28 Apr – British Pakistani actor Riz Ahmed revealed that he has lost two family members to COVID-19.
This was shared in an interview with British GQ, where the actor talked about how ethnic minorities are the hardest hit during the pandemic.
A recent update to the interview piece includes a WhatsApp message from the actor that states: "Didn't mention it in our interview but wanted to. Since we spoke I have lost two family members to Covid. I just want to believe their deaths and all the others aren't for nothing. We gotta step up to reimagine a better future."
While he didn't specifically name his relatives, he did earlier this month post on Instagram about the passing of his uncle Shakeel.
