Abbas Tamil Actor


Looking at the initiation into showbiz of the popular and handsome South Indian actor, ‘Abbas’, one can only marvel at the way he has constantly moved around and has now settled into the position he currently occupies. Starting off from Kolkata, where he was born in 1975, he completed his education from Kolkata itself, and made his first move into modeling while still in school. Moving up the modeling ladder, he soon moved to Mumbai and became contemporaries with well-known names like Sameer Malhotra and Dino Morea. While holidaying in Bangalore during his modeling days, he caught the eye of film director Kathir, who prevailed upon producer Kunjumon to cast him in his film, “Kadhal Desam”. Although the film had other well known actors and actresses, he became a rage, especially with his female fans, after they saw his performance in the super hit song number, “Mustafa Mustafa”. This chartbuster number by A. R. Rahman was the forerunner of such later hits of Bollywood like “Muqabla Muqabla”. After that, there was no looking back for Abbas, and all his initial hesitations about his lack of knowledge of Tamil also flew away. He not only acted in a range of Tamil films after this, but also appeared in Telugu movies, besides hosting music videos in Hindi (encouraged obviously by his “Mustafa” item). He also acted as the host of a number of TV games shows. On the side, he also did modeling roles for well-known products, who were always there for his asking. Although after 2003, he spent a lot of time for his own family business in the South. He did not totally isolate himself to his acting career, but went on to act in a few Hindi movies too, like, “Ansh”, “Zinda Dil” and “Woh Lamhe”. It has indeed been a full circle for one who had dreamt of being an air force pilot in his childhood. Although he has not been able to log that many aeronautical miles, it is certain that he has been able to register quite a good deal of cinematic mileage.
