The French sensation Abbas Hasan seems to be everywhere lately. From performing at the Times of India Film Awards in Vancouver to being photographed at Elton John’s party in London, the young star seems to be making waves everywhere he sets foot.
Abbas, who recently became an ambassador for the edgy New York luxury watch and lifestyle brand Nooka, set rumours flying when he was snapped in London with the face of L’Oréal, Frieda Pinto (of Slumdog Millionaire fame). Abbas announced that he was beginning casting for new video project.
With the enormous success of his new single “Away” featuring his mentor Rishi Rich, the video directed by Adnan Qazi starring glamorous Lux girl Humaima Malick opposite Abbas made its way around the world. Abbas is said to be planning an even more ambitious project for his next video and the international star said he was looking at a few options for his leading lady. One source said that Abbas was seen telling journalists he said he thought Mahira Khan was beautiful, talented and unique and that he’d love to work with her. Was Abbas revealing his next leading lady to the press?
The star is also releasing the official summer remix for “Away” by Naamless and an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peak of the making of his iconic “Away” video. Abbas said: “The fans loved the video so much that it was only fair to give them more. The process of making videos is so much fun along with the hard work, so I really wanted to share a taste of that with my Habibis.”
Who do you think will star in the French heartthrob’s new video: Frieda Pinto or Mahira Khan?
