After the remarkable success of his last project, Alif, Hamza Ali Abbasi, has started to reconsider his decision to quit the industry.
Previously, Hamza had announced his decision to leave the showbiz industry in November last year, citing religion as a reason behind the move.
However, in a recent video, Hamza appeared to be having a change of heart. To a question, the Jawani Phir Nahi Aani actor said he wants to do more projects like Alif, which will bring people closer to religion.
Addressing fellow Muslims in a video message, Abbasi said he was surprised by the popularity of Alif, as it is on an utterly different topic as compared to what is shown on media these days.
“I had thought Maula Jatt would be my last project, but there were things I had to do. I had decided to dedicate my life to spreading the message of Islam, and Alif is the first step in that because it has the message of Allah.”
The Pyare Afzal star mentioned that he has expertise in film-making and that he will put them to use to create more dramas and films like Alif in the future.
Hamza had an inclination and personal interest towards Alif when he was signing the project back in mid-2018, maybe because it reflected his own journey towards rediscovering Islam.
“Me as Momin in #Alif & the shoot has finally started. It’s not just a drama serial for me but a passion project with a message which is very close to my heart. Coming soon.”

For those who are unaware, drama serial Alif is based on a novel. The story revolves around a spiritual journey of a filmmaker towards rediscovering his roots, and establishing a connection with Allah.
