Amjad Islam Amjad Biography

Amjad is an educator and administrator who has held the positions of Director and Director General in various organizations. He is a very successful person. He did what he thought; he is a figure of determination, courage, and action that works so hard and makes the impossible possible. Many of his T.V. dramas have won awards. People have considered drama as Amjad’s main field because only one of his dramas, ‘Waris,’ has been heavy on many dramas, but he does not have a single department, not a single aspect. He is a versatile personality who is the recipient of many prestigious laurels, including Sitara E Imtiaz and Pride of Performance.

Amjad date of Birth

He opened his eyes on August 4, 1944, in Lahore.

Education of Amjad

Amjad completed his early education from Lahore. After graduation from Islamia College, he did Masters in Urdu Literature from P.U. (Punjab University).

Amjad Islam Amjad Family

He married his cousin Firdous and has three children. One daughter is married to comedian Anwar Masood’s son Muhammad Aqib Noor, a chartered accountant in Islamabad. His family was a family of artisans, in which there was no tradition of reading and writing. Amjad adopted the habit of reading because of his father, who had the habit of reading detective novels of Ibn E Saffi and books of Shafique Ur Rehman. 

Career

Initial Career

In his student life, he wanted to be a cricketer and played cricket up to the university level. Literature was a sub-trend, and it was his second choice after cricket. He faced a series of failures in the game of cricket and, on the other hand, got a scholarship for getting higher marks in Urdu in graduation, his full attention turned to poetry and literature instead of cricket. When he came to university, he began to pay serious attention to poetry and literature. He mainly read the old classical poets, on whom he later wrote a book called ‘Naye Puraanay.’

As a Writer

  • After being associated with Radio Pakistan for a few years as a playwright, he wrote several serials for PTV, including ‘Waris’ as well as ‘Dahleez,’ ‘Samandar,’ ‘Raat,’ ‘Waqat’ and Apne Log’ are also included. He got his real fame from the 1979 serial ‘Waris.’ When he wrote the first play, ‘Tooti Kahan Kamand,’ the television failed him. For five years, the television faculty kept failing him, saying, ‘you don’t know how to write dramas do poetry,’ but Amjad kept trying to write dramas. He was sure that he would be able to write dramas. 
  • The script of ‘Tooti Kahan Kamand’ was lost. Later on its theme, he wrote a stage play ‘Ghar Aya Mehmaan,’ which was his first stage play. In 1973, it was announced in the newspapers from Rawalpindi T.V. that the new writers should send their first play. He also sent a play ‘Akhri Khawab.’ Then on March 23, 1975, his first play ‘Khawab Jagtaay Hain’ started from Lahore for which he received his 1st graduate award. Since then, he has received 15 graduate awards in the last 26 years. In poetry and prose, more than forty of his books have been printed.

Column Writing

He has been doing regular column writing for ten to twelve years. In ‘Daily Express,’ he writes a column titled ‘Chashmay Tamasha.’ In 1984, he started writing in the daily Imrooz. When Imrooz closed, he also stopped writing columns. Then in 1990, he began writing in the daily Jang and is still writing.  

Travelogues

He also wrote two travelogues, one of which is the 1984’s travelogue of USA, England, and India ‘Shehar Say Shehar.’ In 1991, when he went to China with a delegation of writers, he wrote the book ‘Resham Resham’ on it.

Films Writing

He wrote five films, two of which were very hit, but he did not like working for the film. In 1997, one of his movies, ‘Jo dar Gia Woh Margya,’ was preceded by ‘Choron Ki Barat,’ which made the Golden Jubilee. He started with the film ‘Qurbani’ starring Nadeem and Shabnam. He wrote the dialogues of this film. Then there were ‘Haq Mehr’ and ‘Nijat.’ He wrote three stage plays, but seeing the condition of the stage, he wrote the last play in 1986.

Educational Services

He worked on the post of  Director of Curriculum Wing in PTB (Punjab Textbook Board) Lahore. In Government Muhammadan Anglo College Lahore, he served as an Assistant Professor. He also gave his services to Urdu Science Board Lhr as Deputy Director and as D.G. in Punjab Arts Council. In the children library complex, he was appointed Project Director.
