Riaz is the name of a hero who spent more than a decade with the Loverboy badge or Romantic Hero in his crowd. He made his film debut in 1995. It didn’t take long for filmmaker Riaz to win the popularity medal under his name due to his style, fluency in acting and taste for work. After Salman, he became the producers’ first and best choice.
He joined Shabnur and gave her some amazing photos. He later tied the knot with many others. However, he was very successful with Purnima. In his long two-decade career, Riaz has presented numerous commercial successes.
