One such person was veteran director and producer, Mohsin Ali whose undeniable contributions to television in Pakistan created a road map that led towards its progress.
Starting his career at Pakistan Television (PTV) in the year 1967, Mohsin Ali went on to produce some of the most memorable and impressive dramas that have lived in people's memories even after more than four decades. One of his initial drama serials was 'Uncle Urfi', which became a massive hit. From here onwards, he showed his remarkable skills as a director in a number of popular plays.
These include 'Ankahi', 'Kasak', 'Jinnah Se Quaid' and 'Pal Do Pal' besides many other.
