"He’s holding the hot cooking pot without any cloth."
Ahad Raza Mir, who just made his Hollywood debut with Netflix’s Resident Evil, has been the talk of the town because of his cooking skills.
It all started when his videos got leaked from the sets of Resident Evil where he can be seen cooking on the sets and treating his co-stars to some Desi food.
Ahad opted for a chicken karahi and keema and he sure seems like a good cook. Social media users have been loving Ahad Raza Mir’s cooking.
One user wrote: “This is why the Resident Evil director chose him for the role, for his culinary skills.”
Another added: “My expression watching this video was exactly like the man standing at the side.”
A third commented: “He’s holding the hot cooking pot without any cloth. Wow.”
Meanwhile, Ahad Raza Mir has opened up about playing Arjun Batra in the OTT adaptation of the zombie game series Resident Evil.
He has also spoken up about how OTT is helping artists break geographical and conventional boundaries in an interview with Variety.
The show marks the second time Ahad Raza Mir, popularly known for his television roles, will be seen in the OTT realm.
Following the success of his portrayal of Hamlet as part of The Shakespeare Company, Ahad, who’s currently shooting for the second season of BBC’s World on Fire, believes he’s ready to take on greater challenges.
And he plans on being as unconventional with his choices as possible.
Before Resident Evil’s release, the 28-year-old said: “OTT gives you this avenue to explore anything and that’s actually quite freeing for an actor.”
He added: “When you’re working on TV, there are things you can’t do. But the nice thing about OTT is that it gives you this avenue to explore anything.
“And that’s quite liberating for an actor. But the best part about OTT is that it’s global. You can watch it from anywhere.
“That’s why platforms like Netflix are really valuable for everybody.”
“As an actor, it’s exciting for people to see your work but I think it’s also great for the audience to engage with each other from different parts of the world, viewing the same content.”
Ahad Raza Mir, who is guilty of having played all Resident Evil games and watched all the films, describes his character as someone who plays more of a pivotal role in the emotional moments.
The Ehd-e-Wafa actor added: “I really have a great understanding of the lore and the story that Resident Evil presents.
“But what’s really interesting about this show is that it’s taking that lore and turning it on its head, giving it a brand-new presentation.”
