After impressing fans with his powerful performance in drama serial Razia which aired on Express Entertainment, actor and host Mohib Mirza has clinched the award for best actor for essaying the role of Saleem. Taking to Instagram, Mohib shared his delight through a carousel post, celebrating Razia’s win in eight categories at the first edition of Drama Icon Awards 2023.
Sharing pictures of himself posing with the accolade and his co-stars, the actor added a caption saying, “Razia awarded 8 awards…humbled…my gratitude for the acknowledgement!” Mohib further commended the judges and jury of the awards ceremony which included Marina Khan, Maria Wasri, Rubina Ashraf, Nadia Khan and Mukarram Kaleem.
Addressing his co-stars, the podcast host thanked Mahira Khan and shared a short, heartfelt note for Momal Sheikh who could not make it to the event. “Momal, missed you at the event. Without your amazing performance, Saleem would have been incomplete,” Mohib penned. Aside from Mohib’s Best Actor win, Razia took home trophies for Best Director and Best Miniseries as well.
In October, Mohib took to Instagram to share a glimpse of himself from the show and expressed his thoughts on the importance of challenging societal norms. The actor, who plays Razia’s father Saleem in the show, used this platform to emphasize the need for awareness and change in the existing systems.
“The system must be broken; awareness must be created so that the new generation is not blinded by hypocrisy and patriarchy. All children must have equal opportunities especially when it comes to education,” penned Mohib in the post’s caption. “Thank you for all the feedback on this character, Saleem. Hope his ignorance can shed some light.”
The actor also expressed gratitude to the team behind the show, acknowledging the contributions of individuals such as Mo Ali Shah, Hina Amaan, and Kamran Afridi, along with the production team at Express Entertainment.
Mirza’s portrayal of Saleem in Razia is a deliberate attempt to raise awareness about the inequalities and challenges faced by various segments of society, particularly in the realm of education. The actor hopes that through Saleem’s ignorance portrayed in the show, Razia can motivate a collective effort towards positive change.
