Pakistani actor Ahad Raza Mir is receiving flak for a bold kissing scene in the new Netflix series Resident Evil. Mir, in one of the scenes doing rounds on social media, he is seen kissing Jade Wesker, the character played by Ella Balinska.
Netizens are reacting to the kissing scene performed by Ahad Raza Mir. Several Twitter users are of the view that being a Pakistani actor he should not have performed that kissing scene. Others said that there is nothing bad in it as his character demanded. Hence, doing such scenes does not represent Pakistan.
A group of users commented that there would have been an intense reaction if any Pakistani actress had done such a scene. Some quoted the example of his ex-wife Sajal Aly who is also an A-list actress.
This group argued that Ahad Raza Mir should be bashed the same way female actress Mawra Hocane was slammed for bold scenes in the Bollywood movie. Some argued that as per the rumors Sajal Aly was rumored to be divorced due to intimate scenes in a TV serial.
A nation with one of the highest porn searches got triggered by Ahad Raza Mir kissing in a TV Show.

Ahad Raza Mir kisses in a movie and Pakistanis seem to be losing their minds. Its just a kiss, your parents do it too. In this country everything is such a taboo that you all grew up without seeing normal displays of affection and now even a small act of love triggers you.

A few days ago, netizens have been cheering the cast of Ahad Raza Mir in the Netflix series. They were excited to see the actor appearing in the Netflix series. However, the tides soon turned against the actor following a steamy scene in the series. Ahad Raza Mir is playing the character of Arjun Batra in the series. Scenes between Mir and his onscreen daughter also won hearts on the screen.
I love ahad raza mir but it’s absolutely INSANE to me how he’s getting little to no hate for his “bold” scenes in resident evil but Mawra hocane got so much shit (and still does) for doing sanam Teri kasam. Fucking hypocrisy.
