While speaking with The Handmaid’s Tale’s Elisabeth Moss, Riz Ahmed revealed his Slumdog Millionaire audition was hand-down his worst audition. The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor said he wanted the role that Dev Patel ended up getting, which was the lead character Jamal, a young man who happens to do well on Who Wants to be a Millionaire in India, thanks to picking up random information throughout his life. However, Danny Boyle thought Ahmed would be better playing the brother, a gig which ended up going to Madhur Mittal. From what Riz Ahmed said in the video (published by Variety), he may have tried way too hard during the audition. At least he can laugh about it, now.
