Personal life[edit]

Waseem Abbas is the son of singer and actor Inayat Hussain Bhatti. His paternal uncle Kaifee (full name Kifayat Hussain Bhatti) was also an actor and director.

He has three sisters and an elder brother, Nadeem Abbas Bhatti, who worked as an actor before switching to film production and distribution.[2]

He has four children from his first marriage. He divorced his wife and marry fellow actress Saba Hameed. His son from his first marriage, Ali Abbas is an actor as well.[3]

Through one of his sisters, his nephew is actor and singer Aagha Ali.[4]


His father, Inayat Hussain Bhatti, was against his decision to join the entertainment industry, and when he tried his luck on radio he was rejected. He then became an assistant director for a stage play, where he would also act, before getting his TV break on the PTV drama Ek Haqeeqat Ek Fasana in 1978.[5]
