The actor was awarded Best Actor for his lead role in ‘Laal Kabootar’ at the Washington DC South Asian Film Festival.

Directed by Kamal Khan and produced by Harvard graduates Hania and Kamil Chima, the film itself is a crime-thriller documentary inspired by the streets of Karachi; Ahmed plays a hustling taxi driver while the alluring Mansha Pasha plays a strong-headed woman named Aliya Malik.

Ahmed shared the happy news on Instagram this morning writing,
“Truly honoured to have won Best Actor at Washington DC South Asian Film Festival for Laal Kabootar,” accompanied with a picture of the award.

The film has also been submitted for Oscar consideration in the ‘International Feature Film Award’ category for the 92nd Academy Awards.

The Academy will choose the final nominees for all award categories in December 2019, and the list will be announced come January 2020.
