Pakistan’s heartthrob, Ahad Raza Mir’s most awaited Netflix debut with Resident Evil has landed the actor in hot waters. Mir who was featured as Arjun Batra, an Indian refugee of the global T-virus pandemic, can be seen in a seemingly bold avatar for Pakistani audience. Netizens have criticized the actor for forgetting his roots and could not help but compare the fate of his female counterparts for opting to do such scenes.
However, some of his fans jumped to the rescue, justifying his scenes as professional requirements. From raving about his chemistry with Ella Balinska (who plays Jade) to posting their favourite scenes and telling the Ehd-e-Wafa actor he killed it, Pakistani Twitter is filled with tweets of pure glee.
With the actor making global headlines of late, he has now been added to the cast of yet another foreign project. World on Fire Season 2 will see the actor featuring in a supporting role, alongside original cast members including Lesley Manville as Robina, Jonah Hauer-King as Harry, Julia Brown as Lois, and Zofia Wichlacz as Kasia.
