Acting is something that runs in Ahad Raza Mir’s gene, and how could one question that as Asif Raza Mir (his father) and Raza Mir (his grandfather) have given enough to the Pakistani entertainment. Though Ahad is new to the scenes, his father’s been there for 40 years and that’s made enough of him to be regarded as a legend in the industry. Same goes for Ahad’s grandfather, who was a famous movie director and also best known as cinematographer for Pakistan entertainment industry’s first-ever film Teri Yaad (1948).
Ahad Raza Mir carrying on the legacy and living it up to the hype has got the star status in the industry within no time, and it has nothing to do with his father or grandfather’s stature in the industry. The heartthrob is an epitome of ‘DIY’ (Do It Yourself) as he has climbed the success stairs on his own without any support. Even though Ahad Raza Mir’s first outing in the entertainment world was back in 2010 for Khamoshyan, which was helmed by his father’s production company. That wasn’t a formal start for 17-years-old Ahad and that’s when he got his major in drama from Canada and honed his skills at the theatre too.
Ahad Raza Mir is really PUNCTUAL – And we really mean it!
The stardom or celebrity status even not make you arrogant but take away the punctuality from you. But that’s not the case with Ahad as even the grandeur and protocol on his hand; he’s opted to stay grounded. And one of the essences he has learned out of his time in Canada is to stay punctual or even 10-15 minutes before the allotted time. He has multiple times in interviews told about his routine of reaching sets before the given time. Moreover, he also sheds light on prevailing unprofessionalism in the industry, which he believes to end very sooner. So, the bottom line is be on time, else you’d get no time.
