Pakistani-British actor Riz Ahmed was previously in Lahore to attend the Lahore Literary Festival (LLF). His panel was held with Mohsin Hamid, who he has previously worked with on The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
After spending a few days in Lahore with his former co-star Meesha Shafi, Ahmed made his way to the metropolitan city of Karachi.
According to his Instagram and Twitter posts, the actor will be posting photos of his time in the country that he mentioned he visited after 13 years.
He also posted a picture of the room number he was staying in, referencing his Post 9/11 Blues video.
At his panel at LLF, the Star Wars actor also shared that visiting Pakistan was like visiting an ex, adding that a lot has changed since his last visit. Leaving a bit of himself behind, Ahmed also rapped at the end of his session.
Ahmed's assistant confirmed that the 35-year-old actor was in Karachi after LLF but has now left the country. However, we are still eagerly waiting for the photos that he plans to post in the next few days. Considering the amount of talent Ahmed has, these will be quite entertaining as well.
