Johar Deep



BBC One is set to bring back ‘World On Fire’ for a second season, which will feature an ensemble cast including Pakistani actor Ahad Raza Mir.

Telling the story of World War Two through the eyes of ordinary people, following intrepid young heroes fighting for freedom, series two will take viewers from the war-torn streets of Britain deep into Nazi Germany, the resistance within occupied France, and the brutal sands of the North African desert – where troops struggle to adapt to a very different kind of combat.

Mir will play the role of fearless and determined Rajib, who leads a specialist unit of the British Indian Army.
