His father Zubair Abbasi was a novelist and drama writer, and so is his aunt - Zuhair Abbasi's sister -, Seema Ghazal. Syed Ali Raza Usama, a director better known for the movie Main Hoon Shahid Afridi and the most expensive drama ever made in Pakistan, Bashar Momin, is Seema's son, thus Shamoon's cousin.[1] His sister Anoushay Abbasi is an actress, while his erstwhile wife, Javeria Abbasi, is a TV personality as well, and their daughter, Anzela Abbasi, is a rising TV actress too.[2] Being married to Anoushay, Ainan Arif, the son of late Pakistan international cricketer Taslim Arif and actress Rubina Arif who had the role of "Micheal Magnet" in the 2013 movie Main Hoon Shahid Afridi, is his brother-in-law.[3]


Abbasi has directed adventure shows such as the Indonesian game show Morven Gold Aventure Bali, Sunsilk 21st Century Woman of Pakistan, Rescue 15 (a show based on a police department), and reality shows including Saaye, which is based on paranormal activities.

He was selected by the viewers in the program Express Acting Challenge, an acting contest in Pakistan where he was a finalist. He is also a strategist for corporate company-based documentaries and in-house videos.[citation needed] He later featured Humayun Saeed in his action series Karoron Ka Admi and in 2013 he appeared in the serial Nanhi. Under the name Masshu, Abbasi became notable in 1999 for his serial Kashish, performing as a comic sweet character.
