Ali Abbas is a versatile actor who is seen performing different roles on screen and has garnered love and praise from the audience for his outstanding roles and acting.
From playing a kind soul as Afaan in Rishtay Biktay Hein to a stubborn male chauvinist Naeem in Meherposh, to a lover as Haroon in Dewangi, the list of Ali’s varying roles goes on.

Talking about his showbiz journey Ali reveled that his father never wanted him to join the showbiz industry. He further added that, “I’m a corporate lawyer, I hold three degrees in law. I did not enter showbiz on accident, it was always my dream to become an actor.”
“The most difficult hurdle for me while joining media industry was my own father who never wanted me to enter this field. I was scolded every time whenever I used to say that I want to join this field. He used to say that there is no money in this work and it is a very risky field, either you rise or fail, but it was my passion so I did it”, added Ali Abbas.
“I started from scratch; I managed to go to the sets frequently where I used to assist a number of directors. It has been the process and experience that I gained before becoming an actor as I worked for almost five years behind the camera. I was doing odd jobs to support myself and I was busy in my studies at that time as well,” said the Shehr e Malaal actor.
Ali Abbas is a true example of a passionate and hard working star, a man who took nothing for granted and tried to carve his path through any or all curve balls thrown at him.
