Yes, the actor has become the first Muslim to get a nomination in the Best Actor category at the Oscars. And what has reaped him this? Well, the answer is, his wonderful performance in Sound of Metal.

In this American drama film, Ahmed has brilliantly portrayed Ruben, a recovering drug addict. He forfeits his hearing and is a punk-metal drummer by profession.

It was a twisted journey for the star and is also a longer and considerate journey for the director Darius Marder who took thirteen years working upon it.

The story of the movie has been penned down by the filmmaker along with Derek Cianfrance. It also casts Olivia Cooke, Paul Raci, Lauren Ridloff and Mathieu Amalric in pivotal roles.

The outstanding venture has already been honored with many critical acclaims. Riz has earlier been nominated at 78th Golden Globe Awards and 27th Screen Actors Guilds Awards for his execution of the character.

Moreover, the actor is also the first Muslim and first Asian to win an Emmy Award for lead actor in a limited series or movie. He was honored for his work in The Night Of.

Though in the year 2017, Mahershala Ali became the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actor Category for Moonlight.

The actor has felt honored for this opportunity and thanked all those who endeavored this to become such a huge feat. He hopes that the story can inspire us.
