During the 1990s, a music program called 'VJ' became immensely popular among the youngsters. What set 'VJ' apart from the rest of the musical countdown programs was the team that created spoof skits and entertained the audiences through their performances. Among these talented individuals, Jawad Bashir was the most well known and versatile artist whose work is appreciated even to this day.
Jawad and his group of college friends were introduced to TV by renowned director Raheel Rao. While working on 'VJ', the friends decided to form a band by the name of 'Doctor Aur Billa', producing a number of funky songs like 'No Love', 'Yes Love' and 'Jeenay Do'. Directing the videos of these songs by himself, Jawad found himself falling in love with direction. He set a benchmark for sitcoms with his plays 'Teen Bata Teen', 'Wrong Numbers', 'Kollege Jeans', 'Motor Chalay Pum Pum', 'Shashlik', 'Ankh Macholi' and 'Darra Rerra Rum'.
These days Jawad's directorial skills can be seen in a number of television commercials. He has also made several shows for private channels like 'Dil Ki Lagi' (ATV), 'Kabhi Na Kabhi' (Hum TV) and 'Cafe Chill' (Geo TV). He has also directed a short film by the name of 'Insan Aur Shaitan', which was screened at the Kara Film Festival.
