The two were recently in Canada for Ahad’s performance in a theatre play of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The Parwaaz Hai Junoon star has garnered much praise and critical acclaim for the performance.

His Aangan co-star Sajal Aly previously expressed her pride by sharing a heartfelt post on Instagram. “Ahad, I have to admit that there’s nobody like you. Playing Hamlet is an accomplishment. The language, the emotions and the impact of the character was so well portrayed,” she said. “Out of all the performances of any actor I’ve ever witnessed, your Hamlet was easily one of the BEST. Please bring the show to Pakistan so that everyone can see the finest actor we have.”
