Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi is currently riding high on the success of his Pakistani feature film, The Legend Of Maula Jatt, which has garnered over 150 crores globally. During the promotions of this Bilal Lashari directorial, Hamza exclusively chatted with The Current, during which he responded to Ayeza Khan’s cheeky comment about him being a difficult co-star.

Three years back, Ayeza stated on the YouTube show, Momina’s Mixed Plate that it wasn’t easy to work with Hamza on their blockbuster drama, Pyarey Afzal. The Laapata diva mentioned, “Yes I have worked with Hamza but it’s really difficult to work with him because he laughs a lot, especially whenever there is a serious scene with him which requires certain emotions, he keeps on laughing.”

Khan mentioned that Man Mayal star’s non-serious conduct makes it difficult for her to perform seriously in a scene.

She added, “I once asked him kya kar rahay ho? Tum nahi dogay mujhe acting cues, tum bilkul na dena mujhe, Nadeem Bhai (director) dengien cues. So Nadeem Baig used to give me my acting cues and hence I started referring to him as Pyarey Nadeem and that’s how I did the entire serial.

Hamza and Ayeza later reunited for a television commercial.

Hamza’s Response

On being asked to respond to Ayeza’s light-hearted statement by the host Uzair Anwer, Hamza commented, “I stay my true self on the sets. Even when we have to shoot serious or angry scenes, I am not the sort of an actor who would want to get into that exact mindset.” I cannot just continuously sit in a serious manner because I like to have fun and make other people have fun as well.”

He added, “In fact, if the scene is too intense, I act differently to experience a contrast while filming those sequences. It works for me.”

When asked if Ayeza Khan or Hania Aamir are his favourite co-stars to date, Hamza confessed that while he has had a good time with all his leading ladies, his best female co-star so far has been Ayesha Khan.
