He had earlier said that returning to Pakistan after 13 years ha been ’emotional’ for him. 

“It is like visiting an ex,” he had said amid raucous cheers. 

On his earlier visit to Pakistan, the actor had expressed hope that Pakistanis and the Pakistani diaspora can reach out to each other. “I would love to know about and collaborate with artists here. I think we just need to know that it is okay and that we are welcome here.”

Ahmed became the first man of Asian descent to win an acting award at the Emmys.
