Pakistani actor Hamza Ali Abbasi has cleared that he has not ‘quit acting’ but has taken a long break and he will soon be back on screen.
Replying to a Twitter user, Hamza said: “I haven't quit acting because I don't see it anywhere in Islam as being haraam in itself. I just took a long break from acting to give more time to religion."
He went to confirm that he "will make - and maybe act - in projects made within boundaries Allah has set for us."
