The Alif star revealed that the first draft of his debut book is complete.

Hamza Ali Abbasi has always had a lot to say — and his Twitter is proof of that — which is why it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that he is writing a book.

The Alif star, who had previously taken to social media to make the exciting announcement that he would be writing a book, revealed recently that the first draft was complete.

"First rough draft of the book done Alhamdulillah. All gratitude is for God only," he said.

Abbasi revealed that the book would be free of charge after eager fans asked the actor about the book.

"I want the book, If you don't make it free for the public, then we'll see," a fan commented jokingly — to which Abbasi replied that it would hopefully be free.

He previously spoke about the book ad said it would "obviously be about God" and was expected to be completed by June 2021.

Abbasi had made headlines in 2020 when he revealed he was stepping back from acting and devoting his life to religion in a 23-minute video titled 'From Atheism to Islam'.

"I look at all my trophies that mattered a lot to me because [they were] symbols of my hard work being rewarded, and I wonder about what these awards will mean after I die. To my children and grandchildren, these will mean nothing, they're just pieces of metal," he had said.

"I will continue to make things though; dramas and films that will be for my country and my religion. I will try to use this medium to further the kind of message that I think needs to be given."
