Naimal Khawar wants you to stop assuming Hamza Ali Abbasi made her quit acting

Naimal Khawar wants you to stop assuming Hamza Ali Abbasi made her quit acting

"Don't spread false news to sensationalise someone's special day," says the now former actor.

Naimal Khawar got married to Hamza Ali Abbasi and everyone's been all over it.

From their sweet and simple-looking nikkah to their wholesome valima, the event has been the talk of the town, with all of us talking about the decor, the wardrobe and how adorable it is that the couple held hands throughout.

But as a post from Naimal where she announced her departure from acting went viral, another debate struck.

Said Naimal in her post, "I’m wrapping up shooting for my first and last drama serial, where I worked with some incredible people and had a great learning experience. However, I would now like to bid farewell to acting. I will not be pursuing it as a career because I feel that I cannot balance it with my art, which will always remain my first priority and passion."

"You will not be seeing me on the screen anymore but you will be seeing a lot more of my paintings and hopefully, exhibitions. I would like to thank all the wonderful people I met on this short endeavour. It’s been lovely."

While Naimal made it clear that she left acting for her art, the post went viral during her wedding with many questioning whether it was actually her marriage to Hamza Ali Abbasi that led to this decision.

After the wedding festivities wrapped up, Naimal took to Twitter to not just call out these rumours but also to remind everyone of how old her original post was.

"I am a consenting adult woman capable of making my own decisions and this narrative of 'saving me' is nothing short of demeaning my right to choose for myself," said Naimal in her post.

She went on to clarify, "I left acting nine months ago and the decision was entirely mine. Don't spread false news to sensationalise someone's special day."

He must have forced that decision. Abbasi is made of the material like that.

This is good. It's like our whole country is always busy on internet picking out fights where there's none required. It's like a hubris and people are getting worked up with non-issues. Acting or no acting, it's their personal issue.

There is no way to exit the media. We expect you to come with an excuse after a certain period of time, specially when you feel deprived of opportunity for marrying an actor. Its so obvious that his liberty to work in the industry will raise questions in your mind and you keep thinking over your decision again and again. This is media where you are habitual to people following you and praising you for your art. You know your art and this is only a typical Pakistani sentimental decision.

@M. Saeed : as usual you haven't the article but jumped into the comments section. Please spare some minutes and read the article before commenting on. This will be beneficial for you and for rest of us as well.

@M. Saeed. Unless you have evidence and know someone who was married to Hamza told you this, your comment is misleading.

Of course we will miss your acting and your innocence yet we would like to request that both of you come together in one drama only. I am sure pyare Afzal will take note of our request. Thanks.

Nobody is sensationalizing anything. I don't know why these 'celebrities' keep posting to provide their perspectives on things that no one really cares about.
