When Raza Ahmed trimmed the hair of the Oscar-ridden carpet
Awards season rows are not about winning or losing, they also have some viral moments that win the hearts of viewers.
Something similar happened on the red carpet of Oscar, the most prestigious award in the film world, where in the category of best actor for the film “Sound of Metal”, nominated actor Raz Ahmed trimmed his wife’s hair.
The actor and his wife, Fatima Farheen Mirza, were posing for a photo on the Oscar red carpet when Riz asked photographers to fix Fatima’s hair.
In an interview with the BBC in January 2021, Rizq did not say how or where he met Fatima, but did not name his wife, saying it had nothing to do with his work.
For the first time in the history of the Academy Awards, I was nominated for the lead role in the Muslim and Pakistani-born lead role.
In the film “Sound of Metal”, Raza Ahmed plays the role of a drummer named Reuben Stone who loses his hearing.
Riz’s family from Karachi moved to the UK in the 1970s. The actor’s grandfather Shah Mohammad Suleiman was the first Muslim judge in the British Raj to become the Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court.
