Riz Ahmed reveals he quietly got married months ago

Congratulations to the newlywed Riz Ahmed!

During a conversation in Monday’s episode of the “Grounded with Louis Theroux” podcast, Ahmed revealed he recently got married. Ahmed, who is from England, said he is staying in California, he said, because his “wife’s family” is nearby.

Like all of us, Theroux said he didn’t know Ahmed was married and asked how long ago he’d tied the knot. “Not very long, actually,” Ahmed replied.

“I think this is the first time I’ve ever mentioned it in an interview, so congratulations on this incredibly exciting scoop,” Ahmed added, saying, “I mean, I guess I don’t really feel it’s generally that relevant, so I don’t delve into my personal life or my dating history or even family life much.”

Ahmed’s new wife is novelist Fatima Farheen Mirza. The actor shared more details on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday night.

“It’s a weird one, isn’t it? I guess because we live in a social media age if you don’t, like, get on the megaphone about stuff it’s like, it’s a secret, but I never know how much is oversharing,” he said. “Like, I’m into matcha lattes, but that’s just never come up. I’m not a secret matcha latte drinker.”

He also talked about having a wedding ceremony in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Obviously, kept it super intimate, and socially distanced. There was just like, hardly anyone there really,” Ahmed said. “We did it in a backyard, which is nice in lots of ways. And I think the nicest thing about it was you didn’t have 500 aunties hanging around you, pinching your cheeks.”

Ahmed has been virtually promoting his new movie, “Sound of Metal,” in which he plays a heavy metal drummer who begins to lose his hearing.

‘The White Tiger’ presents a searing look at India’s caste system

“The White Tiger” is one of those movies that would likely struggle to claw out much attention without Netflix’s muscle behind it, underscoring the streaming service’s ability to lead people to worthwhile films they might not see — in this case, a sobering adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s award-winning book that dissects India’s caste system.
