Hamza Ali Abbasi banks on two new projects
Hamza Ali Abbasi was last seen in 2016’s hit drama serial Mann Mayal.
Though he has always been picky about work, lately he has cut down on his acting assignments even further — he is due on just two feature films, and no TV shows — to focus on his political talk show.
The first of the films to come out is Parwaz Hai Junoon (Flight is a Passion), an ISPR and Hum TV presentation. Based on the lives of air force cadets and how they evolve as human beings once they are commissioned, the film is said to be a tribute to the Pakistan Air Force. It is penned by Farhat Ishtiaq (who previously collaborated with Hum TV for Mahira Khan-starrer Bin Roye) and directed by Haseeb Hassan, and also features Ahad Raza Mir, Shaz Khan, and Hania Aamir in major roles.
The makers recently released a series of character posters from the film, beginning with Abbasi, who looks in top form sporting the forces’ uniform. The film is slated for an Eid Al Fitr 2018 release (around June 14).
