Imran Abbas is an Urdu poet?
that’s interesting. On Oct 18, actor Imran Abbas was on a late-nite show on
PTV hosted by poet and playwright Wasi Shah. The show is called Raat Gaye
and usually has a man of letters, along with a singer, as guest.
Imran Abbas there took many people by surprise, particularly when they came
to know that the actor tries his hand at Urdu poetry. He had brought pieces
of paper on the programme on which ghazals and nazms by known verse-wielders
and himself were scribbled. He narrated them, albeit in a rush smothering
some of the words, on the show. Some of his own poems were not bad, and had
the metrical balance that’s a prerequisite for poetry.
Imran triggered the debate that actors in Pakistan nowadays don’t like to
read, which is why their efforts lack poignancy while acting (or something
to that effect). Actress Saina Saeed also joined the show by phoning in,
agreeing with Imran Abbas that since some of the stars acquire popularity at
an early stage of their career without having a book-reading background,
they don’t deem it fit to study literature to hone their skills.
Now the query that springs to mind like a Ghalib’s couplet: if Imran
Abbas is into literature and stuff, what has he so far been doing on TV?
Which one of his plays indicated that he’s a literature buff? It’s only when
he appeared alongside Wasi Shah that we came to know the actor’s fondness
Imran Abbas is the hottest Model in Pakistan, and also acts in plays in
pakistan and also in India. He thinks that he has transitioned at the right
time from the Model industry to Drama in acting .
His first shoot of
Khawar Riaz took him to fame and popularity within a short span of period.
