The boy wonder could soon be heading for moviedom
Here at Asiana we have a total soft spot for Abbas Hasan. He’s gorgeous, talented, once appeared as one of our Bachelors and in person is so, so down to earth it puts some of our own egos to shame.
Not sure how long this will last though…now that Abbas is moving in A’list circles! The Parisian singer performed at the first ever Times of India Film Awards (TOIFAs) in Vancouver, Canada over the weekend blowing away the guests who included Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan.
Abbas emerged on stage with an explosive performance medley of his hits including a preview of his upcoming single with Rishi Rich entitled Away. Actress Neha Dhupia introduced him as the next big heartthrob, opening the stage to his unique French-Hindi-English sound.
Such was the attention on him that a flurry of press followed him for the rest of the night. Abbas commented: ‘What a crazy night. I’m humbled by the amazing reaction from the industry and the crowd was just awesome!’
The event also featured veteran artists including Sunidhi Chauhan (Band Bajaa Baaraat, Dhoom), Shalmali Kholgade (Cocktail, Race 2, Aiyaa), Mohit Chauhan (Ek Tha Tiger, Barfi!) and Hard Kaur among others.
Since his performance, rumours are circulating about film offers and a deal with Times of India group, to which Abbas says with a cheeky smile: 'If there’s any news you’ll have to wait and find out!'
