Tariq attributes his success to the support of family members. He says, "Finance has a major part to play in the life of a film-maker." Tariq's father played an important role in shaping his destiny.
Tariq has now joined hands with his old timer Rahat Qazmi and together they decided to make film on the turmoil of Jammu and Kashmir which it has suffered during the past two decades.
