Answering a question about why he is not writing for TV anymore, Anwar Maqsood said, ”I wrote for TV for 55 years. I have written to you people for 55 years. Someone once asked me why don’t I write for television? I said Ashfaq Sahab is not writing, Bano Qudsia is not writing, Bajia is not writing, Munno Bhai is not writing, Intezar Hussain is not writing. The person responded that these all have died. I said that they all have taken drama along with them.”

”Now, there is no drama. Now, I just analyze the names of dramas and commercials being aired on television. On Thursday night at 8:30 pm Tum Meray Paas ho, on Thursday night at 11 pm Mujhe Beta Chahiye, at 12 Namumkin, at 12:30 pm Cheekh, double episodes. Now, after seeing such names, how can I write?”, he added.
