The actor, who announced this week that he had secretly married, confirmed on Wednesday that he was marrying writer Fatima Farheen Mirza on Wednesday’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
« It is weird, isn’t it? I think because we live in a social media age, if you don’t go into the megaphone about things the way it is, it’s a secret – but I never know how much oversharing is « , he said to Fallon, « I like matcha lattes, but it just never comes up. I am not a secret matcha latte drinker. «
The couple first met » so by chance « in a New York cafe while preparing for his movie » Sound of Metal « , in which he plays a heavy metal drummer who is slowly losing his hearing.
« We just sat down at the same table in a cafe where we both showed up to write, » he said. « We both huddled through the same laptop plug, like a very modern way of doing things and we became friends and then reunited. «
He said meeting Mirza at the time made the film all the more special for him.
» Obviously, I’m Fatima for the first Met times and met so many people in the deaf community who have become friends. And there is only one thing in all this time about this movie that has changed life, « he said.
What their secret wedding looked like, said Ahmed, you would have kept things small because of the pandemic.
« Obviously I kept it super intimate and socially distant. It was just like hardly anyone was there, ”he said. “We did it in a back yard, which is nice in many ways. And I think the best part about it was that you didn’t have 500 aunts clamped on your cheeks. No disrespect to the aunts. «
He went on jokingly, » Asian weddings are big. These people are always crawling through the woodworks that I consider to be some kind of impostor. You just smell the kebabs on the street and just walk in. “
Ahmed first brought the news of his wedding on the January 11 episode of Louis Theroux’s“ Grounded ”podcast, saying,“ It’s the first time I’ve mentioned you in an interview Congratulations on this incredibly exciting ball. ”
