So when and where did this happen?

In the live session on Bilal Maqsood’s Instagram, which is now titled “Q. Aap drama Kyun Nahi likhtay,” Anwar Maqsood can be seen sitting next to his son and expressing his views in his signature humorous fashion.

Anwar Maqsood expressed that he keeps asking why he does not write dramas anymore upon which he tributes some of the veterans scriptwriters like Ashfaq Ahmed, Bano Qudsia, Munoon Bhai, Intizar Hussain. They are not alive anymore as an excuse for not writing any scripts. After that, he uses puns and wittiness to make fun of the names of Pakistani Dramas of today.

Anwar Maqsood has always been vocal about his views and has opted for satire and humor to express his thoughts. The legendary scriptwriter, whose show Loose talk with the late Moin Akhtar still holds a lot of admiration by fans and industry, has been holding live sessions with his son, Bilal Maqsood, on his Instagram once in a while, where he gets candid and responds to a few questions from the barrage of them asked by his fans all around the world.

Not too long ago, fans were furious upon finding out about the launch of a show with the same pattern as Loose talk that Anwar Maqsood conducted with Yasir Hussain. It forced many fans to assume that Yasir Hussain was a replacement for the Late Moin Akhtar.

People who have still not gotten over the loss of the legendary actor Moin Akhtar expressed their criticism of Yasir Hussain’s casting on a show with a similar format as unbelievable. Many tweets and commentators commented that they felt this would tarnish the legacy of The Loose talk, which still holds a nostalgic place in everyone’s hearts today despite being discontinued many years ago.

Anwar Maqsood, who has been a well-known scriptwriter for his dramas aired on PTV in the 1970s and 1980s, is a very well-respected veteran of our showbiz industry. Even-though he has not been very active as he used to due to his old age, his contributions to the Pakistani showbiz industry have been celebrated on a national level as well. The Government of Pakistan acknowledged his work by awarding him with Pride Of Performance in the year 1994 and Hilal e Imtiaz, which is the second-highest military and civilian honor in 2013 for his valuable contributions to the industry.
