The much-loved actor took to social media and shared the first look of ‘Koel’. His post read, “Wish me Luck for my Directorial Debut.”
Earlier, in an exclusive conversation with Fashion Times Magazine, Yasir shared his thoughts on choosing direction at an early phase of his career. “I ventured into direction as I was getting bad acting offers (chuckles). I am not comfortable in mouthing dialogues on a daily basis like I Love you, Mein Tumhe Talaak Deta Hun, Ammi App Abhi Tak Jaag Rahi Hai, Mai Tumse Nahi Nazia Se Pyar Karta Ho, Tameez Se Baat Karo and the list goes on and on. For me direction is new and fresh; I am simply loving it.”
Hussain shared his direction journey with various BTS moments
For the unversed, Yasir Hussain is known for breathing life into characters. He discovered theater at the age of 16 and has never looked back ever since. A man with an unmistakably distinct and quirky personality, his work too has gained popularity for his unconventionality and eccentricity.
Going by the first look, we are excited and intrigued to know more about it. A release date for ‘Koel’ is still awaited. Produced under the banner of Emax, the drama serial will air on Urduflix and Aaj Entertainment soon.
