Nassar,” the renowned actor cum director and Kameela Nassar, the film producer cum politician. Abi Mehdhi Hassan is born on 27th September 1997 in Chennai. Right from his childhood, he had developed his interest in acting on seeing his father. So, he decided to get a diploma in acting after completing his schooling. On seeing his enthusiasm, his parents nodded yes. Abi Mehdhi Hassan completed his acting course in Blue Ocean Film and Television Academy (BOFTA).
Abi Hassan has two elder brothers, Luthfudeen Baasha and Noorul Hassan Faisal. Luthfudeen had already played in a couple of films, including “
Saivam” directed by "A L
Vijay." Abi Hassan made his debut in Sun Sun Thatha in 2012 as a child artist. Before making his debut as a lead actor in
Kadaram Kondan alongside
Akshara Haasan, Abi had worked as an assistant to
Atlee Kumar in “Vijay” movie “
Mersal.” Abi Hassan is an ardent fan of Vijay and he is happy to have worked with him in Mersal.
Abi Hassan was not the first choice for Kadaram Kondan. When he got a call from Raaj Kamal Films International of
Kamal Haasan, he was much surprised. The team insisted Abi meet Kamal Haasan after the audition. Kamal told Abi Hassan that he was not on board but had to face some look tests and only if he passes those tests, he will be selected. After getting selected, he attended the workshop sessions conducted by
Pooja Kumar. The movie opportunity was not a cakewalk for Abi, although his dad is a close friend to Kamal and his mom is in Kamal’s Makkal Needhi Maiam party. Abi Hassan had a lot of proud moments, after watching his dad’s film in theaters. He had heard a lot of people saying that Nassar is excellent in his role. Abi wants his dad to hear the same about him and make him proud.
