The success of a good drama serial can be mainly attributed to the director of that drama. It is a widely known fact that if the director of the serial is good, then the drama, acting and the storyline will also turn out to be good. However, even though there are several aspects to finishing a good drama serial, the direction part is the most important. Pakistan has seen some of the finest directors to have come and graced the media industry. Some of these directors have been working with the industry for over a decade, so it is easy to gauge the amount of contribution they have made to the industry. One name in direction that is synonymous with success is that of Shahid Zahoor. Shahid has been one of the most consistent drama directors and has done lots of hit serials in his time as a director. He has been in the field of direction since 1995, so his devotion to the media industry of Pakistan is clear for all to see.
Shahid Zahoor first rose to popularity with the success of the drama serial Chubhan back in 1996, which was directed by him. Aired on PTV, Chubhan was one of the major factors that led to Zahoor's acknowledgement and fame. Drama serial Shikhan gave him further popularity and established him as one of the finest directors of his time. Written by Syed Wasi Shah, the drama was beautifully adapted by Zahoor. Since then, Shahid has come a long way, establishing himself as one of the best directors in his time, with fine directions such as Shaam Dhallay and Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai.
