“I WANT to reach out to youngsters and inspire them in some way,” said Datuk Hans Isaac, who is taking a break from the showbiz industry.

He wants to give back to the community by organising a free concert tour for university students.

When met at the launch of Astro’s Raya programmes at Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur recently, he said: “These days, I feel that they complain too much about what’s lacking in their lives, or how living in this generation is difficult.

“They also expect opportunities in life to be handed to them instead of them having to actually do the hard work.

“I want to change their mindset. When life throws you a curveball, you need to stop whining and get to work.”

The tour, set to begin in September, will cover the whole of Malaysia, where a two-hour concert is expected to be held at a major university in each state.

He said each concert would feature a variety of programmes, including a panel of speakers, song performances and comedy sketches, for which Hans had rallied a dozen local celebrities, comprising singers and comedians, to take part.

Hans, 45, said the celebrities would also share their success stories with the undergraduates.

The actor-producer would also give a motivational talk, something he admitted that he had wanted to do for some time now.

Details on the concert dates, the list of celebrities and the universities involved are under wraps, but Hans promised to make an announcement soon.

“This is something new that I would like to work on. I like this kind of projects because it brings positivity to many, and hopefully, it will generate successful individuals.

“I think I’m past the stage in my life where I need to seek popularity through acting,” he said, adding that he had declined several offers, including for Polis Evo 2.

Hans also let on that after working in the entertainment industry for quite sometime, he felt it was time to give something back.

“This concert tour is just my way of showing my thanks,” he said.
