Kinza Amjad and Rida Amjad, The Amjad Twins, have created a stir on social media with their video content. They talk about their lives and plans in this exclusive interview with KARVAN
1. Tell us about yourself?
KINZA: Being a media sciences graduate I’ve always been interested in performing arts. I’m curious by nature and acting allows me to experience different characters in one lifetime. Most importantly it makes me happy.
RIDA: I recently graduated from SZABIST. My twin and I make comedy videos.
2. How did you come up with the concept of “The Amjad Twins?
KINZA: We had never planned on starting Amjad Twins. It was only after people started appreciating the live performances that we thought of pursuing it seriously.
RIDA: So, we had our live interview with GEO that day and the host of the show asked us about our Facebook page so that people watching the show could follow us. We didn’t have a Facebook page back then hence we decided to make a Facebook page right after the interview. Moreover, there was no creative process behind the name; we went with the first thought that came to our mind.
3. What is the usual creative process you follow when shooting for your videos?
KINZA: They happen at bedtime. That’s when I start getting ideas, I write them down and the next morning I realize they can’t be exactly executed. So out of the 10 ideas I think of I am only able to shoot one of them. Rest of them only look good inside my head.
RIDA: We watch a lot of online content because to create something you have to be aware of what others are creating/latest trends etc. So that’s one thing. Secondly, we take inspiration from our daily lives and try to make comedy videos out of them.
4. What is your life’s most memorable moment?
KINZA: I feel “mime” is my favorite one because the response made us realize we could give online videos a shot.
RIDA: When I learned to drive. I always wanted to drive since I was 3 or 4.
5. Your future plans?
KINZA: I would love to be a social media influencer and at the same time, I want to be that positive force in someone’s life.
RIDA: We are working on our Youtube channel at the moment.
7. What do The Amjad Twins love doing in their spare time?
KINZA: I love making musicallys.
RIDA: Driving, reading, Diy stuff, watching videos
