Abbas is making waves in Tollywood now. The one time romantic hero of Tamil cinema is currently assigned to act in a Telugu movie opposite Tabu directed by Chandra Siddhartha.
Abbas plays the role of a journalist and Tabu plays his wife. Abbas and Tabu had earlier acted in some films, which include Kaadhal Desam and Kandu Kondein in Tamil.
Abbas, once a busy hero in Kollywood now hardly acts in Tamil movies as a hero. He does an occasional cameo with the heroes. At present, he is acting as a second hero in the film Saadhu Mirandal alongwith Prasanna and Kavya Madhavan.
