bear”, Emanuel Robles “Montserrat”, Mrozhek’s “Summer Day”, “The Tomb”, Byhner’s “Death of Danton”. For his skill and artistic values ​​in 1982 he will be awarded the Order “Naim Frashëri” of the First Class.

In cinemas he will have fewer roles played, about 20. His first role in cinematography will be that of Misto in the film “Ne fillim te veres” in 1975, but the role that will make him known to the general public will be that of Martin Kreka, the Party Secretary, in the film “Përballimi” in 1976. This is the role for which he will be honored with the “Special Award” by the Jury of the 2nd Albanian Film Festival.

The performance in the role of clarinetist Halit Berati will show in front of the public that the artistic prudence of Bujar Lako had reached high levels. His masterful and theatrical performance in the movie “General Gramafoni” in two well-known popular pieces will remain in the public mind, such as the folk songs “Këngë për Çerçiz Topullin” and “Qiraxhiu i Grebene”, which impress the public that behind the clarinet is Bujar Lako himself and not the Grand Master, “People’s Artist”, Laver Bariu.
