From school to university, all educational institutions were set up in Karachi. I have a BBA in Marketing. In 2009 I got a job in a well-known company, so I traveled almost all over the world. And when I left the job in 2015, I was a business development manager. Parents have paid special attention to the education, culture and training of all of us sisters and brothers. Since the home environment is very special, all of us brothers and sisters try our best to fulfill the rights of Allah and His servants.
Hammad: I’ve done it. After completing his studies, he went to Bangkok for a media project, from where he returned to work with his brother in business and other matters. Now I am a full time actor, sometimes I see business.
