Riz Ahmed is ringing bells in Oscar as the first-ever Muslim best actor nominee. Ahmed stays unbowed and accomplished the feat with his powerful performance in Amazon’s Sound of Metal, which has been nominated for six Academy Awards in 2021 — best picture, best actor, best-supporting actor for Paul Raci, best original screenplay, best editing, and best sound. Just Waoo! But here we are impressed by his vanquishing act of compassion with his wife. Fans spotted the Mogul Mowgli actor fixing her hair on the Oscars red carpet and winning hearts. Riz Ahmed Fixing his Wife’s Hair on Red Carpet is an Award-Winning Act.

For the longest time, people had no clue of Riz Ahmed’s marital status. However, now that the secret is out, everyone has been waiting for a whiff of his wife. At the 93rd Academy Awards, where Ahmed was a contestant for the best actor award for Sound of Metal, (and holding ground as the Oscar’s first Muslim best actor nominee,) the actor hung back for a second to fix his wife Fatima Farheen Mirza’s hair. What a gesture!
Fans Went Gaga for His Cute Action

once again thinking about how actor Riz Ahmed met author Fatima Farheen Mirza in a coffeeshop where they both went to write and now they’re married and somehow there aren’t 10000 movie adaptations about this

Ahmed made a joke while posing on the red carpet
“I’m the official groomer,”
In an episode of the podcast Grounded with Louis Theroux, the 38-year-old actor had revealed that he tied the knot. Seemingly Ahmed wants to keep his personal love life aside away from clicks.
“I mean, I guess I don’t feel it’s generally that relevant, so I don’t delve into my personal life or my dating history or even family life much.”
Riz Ahmed may have lost the award to Anthony Hopkins but he surely won all of our hearts! The way he showed affection for his wife in public is talk of the town. Viewers loved the sweet moment and took the opportunity to appreciate him all over social media.
