Hamza Ali Abbasi Made A Powerful Statement And Not Just With His Dapper Shalwar Kurta!

Hamza Ali Abbasi is one celeb that Pakistan cannot decide whether to love or not. At times he opens his mouth and we fear he’s flirting on the edge of extremism. At other times he speaks and we can’t stop gushing about what he said!

Thankfully, at the Lux Style Awards 2018, Hamza unleashed his latter side. He made a powerful statement calling upon fellow artists to explore their responsibilities beyond entertainment.

The bit that we loved the most – ironically, since we’re an English publication ourselves – was where Abbasi said that the proceedings at the award shows should be in Urdu. YES! More than 70 percent of Pakistanis do not understand English and we really need to make entertainment awards more inclusive rather than elitist.
