If you haven’t been living under a rock, this past year, you will be familiar with the national, and international, sensation that is “Yakeen Ka Safar” and more precisely, Ahad Raza Mir. He proved his mettle as an actor with his first show as a lead actor
And no surprises there, he won the award for the Best TV Actor (Male) for his performance as Dr Asfandyar Usman Khan
Ahad received the award for the Best TV Actor for his work in the phenomenally successful “Yakeen Ka Safar”. He was nominated along with some of the biggest names in the industry, the likes of Adnan Siddiqui and Noman Ejaz.
When a very nervous Ahad walked up on stage, the acceptance speech that followed was nothing short of adorable
While he thanked his parents, his younger brother, Adnan, and the director, Shehzad Kashmiri and the entire HUM family for believing in him and supporting him throughout
He also thanked Sajal for being an amazing actor to work with
What struck us the most was when he thanked his grandfather
While accepting the award, he said that as much as the award belongs to him, it also belongs to his dada, the legendary Raza Mir sahab. He was the first person from his family to set foot in the industry. Had he not done so, Ahad’s father, the veteran actor and industry giant, Asif Raza Mir, wouldn’t have taken up acting, either. And following him, Ahad would never have become an actor. While talking to MangoBaaz, Ahad said that “we should remember the people that came before us and built this industry….whom we so easily forget”. These are the words we need to take with us as we move forward with our growing entertainment industry.
It’s enlightening when an actor comes up on stage to receive an award and is absolutely REAL about how he’s feeling
A man who gives credit where it’s due. Ahad Raza Mir is one such individual who won countless hearts with his acceptance speech. Another video that surfaced in the #MeinBhi only reinforces the way Ahad was on stage and was speaking his heart out, and actually letting his emotions out. One where he spoke up about how men should be taught how to be expressive and be told that it’s okay to cry and feel.
