On World Television Day, actor Adnan Siddiqui reflects on some of his most memorable small-screen roles.
On Monday, Adnan Siddiqui took to Instagram to reminisce on his early days as an actor with PTV and to discuss the importance of the tiny screen in his career.
He wrote, “Transitioning from modelling to acting, the world of small screen welcomed me with open arms rare for a greenhorn. That was the time of PTV. Only one channel to choose from, it meant top-notch quality: actors, writers, directors, screenplays….The 70s and 80s weren’t as technologically advanced and what the industry lacked here, it more than made up in the premium quality dramas it churned out. Television was informative, educative and entertaining—all rolled into one”
He added, “Three decades of being wedded to the small screen, I won’t have it any other way. It made me who I am. On World Television Day, have dug out these pictures from my early days. Can you name the dramas?”
Fans were quick to recognize his stills from his stunning performance in the drama serial Uroosa among the three photographs uploaded by the Mere Paas Tum Ho star.
