If we can demean women onscreen, why don't we air strip shows: Hamza Abbasi
Hamza Ali Abbasi is always in news for his opinions and this time he has spoken about his stance on stance on item numbers, politics and religion.
Recently, in an interview with a London-based publication, the actor shared his stance - once again - on item numbers and his upcoming ventures.
"It has a negative impact," Abbasi said, adding, "It is bad from a religious point of view, it's bad even from a secular point of view. You don't demean a woman onscreen and call it art." Comparing item numbers with strip shows, the actor went on, "It's just my opinion but why are strip shows not art? We can show that on our television from let's say 10pm to 11pm. In my head, there's a distinction between art..."
Talking about rumours that he has bought followers, the actor laughed, adding, "If I bought followers, it wouldn't take me seven years to get 3.1 million followers. When you buy followers, that time limit is just for six months for let's say 10 million. If I were to buy followers, I would definitely buy 10 million."
Abbasi is all set to star in Bilal Lashari's film, The Legend of Maula Jatt as the antagonist, Noori Natt. The film also stars Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan, Humaima Malick, Gohar Rasheed, Ali Azmat and others.
