Throughout the history of TV programming in Pakistan, there have been many individuals who have displayed their creative skills some way or the other. While a large number of these individuals have continued with their careers, there are many who opted out or took a break from the profession for some reason. Abdul Samad is also one such name who entered into show business but did not pursue a bigger career for some reason.
Samad's entrance into show business was as a drama director. He directed the drama serial 'Lahore Junction', which is counted among the well known drama serials that have been aired on Pakistan Television (PTV). The drama was not only Samad's directorial debut but also his last known work as a TV drama director. The play was written by Imran Ali Safi and produced by Ahmad Talha Khan.
The drama serial starred some of the biggest names in show business right now such as Qavi Khan, late Jameel Fakhri, Azra Aftab, Saba Qamar, Shamil Khan and Sohail Sameer.
