The Resident Evil franchise consists of numerous action-horror movies starring Michelle Rodriguez (Claire Redfield), Ukraine-born actor Milla Jovovich (Alice), leaders of a commando team who have to break into a vast underground genetics laboratory where a virus has been unleashed, turning people into the “undead” (those who have died are brought back to life by the virus).
Mir recently starred in a cross-border love story — Dhoop Ki Deewar — alongside fellow actor and his wife Sajal Aly. The ZEE5 web series earned the actor a lot of fans, thanks to his marvellous acting skills.
