Talat Hussain in insan aur admi


Talat Hussain (also spelled as Tallat Hussein), is a Pakistani Film/Television/Stage actor. He was born in Delhi, India, His complete name is Talat Hussain Warsi. He is the son of Altaf Hussain Warsi and Shaista Begum. His family migrated to Pakistan in 1947.


It’s said that age is not important unless you are cheese…or an actor. It is the excellence of an actor, and the audience, which keeps you going. And the countdown is still going high for Talath Hussain — an actor par excellence.



Talat Hussain at the pinnacle of his career as we see him today, governing the single room production company ‘Studio 9′, began as a child artist from Radio Pakistan and since then there was no looking back.

Though, never an outstanding student, he traversed the road to success to acquire instant fame. After years of hard work, he finally decided to try this hand in directing and stepped into the realm of production. “I was forced to direct a play by a friend and after that I started my own production company,” goes Talat.

Adding another feather in his cap, this actor turned producer aimed at improving the standard of production which has deteriorated and is certainly not what it had been in 50’s and 60’s. Providing a reason for such an outcome he said, “when you talk about quality of production, you refer to technical facilities, content of a play, the role of a director and other professionals like engineers, editors, lighting people and set designers. If you expect quality from these things then you would have to analyse the personalities of people involved which are determined by social, cultural and intellectual environment. These very people have mediocre minds which leads to weak conceptualisation. In this case, the execution of a particular concept into reality would obviously be of low standard.”


Drama projects reality and is based on various aspects of life. It enhances the insight into various problems and relationships. Illuminating the very fact he said, “during our times, the ruling elite represented the middle class and despite being very conservative in approach, they had a very tolerant attitude and that came into play when the policies were made. The whole scenario was changed when General Zia came into power in 70’s and 80’s. The policies became very orthodox during the Martial Law and though now that orthodoxy is receding, people governing various crucial matters are not very liberal. This very attitude restricted the creative artist and his choices due to which everything is sliced and divided into pigeon holes. It is very difficult to revert back to the era of 60’s where the quality of production is concerned and to some extent the censor policies also have a role to play.”

Talat believes that people themselves are responsible for such harsh censor policies. He says that the younger generation handling production is not aware of their own cultural norms and traditions. They try to imitate what they see on foreign channels which is not in total conformity with our society and so obviously the censor becomes active. Stating his own example he said, “I have directed and produced two serials of 13 and 11 episodes respectively. Out of these only two shots have been censored. I always say that give me a boy and girl. I’ll make them sit 10 feet apart and shoot that scene in such a way that it will be censored. Then I’ll make them sit next to each other and the censor will not touch the scene.” He believes that the way a certain relationship is projected decides whether it should be censored or not. The people exercising power find normal behaviour offensive. “They belong to the rural set up and their social environment is completely opposite to the urban culture,” he said, “we make plays based on urban lines which they might find indecent and so people sitting in the parliament raise hue and cry.”

Apart from the policies, rampant commercialism and lack of workaholic professionals is also responsible for deteriorating quality of production. Earning quick bucks is the ulterior motive of the fresh blood coming in this field


“Our whole society has become commercial now,” he confided, “the set designers are more concerned about money, actors about glamour and directors about making a hit play and when you have to sell everything, the norms and values take a back seat.” Though, he thinks that his generation worked with passion and the priorities of the young budding actors are different. He feels that Yasir Akhtar, Nabeel and Shabbir Jan have what it takes to be good actors placing Shabbir slightly above the rest. “Shabbir has achieved that point where he can be recognised as a mature actor where as the others are still in the making.”


Talat Hussain has worked in five western productions and found them well organised technically competent and very committed to their work. He thoroughly enjoyed working in them. “It was wonderful working with professional actors,” he expressed, reminiscing his experience in the movie Jinnah “despite being so well known, they were very down to earth. Unlike our directors, they respect the actors working for them and do not take them for granted.”

He admits that there aren’t any training grounds for aspiring directors, actors and behind the scene technicians, but still he considers our dramas much better than those of India. Denouncing those who compare both, he vehemently expressed his views, “there are people who say that Indian drama is better than ours. There isn’t any comparison between the two. Their genius is in music. If you look at drama as a genre, the way it exists, it originated from Greece. If Indian drama had energy, vigour and force, it would have over shadowed Greek drama. Indian drama does exist but it is not their genius.”

Being one of the few well read performers, his priorities are to produce the best possible serials. “I am not interested in any kind of competition,” he said while adding, “I don’t want to surpass anyone. I have always tried to produce a product with a 100 per cent attention to make it the best.” He refused to reveal any immediate future plans but is thinking of making a film.


An internationally acclaimed outstanding performer, he aspires to prove his mettle in production as well and give something outstanding and different to the viewers.

Talat Hussain started his career from PTV in 1967. His first television play was Arjumand. In 1972, he moved to England, and joined the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Talat Hussain’s early roles was in Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s It Ain’t Half Hot Mum. His roles in It Ain’t Half Hot Mum was The Club Proprietor (bartender) in Cabaret Time, The Bar Proprietor in Don’t Take the Mickey, The RAF Control Tower Officer in Fight to Jawani along side Jeffrey Holland and Robin Parkinson. He was also worked for BBC Radio in play Crown Coat.


Talat has worked in several foreign films and television drama serials and long plays. He worked in some episodes of Channel Four’s television serial Traffik. In 2006, Talat Hussain won the Amanda Award for the Best Supporting Roll category in the Norwegian film Import-eksport. He also starred in Jinnah witch starred Christopher Lee who played Jinnah but Hussain played a refugee.

Talat married to Rakhshanda in 1972 a professor of University of Karachi. They have three children (two daughters and one son). He is currently working for National Academy of Performing Arts (NAPA) in Karachi.

An Interview with Behroz Sabzwari

There are certain actors for whom the television has played the part of an institution. Behroz Sabzwari is one of them. Having started acting from a very young age, he was groomed and polished by the seasoned actors with whom he worked.


His association with television dates back to November 1967 when his first play, Nana Jan Dada Jan was made. He has fond memories of the drama that was telecast live. “I remember I forgot the dialogues that I was to deliver, however, the senior actors covered it up somehow,” he says with a chuckle. Neither was he scolded for this, nor was his blunder noticed by the audience. In fact being very young, he was always encouraged and supported by the people around him.


“I wasn’t aware of the fact that I can act, but all I can remember is that I could mimic people very well,” he reveals.


On being questioned about why he is mostly seen in the comic roles, Sabzwari says that an actor has to do whatever work he is offered. “However, I did act in plays in which I played a negative role or serious ones such as Khuda ki Basti and Uljhan,” he tries to clarify.


Behroz in Brahim ki Talash


Behroz in Uljhan



The character he played in the serial Mandi is his favourite one as he considers it one of the most satisfying works he has ever done. It gave him the opportunity to portray a person who undergoes various changes as he grows from a young lad to an old man. But this is not all, Kachwa aur Khargosh, Mera Naam Mungoo and Ankahi are also some of his memorable works.


Sabzwari disapproves of the unprofessional attitude of the newcomers in showbiz these days. And what bothers him the most is their unpunctuality.


The credit of Behroz’s most popular performance, in the role of Kabacha in Tanhaiyan, goes to his craze for watching movies. “Shahzad Khalil told me that the character I had to play in the serial was penned by the Haseena Moin,” he recalls. Sabzwari realised that he had to put in his best to stand out in the play which also had other notable artists. The director asked him to watch as many movies starring Peter Sellers as he could get hold of, for the roles the Hollywood actor played in his movies had a lot in common with the character in Tanhaiyan.


Sabzwari says that he is a Marlon Brando, Anthony Hopkins and Robert De Niro buff. He is also appreciative of the acting of Dustin Hoffman and tries to watch all the movies of these actors to observe the finer points of their art.

Among the younger lot, he likes Nicholas Cage. However, the actor confesses that he admires the work done by the senior actresses and has too many favourites to name just one.



The genre of movies that Behroz enjoys the most is romance. “I like love stories and at times thrillers too, it all depends upon my mood,” he opines. The actor clarifies that by romantic movies he doesn’t necessarily mean a-girl-meets-a-boy story, but movies that touch one’s heart and soul, have an emotional feel to it.



Behroz Sabzwari blames the atmosphere of the cinema halls as well as the standards of movies that are made in Pakistan for the audience’s lack of interest in the silver screen. He doesn’t like to watch films in the local cinema halls but whenever he goes abroad, he makes it a point to watch a movie in the cinema.


Behroz in Mirza Ghalib Bunder Road Per


He likes music of all sorts, and is particularly fond of semi-classical. Like many people these days, taking time out to listen to music is difficult for this actor.


“I don’t have much time to listen to music nowadays, but I still cherish songs by Mehdi Hasan, Adnan Sami and Shafqat Amanat Ali,” he reveals. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is a singer whom he admires the most. He likes the late mastero for his versatility as well as his voice and choice of lyrics. However, when it comes to the younger generation of singers, Behroze has little to say about them as he feels that few have come up with any remarkable music to be remembered by. Among the English singers, he admires Shirley Bassey, but over all he is not too passionate about Western music.


Sabzwari laments that he doesn’t have time to read books anymore. The one book that he believes is beyond comparison with any other book on earth is the Holy Quran. Apart from that, he loves to read poetry. That is probably why he has a collection of works by Parveen Shakir and Nasir Kazmi.


He admits openly that he is not much into reading and therefore wouldn’t name books in order to show off.


Favourite Movie: The Godfather

Favourite book: Nasir Kazmi’s Devan


Favourite music: Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Adnan Siddiqui has become television’s leading man without conveying the impression that he takes this mantle seriously. But whether he likes to admit it or not, he has had a huge impact on local television.


With a Hollywood movie under his belt, Adnan is one of the most bankable actors of the television industry, today.


His journey started with his first play ‘Aroosa’ opposite Mishi Khan, which became hugely popular, resulting in him getting many offers, including roles in movies. Among them was a Sajjad Gul banner, ’Siyasat, Rishwat aur Mehangai’, a very ambitious project, with the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahib giving music for a film for the first time in his career, and Madam Noor Jehan and Mohammed Ali Sahib making a comeback into films. It was to be directed by Nazar-ul-Islam and the screenplay was to be written by Asghar Nadeem Syed, who was riding high on the popularity of ‘Chand Grehan’.


As an actor just starting out, it was an excellent opportunity to launch himself in a big way, but Adnan had reservations about the project from the very beginning.



At the time, Adnan was working at Lintas Advertising and was confused as to what he wanted to do with his life: whether acting was his true calling or the world of advertising. He also had issues with changing his name, as he was asked to go by the name of Shehryar, the name of the character he played in ‘Aroosa’. After giving the opening shot, Adnan ran away from the set, earning the nickname ’Bhagora’ in Lollywood. Even now whenever he visits the Lahore film industry, everyone says, “Yeh bhagora aa gya.” The film was then canned and later produced under another name and with another director and writer.
