Theatre artists are very fine performers; they are trained brilliantly from the very beginning. Theatre has given a lot to the Pakistani entertainment industry. Over the years, we have had a lot of great talented actors who have established themselves in our film and TV industry and earned fame as well. Hamzah Tariq Jamil is one such theater artist who with his effort and uphill struggle made it to our TV screens. Hamzah’s acting abilities on TV were first seen in 2016 when he debuted with drama serial, Mere Baba Ki Ounchi Haveli. His skills and determination soon bagged him a lead role in a romantic drama, Meri Mishaal. These days, Hamzah can be seen in the critically acclaimed web series, Churails. He recently also starred in a short film, Bridge, alongside Mashal Khan. The talented rising star catches up with MAG in a quick and fun rapid fire. Here are 60 seconds from his life. Excerpts:
