He revealed that his mother was actually scared of him when she saw his performance which meant he was doing something right.
Before his debut for the silver screen, Mir was a theatre actor and got back to his roots with the portrayal of Hamlet in the Shakespearean play, performed between March 20 to April 13 in Canada.
