Hamza Firdous, albeit two dramas old, is gaining more popularity with every passing day. His character of Tek Chand, in Adnan Siddiqui's period drama Ghughi is being immensely appreciated. While Hamza sought to play a very crazy, negative role in his debut drama O Rangreza, his choice of playing a very settled Tek Chand in Ghughi, proves the actor's versatility and his choice of opting for diverse characters.
Hamza Firdous, while recently busy shooting for his next, a 7th Sky Entertainment production, Maria Binte Abdullah, alongside newcomer Kinza Hashmi, is focused on accomplishing all sorts of feat that come his way. Hamza's quest for his passion, that he defines acting as, takes him across continents this time. The actor, is presently in Ireland, completing work for a commercial shoot for "Simon Community Cork" in Dublin.
The ad has been directed by Donogh MacCarthy-Morrogh and produced by Una Shinners for Stormlight productions Ireland and focuses on helping the homeless in Ireland. Simon Community Corks works to raise awareness about their lives and the housing crisis in Dublin and with the commercial, the community aims to bring the plight of the homeless to a national audience, getting help on a bigger scale.
Alongside Hamza, the commercial also stars Irish actor Colin Kelleher. Talking to HIP, Hamza shared how exciting it was to work for an Irish commercial, back in the country, he loves second to Pakistan.
"I was approached by Simon Community Corks for the commercial as they wanted to project a more collaborative picture of Asians working along side the Irish to eradicate this issue," says Hamza.
Talking about his experience of shooting a commercial in Ireland, Hamza puts in, "Great experience will be an understatement. I love working and collaborating with new talented people but getting an opportunity to work alongside Irish actors and technicians was more of a fun then work. You know the Irish!"
Its a moment of pride when actors with Pakistani roots actually go international and put forward a positive and progressive image of the country. For Hamza, its nothing short of pride to be able to portray a helpful image of a Pakistani in Ireland.
Hamza Firdous is a versatile actor and he's proven it time and again with his performances. Even though the actor is just two serials old in Pakistan, Hamza has to his credit various characters including Hamlet to an Afghani refugee from his credentials in Ireland.
Back at home, Hamza is gearing up for his next major serial, a 7th Sky Entertainment's production, Maria Binte Abdullah, where he plays the male lead. The actor has taken a route of self discovery and making a name for himself with his own efforts. And by the looks of it, he's truly succeeding.
Here's wishing Hamza, best of luck for all his upcoming projects (of which there are many), locally and internationally as well.
