Bestowed with good looks and a natural flair for acting, Hamza Tariq Jamil started his career as a theatre actor some 10 years ago. His acting abilities led him to TV where he did his first drama serial with Talat Hussain in 2016. It was called ‘Mere Baba Ki Ounchi Haveli’. It was a hit serial and it gave Hamza a solid platform to establish himself as a credible actor. This handsome guy has also appeared in a number of TV commercials and has also done a mini-series for Candi. Hamza was introduced to showbiz by his mother who recognised his potential and persuaded him to join the industry.
Hamza is also a part of Asim Abbasi’s web series ‘Churails’. “Playing opposite to Sarmad Khoosat is just amazing and has opened new avenues for me,” says the thespian. These days Hamza is working on a music video. The interesting part is that it is his own song and his first attempt as a music director. Now, Hamza is all set to appear in movies. We wish him all the best. Let’s see what are the likes and dislikes of this multi-talented actor...
