Working with my teenage-days hero Late Waheed Murad’s daughter Aliya Murad was an honor. This was Aliya’s first and the last commercial as she got married soon after it’s broadcast on PTV in 1980. The product was Moonlite Blankets and my catchphrase was “Chunda ki Chandni ko dekho hum nay rung diya”. The jingle was sung by Shireen and music was jointly composed by Ustad Tajammul Hussain and myself. The 35mm film footage is very scratchy and the sound noisy but I was able to scan and clean up a few frames. Isn’t this an awesome shot? Thanks Aliya!!!

Tariq Directing Bonanza Shalwar Suit commercial at the Brooklyn Promenade, Brooklyn in 1982. The views of New York skyline from there used to look stunning. Now that the awesome twin towers are gone, the New York skyline would never look the same…and it hurts.
