The ‘Sound of Metal’ star revealed in January he had recently tied the knot with Fatima Farheen Mirza, and has now opened up on the sweet way he asked the beauty to marry him.

Riz said Fatima originally thought he was “joking” when he used the tiles in the word-based board game Scrabble to spell out “will you marry me”.

Speaking during an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, he said: "We went out to the park, one of the few things we could do at that point in lockdown, and we kind of had a little picnic and you know, I popped the question. And she looked up and was like, 'You're joking.'

  Missed the BAFTAs? Here are the five best moments from this year's pared-back awards ceremony From an unintentional crack at the British persona to tributes to Prince Philip, here are the top moments you might have missed at this year's ceremony.And after being criticised last year for being too white (maybe with cause: every actor nominated was white while Margot Robbie and Scarlett Johansson were both nominated twice), there was also a bit of redemption in this year's list.

Ahmed said he proposed during a game of Scrabble . Ahmed , who is among the British stars in contention for an Academy Award this weekend for his portrayal of a drummer losing his hearing in Sound of Metal, said: “We went out to the park, one of the few things we could do at that point in lockdown Ahmed said to Theroux he tied the knot “not very long ago” after being quizzed by the host about his marital status when he mentioned his “ wife ’ s family” on the podcast released in January. Riz , who was born in Wembley, west London mentioned staying in California because of his “ wife ’ s family.”

Riz Ahmed had an adorably cheesy proposal for his wife , Fatima Farheen Mirza. Ahmed detailed his proposal plans to Jimmy Kimmel on Monday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic limited the actor ’s options so he went with an oldie but a goodie.

“Maybe the way I proposed didn't help because she's a novelist, she's amazing with words. She loves a bit of Scrabble. So we were actually playing Scrabble and I did that corny thing where I stole all the correct letters up and spelled out 'Will you marry me?' ”

Meanwhile, Riz previously explained how he met his wife “randomly” in New York while he was preparing for his role in ‘Sound of Metal’.

He said: "We just both sat down at the same table in a cafe, where we both turned up to write. We were both jostling over the same laptop plug points, like a very modern way of meeting."

The 38-year-old Oscar-nominee said the two quickly "struck up a friendship" and later "reconnected down the line”.

He added: "But it's weirdly one of the many things about preparing for this role that was so special. It just brought a lot of goodness into my life.”

Riz and Fatima married in a garden wedding amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which he joked was better than a big ceremony because he didn’t have "500 aunties around you pinching your cheeks”.

He explained: "It was kind of interesting doing it with COVID and everything going on, obviously kept it super intimate and socially distant.

“No disrespect to the aunties, but Asian weddings are big. You always got these people crawling out of the woodworks who I think are probably imposters. They just smell the kebabs on the street and just wander in."

Anthony Hopkins caused uoset with Best Actor Oscar win .
Hopkins, 83, won the coveted gong for his role in The Father, becoming the oldest person ever to win an acting Oscar. It is the second Academy Award for the British icon, who first won 30 years ago for his role as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of The Lambs. Hopkins has since been nominated a five further times, but he was not expected to take home this year's award, with many believing Boseman would be honored with the gong posthumously. Boseman passed away last from colon cancer last August at the age of 43, but he received a Best Actor nomination for his role in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
