Since the time of its inception, the Pakistani television industry has produced a number of fine actors who have won their audiences with the stellar performances they would give in every drama they would be a part of. One such seasoned and refined actor had been late Mahboob Alam.
Mahboob Alam is remembered by some today as the character of Chaudhry Hashmat which he played in the epic drama serial 'Waris' and immortalized the character as well as the drama in people's memories. His portrayal of the character of an intimidating feudal lord was so natural and striking that it can stir people even to this day.
His other notable performances came in the popular PTV drama serials made in the yesteryears such as 'Shama', 'Andhera Ujala', 'Fishaar' and 'Piyaas'. His most recent performances came on private channel productions among which 'Shayad Ke Bahar Aye', a Hum TV production, has been the most prominent.
