Any special memories incidents you would like to share?
Aamina: On October 29, 2009, we were at the International Filmmakers Awards Festival in Kent, UK. Mohib was nominated for Best Actor for a foreign film titled ‘Insha Allah’. We were very excited and thrilled to be there. The hosts were about to announce the winner of his category, we both looked at each other nervously, crossed our fingers, prayed and seconds later heard ‘Mohib Mirza’ was announced as the winner. There was a roar around us. Instead of instantly running up to collect his award, Mohib turned to me and handed me a thin, long, slick black case and asked me to open it. I did and it was a necklace with a star pendant, which had ‘Aamina’, engraved across it. He handed it to me, smiled and walked up the stage to collect his ‘Best Actor’ Award. I was floored, teary eyed and extremely proud of him. It is a very precious moment and a memory we both cherish.
