Abbas is a very impressive martial arts fighter and boxer with huge potential to become the next Bruce Lee.

He is afraid of being next and cannot stay in one place for more than two days.

The Taliban despise the Hazaras like Abbas. Speaking from a flash hole in Kabul, he said: “I want to take me, my two children and my four brothers to the UK.”

Abbas, who posts videos online of his fitness routine including push-ups on two fingers, has not been able to work out since the takeover in August.

It ranks Way Of The Dragon as the best film starring its idol Lee, who died at the age of 32 in 1973.

Abbas’s London-based attorney Mahtab Aziz said he made four martial arts films and landed a role in a Hollywood movie before Covid trapped him.

The lawyer added: “The Taliban are very unpredictable and Abbas could easily be killed.

“He is a very impressive martial arts fighter and boxer with enormous potential to be the next Bruce Lee.”

Pakistan could allow Abbas and his family to settle there in a matter of days.

Mr Aziz added: ‘He wants to come to UK because I’m here and he trusts me.

I think he could take the UK film industry by storm. He is very charismatic.
