On Tuesday, Hamza Ali Abbasi, a well-known Pakistani film and television actor, announced that the upcoming drama series “Jaan-e-Jahan” will mark his return to television.
To notify his fans of his return to television, Abbasi posted a preview of a new project on his official Instagram account.
Happy to welcome you to the enthralling world of our next production Jaan-e-Jahan, penned by Rida Bilal and directed by Qasim Ali Mureed, he wrote in his post.
The drama was created by Samina Humayun Saeed and Sana Shahnawaz, and it will air soon on a television near you, according to the author.
The actor has been in a number of well-known dramas in the past, but he announced more than a year ago that he wanted to leave the entertainment industry to focus more on his religion.
Audiences were glued to their seats during the actor’s final performance as Noori Natt in The Legend of Maula Jatt, one of Pakistan’s highest-grossing films of all time. He appeared in Lashari’s masterwork as a supporting actor alongside Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan.
In an exclusive interview with Geo TV, Abbasi highlighted his involvement in The Legend Maula Jatt, which was regarded as the game-changer and saviour of Pakistani cinema. He also discussed the problems he faced when playing the horrible Noori Natt.
The kind of pressure that comes with such projects takes a lot of guts to manage, but you eventually gain the courage to deal with it, Abbasi said.
As for me and Bilal [Lashari], we’ve become accustomed to it, said Abbasi, adding that if one chooses to work on such projects, they must learn to overcome the hurdles that come with it.
