Hasan Minhaj, an American comedian, discusses his recent acting debut on Apple TV’s The Morning Show and how it was a watershed moment for him in many ways.

During an interview with the New York Post, the former Daily Show correspondent revealed insights about working with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

“It is a very relevant show. It is poppin’. And for a long time, America deemed Muslims culturally irrelevant. So I’m making my community proud. That means a lot. I want to be part of projects like that, that I didn’t think were possible,” he says.

He went on to explain that he had discussions on Muslim portrayal with British actor Riz Ahmed as well.

“We’re both children of immigrants; both of our parents speak our native tongue and have accents, and were hard-working first generation. He’s part of the diaspora in the UK of Desi Muslims. I’m part of that diaspora here in the US. That connection is really deep. We saw our stories in each other,” he revealed.
