Ahad Raza Mir bags Betty Mitchell Award for Hamlet
LAHORE- Ahad Raza Mir has been one of the top acting talents ever since he made his debut in Pakistan’s entertainment industry a couple of years ago. From Yakeen Ka Safar to his big screen debut, Parwaaz Hai Junoon, followed by ongoing period drama Aangan,  Mir's remarkable acting skills have won many hearts – not only in Pakistan but beyond. He even won the Best Actor trophy for Yakeen Ka Safar at the Lux Style Awards, just last year.

Recently, the Canadian-Pakistani actor was nominated by The Betty Mitchell Awards in the Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Drama category — and he won!

Ahad took to Instagram to share his achievement with his fans:


The Betty Mitchell Awards recognize excellence in Calgary’s Professional Theatre Community. The announcement was also made on their official Twitter handle.

Talking to InStep the actor said, “It feels amazing; the biggest thing is that it’s like pride for the country. It is a regional award; hundreds of shows took place in the entire province there. For me, it is a big deal because I started my career there (Canada) and I have been watching these people get these awards for many years, hoping that it would happen to me too, one day. Therefore, bagging a nomination is a big success, not just for people residing in Pakistan but for Pakistanis abroad.”

Hamlet had also been nominated in the Outstanding Sound Design or Composition category.
