Hamza Ali Abbasi had announced in November that he's moving away from acting.

However, the Alif actor wants to remind us all that 'moving away' does not mean 'quitting' as we all did end up thinking.

Replying to a Twitter user missing him on screen, he said: " I haven't quit acting because I don't see it anywhere in Islam as being haraam in itself. I just took a long break from acting to give more time to religion."

He went to to confirm that he "will make - and maybe act - in projects made within boundaries Allah has set for us."

For now, Hamza Ali Abbasi will be on the big screen in The Legend of Maula Jatt which releases on Eid-ul-Fitr this year. Good to know that won't be the last time we'll see him.
